CANCELED: TASTE 2020

 

NEWS ABOUT TASTE 2020

Hello friends of Root Division!

With all that has happened over the last two weeks, it will likely not come as a surprise that TASTE 2020 will not be happening on Thursday, April 16. Based on the Shelter in Place mandate as well as the CDC’s recommendation to cancel gatherings over 50 people, it is clearly not possible to host you for this event any time soon. Because the extent of the current crisis—the timeline in particular—is not yet clear, we are currently in a holding pattern for a rescheduled date.

We have been putting together a truly fantastic, artfully-inspired experience for you -- with generous support from 20 chefs/ mixologists and over 70 other local businesses. We want to take this opportunity to encourage you to support these businesses and restaurants in whatever appropriately social-distanced way that you can -- order delivery, buy gift cards, schedule a private event for later in the year -- anything that will reciprocate and pay forward their incredible generosity.

If you have already purchased tickets or confirmed as a sponsor, we will be in touch shortly with more details. In the meantime, we are working hard to keep our team safe and our arts ecosystem healthy. We would love your support in any shape or size that you can send through the internet! Donate today to help us keep doing what we do best: empowering artists, promoting community service, inspiring youth, and enriching the Bay Area through the visual arts.

Thanks for your patience, understanding, and continued support during this unprecedented time.

Michelle Mansour, Executive Director & The Root Division Team
