a-MAY-zing events this month with TCC!

It’s May, and we want to celebrate spring with you!IMG_0514

The fun that we have together will help us with funding we need to continue turning high school classrooms into kitchens and professional chefs into teachers.

This month, we have two a-MAY-zing events on the calendar. With each event there are still a call-out for volunteers. We’d love to have your help—and maybe even have a little fun together while we’re at it!

Join us on Wednesday, May 17th from 5-9pm at Migration Brewing. 10% of all sales image 2during that time-frame will be donated to TCC. Plus we’ll be hosting one heck-of-a silent auction with prizes from the likes of: Jenn Louis, Naomi Pomerory, Josh McFadden and Ava Gene’s, Hot Mama Salsa, Ahearne Cycles, Ken’s ArtisanImaginary Authors Fragrances, Firebrand Sports, Metropolis Bike Shop, Love Hive Yoga, Honey Mama’s, Dove Vivi, and more!

We still need a couple of volunteers to keep things running smooth on those fabulous silent auction tables. Available volunteer shifts are 7-8pm and 8-9pm. Please contact: maggie@thecurriculumofcuisine.org / 503.896.4531

Just a couple of days later, on Saturday May 20th, we will be talking TCC and raffle tickets as the beneficiary of “Portland Monthly’s” 6th annual Country Brunch CB_eblast_Vendorshin-dig at Rossi Farms.

There will brunch bites and libations (yep, that infamous Bloody Mary Smackdown,) from these fine folks: Besaws, Doug Fir Lounge, Fried Egg I’m In Love, Irving St. Kitchen, La Moule, Lauretta Jean’s, Olympia Provisions, Pine State Biscuits, Pono Farms Soul Kitchen, Prasad/Harlow, Raven & Rose, Red Star Tavern, Seastar Bakery, The Solo Club, Verdigris, and Vivienne

This is an amazing opportunity for TCC, but we need your help to reap the most from it! Throughout the event we need volunteers on TCC’s behalf to roam the party and help hold down a table selling raffle tickets. (It’s those raffle ticket proceeds that TCC receives!)”Portland Monthly” will make it real easy by giving those who have purchased raffle tickets a visible indicator (a badge, a button, a hat?). That way, you save the embarrassment of soliciting a guest about who has already purchased tickets. You will be given a “script” to talk about the tickets and TCC. Attendees will already know what’s available from the raffle as it will be in the guide they receive upon entry.Of course, your volunteering for TCC also gets you into the event for free! (And trust me, this is truly a fun event.) Available volunteer shifts: 11am-1pm, 12pm-1pm, 1pm-2pm.Please contact: maggie@thecurriculumofcuisine.org / 503.896.4531

Looking forward to a-MAY-zing good times in support of the culinary education and food literacy of our high school youth!
