San Antonio Cocktail Conference
Local nonprofit Houston Street Charities, the organization behind the San Antonio Cocktail Conference, is selling gourmet picnic baskets for a cause during Houston Street Food
on Sunday, Sept. 29.
The outdoor picnic will feature $45 gourmet basket lunches, prepared by four local restaurants, with a community-style dining table in the middle of downtown Houston Street. The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Event proceeds will benefit the San Antonio Food Bank’s
Kids Café program, which provides less-fortunate children with healthy after-school snacks and meals. The event is critical to raising funds and awareness for the program, said Eric Cooper, CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank.
“Rather than children getting crackers and powdered drink mix as a snack – or no snack at all – Kids Café meals and snacks are provided as alternatives,” Cooper stated in a recent press release. The event is critical to raising funds and awareness for the program. “We are very humbled to be part of such a unique event.”
Here's a breakdown of the picnic baskets:
The Palm Restaurant
will offer Nova Scotia lobster rolls, housemade potato chips and a choice between a mini key lime pie or cheesecake.
Bella on Houston
