A Taste of East LA Meets Napa

Another year, another amazing AltaMed’s East LA Meets Napa food and wine festival. What sets the annual downtown Los Angeles apart this year is the vast and growing need for support AltaMed provides. The spate of current events have left many people in Los Angeles and Orange counties, and around the country, feeling vulnerable, fearful to seek medical treatment and other services they made need. That makes AltaMed, who presents the festival, more vital than ever. The always sold-out event draws 2,000+ people annually and proceeds benefit AltaMed’s initiatives and services that create access to health and dental care, senior and HIV services, teen mentoring programs, and more to undeserved families in Southern California. It’s an excellent way to eat amazing food, drink spectacular wine, and support a great and necessary local cause. It’s an event you won’t want to miss in 2020.
