About East La Meets Napa/ OC Meets Napa & Bordeaux
California’s largest Community Health Center, AltaMed is excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its signature fundraiser, East LA Meets Napa that this year will incorporate elements from Bordeaux. Co-chaired by revered Chef John Rivera Sedlar, the annual food and wine event will bring the best Latino-centric restaurants in Los Angeles and Latino-owned wineries in Napa together in Downtown LA’s iconic Union Station on Friday, July 17th to raise money that will support essential health programs in underserved communities.
This year, French chefs and Bordeaux wines will also join the mix as part of AltaMed’s collaboration with the City of Los Angeles’ Sister Cities Program, which promotes cultural exchange through food, ideas, and art with select destinations around the globe.
In addition to authentic food and exquisite wines, guests can explore the dedicated Napa and Bordeaux pavilions that will showcase the artistic contributions of both cultures, including the personal collection of art from renowned Chicano artist Cheech Marin and a showcase from the Anthony Quinn collection in celebration of his 100th Birthday.
