Taste of Temecula
Sponsored by the Temecula Education Foundation, the Taste of Temecula Valley (TOTV) is held annually, rain or shine, on the last Saturday of April, located at Town Square in front of Temecula City Hall, Old Town Temecula. This event combines live performances from local and nationally-known entertainers with an opportunity to sample Temecula Valley’s finest foods, wines, and beers.
Proceeds benefit the more than 28,000 students in the Temecula school district. Sponsored by the Temecula Valley Foundation for Excellence in Education (TVFEE), a 501(c)3, TOTV serves to raise awareness of the foundation’s work in supporting art, science, and technology curriculum enhancements in TVUSD schools. For more info on TVFEE, visit its website: www.tvfee.org.
"Then, as now, we’re holding the Taste of Temecula Valley for the kids,” said Chairman Mark Katan. “This event is good for our local economy, and it benefits students in our district. With budget cuts and funding shortfalls, our schools need community support now more than ever,” he added. “The Foundation’s goal is to alleviate the fundraising burden from parents and administrators by planning events that benefit all schools in the Temecula district. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law, and monies raised will support education in the arts, sciences, and technology – areas that otherwise will suffer further decline,” Katan said.
Since 2011, the foundation has donated over $80k to support arts education and other curriculum enhancements.
Additionally, this June will be our sixth year of sponsoring summer high school acceleration and enrichment classes.
The event actually has a history dating back more than 20 years. In the late 1980s, a food and wine tasting event was championed by the Community Recreation Center Building Foundation, resulting in the construction of the Temecula Community Recreation Center (CRC), now part of the 128-acre Ronald Reagan Sports Park. By resurrecting the popular taste event, the Temecula Education Foundation is following in its footsteps, this time targeting funding to benefit students in all TVUSD schools.
The Temecula Education Foundation is an all-volunteer, 501(c) 3 nonprofit corporation. For more information on sponsorship, booth space, or volunteer opportunities, contact Katan at (951) 283-5305. TOTV tickets are made available in late March/beginning of April through the Old Town Community Theater Box Office.
Over the past four years, some of their favorite/best volunteers have been teachers, and the foundation would love to have your support again this year. Volunteers get free admission and a free T-shirt! All volunteers must attend one training session AND must register online – all details are in the flyer.
