City Fruit celebrates its 2013 harvest and raises funds to pick more fruit in 2014. SEATTLE, WA (October 10, 2013) - City Fruit will celebrate local fruit and cideries at the 3rd Annual Hard Cider Taste Fundraiser on Thursday, November 7, 2013 from 5 – 8 p.m. Hosted by Little Uncle Restaurant, 88 Yesler Way, the event coincides with Pioneer Square’s First Thursday Art Walk. A silent auction will feature items donated from Tom Douglas Restaurants, Modernist Cuisine, and more.
The fundraiser supports City Fruit's harvest and donation of thousands of pounds of fruit which would otherwise go to waste. Through City Fruit’s efforts, the bounty from Seattle’s backyard trees is distributed to dozens of organizations serving the hungry. Learn about the harvest and City Fruit's other initiatives, including Seattle Parks fruit tree stewards, at www.cityfruit.org.
Four Washington cideries--Alpenfire Organic Hard Cider, Finnriver Farm & Cidery, Snowdrift Cider, and Tieton Cider Works—will each bring a variety of hard ciders to taste, and Little Uncle’s will offer pairings of Thai street food. Cider may also be purchased by the bottle.
Advance tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets (www.bpt.me/472945) and tickets will also be sold at the door. Cost is $25/person ($10 for non-‘tasters’). Street parking is free after 6 p.m. for First Thursday Art Walk, and there will be free parking vouchers for the following garages: Butler Parking, Frye Parking, Pioneer Square, and Merrill Place.
