Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® Orlando returns August 9

Once again this year I am honored to be Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® Orlando Brand Ambassador by promoting this amazing event to help our community and avoid childhood hunger. In exchange for my participation I received two discounted price tickets to enjoy the dining soiree.

Childhood hunger is a serious matter and we can all hold hands and help our community against childhood hunger by attending this year’s Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® Orlando on August 9th. This event is a one of it’s kind where over thirty local restaurants and the Orlando community unite to benefit two local charities that I personally support via volunteer activities and help with fundraising and awareness of the several events they organize each year to help our community this is  Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
