About our Agency and the Spring Event

Our spring event, Star Chefs and The Wines They Love, benefits Child Advocates which serves abused and neglected children in Santa Clara County. Child Advocates recruits, trains and supports dedicated volunteers who work one-on-one with children in foster care. Child Advocate volunteers make a lifelong difference for children by serving as friends, mentors and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs).



Highlights of the Evening

Celebrate Child Advocates' twenty-seven years of service to abused and neglected children and enjoy small plate offerings by more than a dozen of Silicon Valley's star chefs paired with favorite wine. Rising Star Chef Ross Hanson of Restaurant James Randall in Los Gatos headlines the evening's culinary creations. Join Ross and over 300 guests for a rare dining event. Unique silent and live auction items complete the evening.
