Satisfy your hunger AND help feed children

Nearly 17 million children in the U.S. will face hunger sometime this year. That's one in four children. Please help Share Our Strength provide them with good nutrition and food so they can concentrate on learning at school and growing into healthy adults. Be a part of the solution by attending Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation fundraiser on Wednesday, May 12 at the Georgia Aquarium.

Sample specialties from more than 50 of Atlanta's star restaurants! It's one stop for trying out the cream of the crop restaurants you've been hankering to visit, including Aqua blue, Aria, Ecco, JCT. Kitchen & Bar, Marlow's Tavern, Pacci Ristorante, Spice Market and Woodfire Grill. Wine tastings, three auctions -- silent, live and wine -- and live entertainment by Charley Marshall and Joe Gransden will keep you busy between bites. Mind if we drop some names? Jane Fonda is the Honorary Chairperson, and Dean Fearing of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas serves as Honorary Chef for the evening. Guests attend from 6:30-10 p.m. with $350 VIP tickets; guests purchasing $250 general admission tickets enjoy the event from 7:30-10 p.m.

Georgia Aquarium: 225 Baker Street, NW; 404-581-4000.
