Helping out nonprofits in the Central Oregon community just became a little bit easier – the lineup of Sagebrush events has something for every budget and every interest. All proceeds go to the Sagebrush Match Fund, which is raising money for more than 100 local and regional charities that serve the community.
Deschutes Brewery Street Fare – July 13, 6pm
Based on a wildly successful inaugural event held in Portland last summer, this outdoor festival in downtown Bend on Oregon Avenue will feature the area’s best local restaurants along with local indie music. Restaurants will pair their specialty dishes with Deschutes ales for an evening of food, live music and craft beer. Tickets are sold at the event only. A $10 entrance fee also gets guests their first food and beer pairing. After that, all pairings are $5 each.
Sagebrush Private Dinners – July 14
The Sagebrush Private Dinners provide an intimate dinner in exceptional settings: two select private homes in Central Oregon. Each exclusive dinner is prepared by a local chef and two celebrity Sagebrush Feast chefs. Tickets are $500 each. To join a private dinner, contact Aimee Baillargeon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-408-6341.
Sagebrush Feast – July 16, 5-10pm
A mainstay of Sagebrush, visitors to this must-attend event from will not only sample the food of celebrity chefs, but actually meet them in person! Held outdoors in the beautiful setting of Broken Top Golf Club, this popular event features small plate pairings, amazing live music, Deschutes Brewery’s handcrafted ales and Northwest wines. Tickets cost $200 each, a VIP table of eight costs $2,000, and a VIP cabana costs $1,500 (not including Feast Tickets). Tickets can be purchased at sagebrush.org.
The Sagebrush Classic, now simply called Sagebrush, has been benefiting the Central Oregon community for 22 years; raising more than $2 million for nonprofits through its popular golf tournament and feast. In 2011, the event has expanded from a single weekend to a week-long series of events that will benefit more than 100 area nonprofits. email@example.com
