End Childhood Hunger @ Lola's on Harrison 6/11/09

I published a post a few weeks ago regarding the Gold Medal Wine Tour dinner series. There are thirteen dinners in South Florida through November. In a nutshell, the dinners feature the best wines from the 2008 American Fine Wine Competition and proceeds benefit Kids in Distress, End Childhood Hunger, Crohn's & Colitis and PROPEL. K

The next dinner is at a great restaurant, Lola's on Harrison in Downtown Hollywood. Chef Michael Wagner's menu sounds awesome and it benefits End Childhood Hunger.

This should be a great meal for a great cause.
