One of the primary missions of the Big Sur Food & Wine Festival is to donate a large portion of event proceeds to support local nonprofits that benefit Health, Safety, Education and Arts. In addition, it gives scholarships to talented Big Sur residents who would greatly benefit themselves and the community through wine and/or culinary education. In the last three years, the Big Sur Food & Wine Festival raised over $100,000 for the Big Sur community. We are proud to announce this year’s beneficiaries:
Big Sur Natural History Association
Big Sur Scholarship Recipient
Big Sur Socco Softball League
If you are a Big Sur youth pursuing a culinary, oenological, or sustainable farming education and are interested in applying for a scholarship, please apply with the following:
- Your name, address, phone and email address.
- A letter of reference.
- In 500 words or less, explain your focus of further education, why you are deserving of sponsorship, and your future goals of community service and professional attainment.
Mail the above in one envelope to Big Sur Food and Wine Festival, Box 31, Big Sur CA 93920. Only residents of Big Sur will be considered. Deadline for submissions is October 1, 2012. The recipient will be announced at the end of October and the award amount in early November.
