Help Diablo Ballet at 2011 Gourmet Gallop

On Thursday August 11, 5 p.m.– 8 p.m. there's an opportunity to sample gourmet food and wine at nine locations in downtown Walnut Creek.  The event benefits the Diablo Ballet and its acclaimed PEEK Youth Outreach Program.

The PEEK Youth Outreach Program brings arts education to 5,000 under-served elementary school children each year in Contra Costa County.

With arts education so underfunded, it's a wonderful opportunity to help the ballet reach out to these kids and introduce them to the joys of arts and ballet.

Your evening starts with a wine and live oil tasting at We Olive, featuring selections from Shadowbrook Winery of Walnut Creek. Then, you're off to taste the best food in the city with stops at:
  • Walnut Creek Yacht Club
  • Massimo
  • Eleve
  • Silk Road
  • Oi-C Bowl
  • Caffe Delle Stelle
  • CU Sushi
You are also invited to an exclusive Gallop wine tasting at Residual Sugar Wine Bar.

Rain or shine, participants will stroll around town at their convenience tasting the gourmet delights from these top restaurants. The dancers from Diablo Ballet will be galloping the streets with you all night long.

Tickets are $40. Groups of 10 or more can receive a special group ticket offer. To purchase tickets, call 925.943.1775 or visit the Diablo Ballet Web site Gourmet Gallop page.

Congressman John Garamendi recently issued a commendation for the PEEK Program for its continued commitment to serving the youth of our community.

For 18 years, Diablo Ballet has been bringing world-class dance to Contra Costa with the finest of ballet and contemporary dance works. For information, visit
