The Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF), a nonprofit that helps families navigate their child’s journey through cancer, will celebrate their 15th annual Harvest for Hope fundraiser on Sunday, September 30 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Liberty Station’s BRICK. Harvest for Hope aims to raise money for low-income, underprivileged families whose children are battling cancer. The annual event features some of the finest chefs in San Diego who will create unique dishes paired with wine and spirits, music, and a live and silent auction.

“Since 2003, Harvest for Hope has brought the community together to indulge in delicious cuisines from renowned San Diego chefs,” said Diane Nares, co-founder of the Emilio Nares Foundation and founder of the Harvest for Hope event. “This fundraiser is an opportunity to enjoy local cuisine, music, and friendship while raising money and awareness in support of children battling cancer.”

Attendees will enjoy local restaurants and breweries including The Pioneer, Crust Pizzeria, Harry’s Coffee Shop, Legal Restaurants, Morton’s Steakhouse, Pamplemousse Grille, Punch Bowl Social, Snake Oil Cocktail Company, Solare, Sweet Cheeks Baking Company, Tequila Fortaleza, Thorn Brewery, Waypoint Public, The Pendry Hotel, Terra Restaurant Group, and more!

Richard and Diane Nares founded ENF in 2003 after their son Emilio lost his brave battle with cancer at only five years old. Since then, ENF has provided families in San Diego and across the county with resources and support. Their flagship Ride With Emilio transportation program provides free rides to and from the hospital to ensure that no child misses a life-saving cancer treatment due to lack of transportation. Other services include Emilio’s Loving Tabs shirts, a nutritional snack bag program, a family resource center, therapeutic knitting classes, and end of life child and family care.

Tickets cost $145 per person or $1,000 for a group of ten people. For more details about the event and to RSVP, visit www.enfhope.org/news-events/. To learn more about the Emilio Nares Foundation, visit www.enfhope.org.
