Feast for a good cause at the Epicurean Esprit

From page A3 | May 16, 2013 |

The Epicurean Esprit, which offers a taste of Yolo County’s finest wine and cuisine, is back for the 24th year on Thursday, May 23, at the Yolo Fliers Club, 17980 County Road 94B west of Woodland. The event, which runs from 6 to 9 p.m., is a fundraiser organized by Friends of Meals on Wheels to support the Elderly Nutrition Program in Yolo County.

Featuring a variety of cuisine from more than 35 area restaurants, caterers, wineries and beverage distributors, the Epicurean Esprit offers generous samplings from pasta to pie, cabernet to coffee, in a garden party atmosphere. A silent auction offering an eclectic collection of items donated by area businesses and individual supporters also is planned.

Friends of Meals on Wheels supports the Elderly Nutrition Program of Yolo County, a senior meal program balancing nutrition with socialization for local elders. Last year, nearly 81,000 nourishing meals were served to 1,200 seniors in Davis, Woodland, Winters, West Sacramento, Esparto and Knights Landing.

Some folks enjoyed their healthy lunches at their local senior center, while the frail homebound elderly received their meals at home, delivered by concerned, committed volunteers.

Jill Schreiner, president of Friends of Meals on Wheels, hopes the Esprit will raise more than $40,000 this year. The Elderly Nutrition Program is faced with rising expenses because of an increase in food and fuel costs and cutbacks in funding from government agencies.

“We need your support more than ever so the Elderly Nutrition Program does not have to cut back services to seniors,” Schreiner said. “Please come out and join us for a fun evening on May 23 while supporting the seniors of our county.”

Tickets are $40 per person and may be purchased at Strelitzia Flower Company in both Davis and Woodland, and at National Real Estate, Terry’s Hallmark and the Gifted Penguin in Woodland. Tickets also may be purchased on at http://esprit.eventbrite.com or at the Elderly Nutrition Program office, 40 N. East St., Suite C, in Woodland.

For more information, call Kathy Aukes at 530-304-4682.
