Nearly 20 of the city’s top restaurants, bakeries, chefs and trucks will roll out an evening of holiday delights – from savory to sweet – on Monday, Dec. 8 (2014) from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Proceeds benefit the Battered Women and Children’s Shelter.
“Domestic violence has been making national headlines lately,” says Marta B. Peláez, BWCS president/CEO. “But it remains a local issue that knows no socio-economic boundaries – and no particular season.”
Nutcracker Sweets tickets are $50 for adults, $25 for 13 – 17-year-olds, and entrance is free for kids 12 and younger. Tickets are available online at NutcrackerSweetsSA.org or may be purchased by phone by contacting Brooke Bell at 210-930-3669.
In addition to festive bites and beverages from the city’s finest establishments, guests will be treated to live music and a performance by Ballet San Antonio, plus an upscale raffle.
The retail Nutcracker Sweets Shoppe also returns, filled with cookbooks, culinary specialties and holiday gifts that will make the season of giving even more delicious. Shoppe vendors will donate a percentage of their sales to FVPS.
