On Monday, April 4, the Chevrolet Volt was the car of the night for Share Our Strength’s annual Taste of the Nation in Washington, DC at the National Building Museum. Washington’s finest restaurants, mixologists and chefs gathered to raise money and awareness to help end childhood hunger in our community and throughout America. All proceeds from this event directly benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, which includes support for our local beneficiaries Capital Area Food Bank, DC Hunger Solutions and Mary’s Center.
The Volt was on display alongside the VOLT restaurant station, where Celebrity Chef Bryan Voltaggio, fellow Volt driver, dished up some of the evening’s tastiest samples. Visitors to the Chevy Volt were given an intimate look at what the Volt is and how it works. Guests received complimentary Chevy Volt aprons and a few lucky winners received aprons autographed by Bryan Voltaggio himself!
Carolyn Markey, a GM spokeswoman, was also interviewed by Urban Revival Media DC at the event.
Some of the participating restaurants included: VOLT, Farmers and Fishers, Georgetown Cupcake, Northside Social, Pinkberry, and Tallula. The evening finished up with a silent auction allowing guests to bid on items such as: a four days, three nights Puerto Rican vacation, cooking classes at Columbia Room and PS 7’s and a wine tour and tasting at Loudon County’s Fabbioli Cellars.
Overall, the evening was a fantastic success! The “who’s who” of DC restaurants and chefs gave the city’s movers and shakers a night of food and festivities to remember!
