Hundreds of Stanislaus County residents ate, drank, and were generally merry on Sept. 3 — all for a good cause.
The annual Edible Extravaganza fundraiser brought roughly 1,500 guests to Modesto Center Plaza for the region’s premiere foodie event. The region’s best restaurants, caterers, bakers, wineries, breweries, and distilleries were all on hand, offering samples of their delicious wares.
The event generates funding for the Center for Human Services, a local non-profit which serves more than 20,000 children, individuals, and families in Stanislaus County. The tens of thousands of dollars raised at the Edible Extravaganza allow the non-profit to continue valuable programs like Hutton House, Friday Night Live, and Community Counseling Services.
