Restaurant tasting event to benefit organization that helps women undergoing breast-cancer treatment

Twelve Long Beach restaurants and three local bands will gather on Saturday, May 4 with a host of artisans to offer “Taste at the Point,” a fundraiser for the organization Breast Cancer Angels. The event will be at Grace First Presbyterian Church, 3955 Studebaker Rd. from 11am to 3pm.
For a donation of $15, visitors will get samples of food from all of the restaurants, plus a drink and dessert. The restaurants include Blackbird Café, Tiagos, Cirivello’s, The Dog House, M’Dear’s, Long Beach Vegan Eatery, Sweet & Saucy Shop, Roadhouse Grill, Buono’s, Glory Days Grill, Gladstone’s and Grounds.
There will be an artisans/craft fair on the grounds of the church, with more than 25 vendors selling their wares. Barbara Manning, Sawtooth, and The Dovelle’s will provide live music through the day.
Faye Dietiker founded Breast Cancer Angels (BCA) in 2000 with the goal of raising money for women in treatment to pay for essentials, such as food, medicine and housing. Dietiker, a survivor herself, was alarmed at how many women going through treatment were forced, due to low income or means, to make untenable choices, such as deciding between paying for food for their children or medicine for themselves. Her goal was to create an organization that was operated entirely by volunteers that would give away 100 percent of the money raised to in-need women in treatment and their families. A corporate sponsor pays their overhead, which enables BCA to assist more than 400 clients and their families in Southern California, and every year the need grows.
