Tickets Now Available for Taste of Potrero 2016

May 12 Event Provides Access to San Francisco's Hottest Bars and Restaurants Under One Roof

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 18, 2016) - Join us for the most delicious fundraiser to sip, savor, nibble and nosh with the best restaurants and bars in San Francisco! Tickets are now available for the sixth-annual Taste of Potrero, a food-lovers soiree featuring San Francisco's most delectable restaurants and bars benefiting Daniel Webster Elementary in Potrero Hill. Tickets sell-out every year and are now available at Eventbrite. One hundred percent of proceeds benefit local public education.

In the past five years, Taste of Potrero has raised more than $500K for Daniel Webster Elementary, an underserved public elementary school. The funds raised at Taste of Potrero are critical to maintaining a high level of instruction and supportive learning environment for all students. In recent years, the event funded teacher salaries, our award-winning character and physical skills program Playworks, professional development for teachers, tutoring for students, and so much more. In an era of limited public education budgets, Taste of Potrero literally makes the difference for Daniel Webster Elementary.

"It has been truly inspiring to witness such enthusiastic support from San Francisco foodies for the benefit of local public education," said former San Francisco Mayor and Potrero Hill resident Art Agnos. "Taste of Potrero's growing success truly exemplifies the impact that a community can have when it comes together."

Admission with one ticket allows you unlimited access to as much food and drink as your heart desires. More than 40 of the City's finest restaurants and bars will provide tastes of their newest and boldest menu items -- and give guests the opportunity to meet and mingle with many of the cities hottest chefs. Participating restaurants and bars include State Bird Provisions, Liho Liho Yacht Club, Sous Beurre Kitchen, NOPA and Poco Dolce.

The venue is generously provided by Forest City and Pier 70 Partners. Additional sponsors include the Golden State Warriors, SV Angel, Orton Development, Inc., One True Vine winery, Trumark Urban and Umpqua Bank.

"As the Bay Area's team, the Warriors are committed to building strong and lasting ties with all local communities, including San Francisco," said Warriors CMO Chip Bowers. "When we had the opportunity to become involved with the Taste of Potrero event, which combines fine dining and fun while also supporting various public education initiatives, we were happy to lend our support."

Taste of Potrero 2016 will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 12 in Building 12 of San Francisco's Pier 70, the revitalization project currently underway to reclaim this historic stretch of San Francisco waterfront and bring housing, parks and jobs to Dogpatch.
