The event will be held at the Sierra College Rocklin campus on Saturday, April 27.

This year’s event is sponsored by Wells Fargo as the presenting sponsor and many other local businesses and individuals, such as Sutter Roseville Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente, Thunder Valley Casino Resort, Vanir Construction Management and many others. Also, more than 50 restaurants and wineries in the region will be present to showcase their food and wine in support of Sierra College students.

Donations received this year will be focused on funding internships, the Student Emergency Fund and scholarships for former foster youth. “A Taste of Excellence” is the foundation’s largest annual fundraising event.
