The Center for Human Services will be holding their 27th annual Edible Extravaganza—an evening of food, friendship and local welfare—Thursday, Sept. 5 from 6 p.m. to 9 the Centre Plaza in Downtown Modesto.

Although the event takes place in Modesto, spokesman Kate Trompetter said that the added income, supplied by the 1200 attendees, will support many branches throughout Stanislaus County, including Patterson.

“While Edible Extravaganza happens in Modesto, it supports all of what Center for Human Services does throughout the county. Services offered at CHS facilities, like the Patterson Family Resource Center, are supported by our overall agency fundraising efforts…” said Trompetter.

“Edible Extravaganza is a really easy and affordable way to support a great cause. It’s worthwhile because the programs that Center for Human Services (CHS) offers youth and families in Stanislaus County, including Patterson, are worthwhile. By attending, you’re are supporting our work.”

A courtyard reception will take place at 5 p.m. Doors will open to the public at 6 p.m. The event will showcase signature dishes and wines created by over 50 of the area’s newest and oldest restaurants and wineries. Live music will also be provided on two separate stages throughout the evening.

The event, co-sponsored by Prime Shine Car Wash, Save Mart Supermarkets and Valley First Credit Union, will feature tasty treats from local restaurants, caterers, bakers, confectioners, venders, beverage purveyors and growers throughout neighboring regions. Participating businesses include, but are not limited to, Papa Johns, The Chopping Block, The Boardroom, Bookies Sports Bar and Lounge, Tioga Sequoia Brewing Company and Texas Roadhouse.

Profits from the Extravaganza will raise funds for Center for Human Services, a private, local, non-profit agency, celebrating 43 years of service to Central Valley youth and families. Their programs including Hutton House, Family Resource Centers, Community Counseling Services, Pathways, Youth Court, Student Assistance Program and more.

Features also include special drawing prizes, a corporate sponsor lounge, a Best in Show contest amongst the vendors and Limited “Preferred” Tickets for $100—a special ticket that allows you to beat the crowds and gain a 5 p.m. entry.

Tickets are $40 in advance, $50 at the door and can be purchased at all Valley First Credit Union locations, The Modesto Convention and Visitors Bureau and Center for Human Services (526-1476).
