Saturday (June 25) marks the return of the annual Mt. Baldy Fire Department fundraiser.
However, this year, instead of the usual steak fry, they’re doing things a little differently – it will feature food from a small gathering of food trucks and craft beer from a handful of local breweries.
Food trucks scheduled to participate include the
Rolling Sushi Van, Bacon Nation, the Eat ‘Em Up Truck and Mustache Mike’s Italian Ice.
First, the good news:
Victoria Gardens’ Tour de Fork is back for a fourth year. The event is one of our favorite Inland Empire food events.
Tour de Fork, which features sampling from restaurants, breweries and wineries from Victoria Gardens and beyond, isn’t one of our favorites just because of all the delicious food and drink. A full 100% of ticket sales benefit local charities. This year’s event benefits the
Rancho Cucamonga Community & Arts Foundation and the Rancho Cucamonga Library Foundation.
Now, the bad news: If you don’t already have a ticket, you won’t be going this year. The event, which takes place June 23, is already sold out.
Upland has one. So does Pomona. Starting tomorrow (May 18), Montclair will have a
Jersey Mike’s Subs, too.
The new location,
9359 Central Ave., Suite B, is hosting a fundraiser through May 27.
The sandwich shop distributed thousands of fliers with various offers and will donate $3 for each offer redeemed. Recipients are the
Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and the American Youth Soccer Organization.
The National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger food drive, the largest single-day food drive in the country, returns this Saturday (May 14).
It’s simple to participate! Just root through your pantry and gather some non-perishable items (please make sure that they’re not expired and avoid glass containers) and bag them up.
Then just put them by your mailbox before the carrier comes on Saturday.
In years past, we’ve written about the annual
Dining Out For Life charity event, during which restaurants help raise money for AIDS service organizations.
Thus far, however, the focus has been on Palm Springs-area restaurants raising money for
Desert AIDS Project, which is great, but what about the rest of the Inland Empire?
Well…we’ve got good news: For the first time,
Foothill AIDS Project is going to be a beneficiary.
The San Bernardino

About 40 Redlands businesses — including eateries and breweries — will be hosting a “Bonded & Strong” fundraiser today (December 19) for victims of the December 2 terror attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino.
Parliament Chocolate and à la minute are leading the charge (along with International Day Spa) by donating 100% of sales — and in the case of à la minute, at its three locations in Redlands, Claremont and Orange — to the cause.
The recently-opened Eastvale Juice It Up! is hosting its grand opening from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday (December 19).
