Gourmet on Gore is one of my favorite food events in Vail, artwork above created by Carrie Fell! One can really be on their own schedule and eat as much or as little (not likely) as one would want. On Friday, August 30, under an overcast sky, I arrived at Perch in the Vail Village for the beginning of the Gourmet on Gore Tasting Tour, where the proceeds of the evening benefitted Habitat for Humanity of Eagle and Lake Counties.
About a week ago, I had the utmost pleasure to attend the Empty Bowls fundraiser at Battle Mountain High School in Edwards, Colorado. This luncheon raises funds for the Vail Valley Salvation Army, where a fourth of the annual budget restocks food pantries and provides food assistance throughout the Valley.
