WebPanel_2013 First Taste Fundraiser(2)

An annual event since 2007, the First Taste Fundraiser brings together supporters of First Person Arts for an unforgettable evening of personal stories from leading figures in the arts, food, or media spheres. The event captures the heart of our mission: that everyone has a story to tell and that sharing these stories connects us to each other and the world.

All proceeds benefit our programs and services, which include writing and storytelling classes for youth and adults, the annual First Person Arts Festival, and Applied Storytelling projects that shine a spotlight on the amazing true tales of everyday people. Past First Taste honorees include former editor of Gourmet Magazine, Ruth Reichl; Soledad O’Brien; the host of NPR’s Morning Edition, Steve Inskeep; and Chief Wine Critic for The New York Times, Eric Asimov.

The next event will take place spring 2014. Stay tuned for more details.
