1st Annual Latin Taste Fest

The First Annual Latin Taste FestSaturday, June 1, 4pm-10pm – Hilton Miami Airport Hotel, 5101 Blue Lagoon Dr., Miami

Latin Taste Fest at at Hilton Miami Airport Hotel as hotel sponsor, was not only a high-end celebration of Latin culture, but also an alleviation of hunger through exclusive charity partner Feeding South Florid.

Presented by the event planning and management company Latin Events Network, Latin Taste Fest is promoting the importance of the Latin community, which has purchasing power of over $1 billion in the U.S. The food, wine and spirits extravaganza featured cuisine sampling, wines, beers, brand liquors testing, plus an eclectic variety of live Latin musical entertainment, exhibits and activities. A variety of top local Latin restaurants offered a taste of their specialty dishes. VIP guests had additional access to a special casino-themed area with select restaurants, wine and spirits exhibitors.

“Fresh, homemade meals are an important part of bringing family together in Latin culture,” said Feeding South Florida CEO Paco Vélez. “What a wonderful idea for an event to incorporate the celebration of food, music, and art in Latin culture to benefit Feeding South Florida, which helps bring families together by setting the table for the 1 million individuals who are food insecure in South Florida.”

A portion of ticket sales proceeds and all food overages from the event will be donated to Feeding South Florid, the leading domestic organization working to end hunger in South Florida. Through a local network of approximately 400 Partner Agencies, Feeding South Florida strives to serve the almost 1 million individuals in need, including more than 300,000 children, the elderly and the working poor, in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties.
