Wine Tasting Event to Benefit Wine to Water Cause

February 24, 2010

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ — A private wine tasting event this week will help benefit Wine to Water. Chef Michael Flores will donate his time by catering the wine tasting event, which anticipates up to 100 guests in attendance.

Wine to Water is a non-profit organization which focuses on raising awareness to the water crisis, often through events. Funds from these events and private parties go toward water projects around the world.

“We are excited to be able to enlist the help of chef Michael Flores to further our cause,” said Lynn Nicklo, the fundraiser organizer.

Michael Flores has taken a childhood passion for cooking and turned it into an evolving lifelong profession in the culinary arts. Despite his formal training at the Culinary Institute of America, Michael focuses on providing simple solutions for encouraging families to get back to the table.

“As a child I learned about ‘giving’ simply by watching my parents; they’ve always shared their time and resources with others,” said Michael. He added, “I am excited to have been invited to create the food for this incredible evening on February 27th. I’m honored to cook at this event that Lynn Nicklo has created.”

Wine to Water encourages people to join the cause by hosting their own private wine parties or public events to raise awareness for water-related deaths and diseases.

“Our mission is to provide clean water to needy people around the world and we could not begin to reach our goals without people like Lynn and Michael,” Wine to Water Founder, Doc Hendley said. “I want to thank Lynn Nicklo for planning the details of this event, as well as Michael Flores for offering his amazing talent by providing delicious food for the evening.”
