AltaMed's 2010 East LA Meets Napa

AltaMed's East LA Meets Napa Event

Wine & Latin Food: They Said It Would Never Last
Fine Wine and Latin Cuisine Converge at East LA Meets Napa
– a Benefit for AltaMed Health Services Corporation

On Friday, July 09, 2010, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, AltaMed Health Services will be hosting the Fifth Annual East LA Meets Napa celebration and it returns better than ever with an expanded courtyard in one of Los Angeles most historic settings – Union Station. This year, the event also presents some of Baja California’s best wineries to showcase wines from the Valle de Guadalupe region in commemoration of Mexico’s Bicentennial celebration. The event will feature the diversity of Los Angeles’ Latin cuisine and fine wine from Latino-owned or –operated Napa Wineries through 60 wine and food pairing stations.

East LA Meets Napa speaks to the ongoing preference among aficionados to pair wine with Latin food instead of beer or margaritas. The event will provide more than 1,400 entrepreneurs, community leaders, and food and wine enthusiasts with the opportunity to support AltaMed’s mission – increasing access to quality and culturally relevant health and human services to underserved communities in Southern California. During the past 41 years, AltaMed has been committed to providing quality care without exception.
