The Santa Monica Conservancy invites you and your friends to our exciting virtual silent auction, Plates in Places, beginning Sunday, July 18 through Sunday, July 25. We are delighted to honor Santa Monica’s food legacy and the people and places that enrich our community and its neighborhoods by feeding our stomachs and our souls!
This week-long celebration of Santa Monica’s rich and diverse food history will feature special events with local chefs, cookbook authors and artisans. And you’ll get the chance to bid on cooking classes, exclusive culinary experiences, specialty foods, wine and more.
Restaurants, bakeries, hotels and food and spirit vendors are the heart of our neighborhoods. They nourish us and serve as gathering places for our community. They provide continuity in our neighborhoods, making our city feel like home. Whether you live in Sunset Park, Ocean Park, the Pico Neighborhood, Wilshire/Montana, Mid-City, north of Montana or Downtown, the places you love — both historic and emerging — make your neighborhood unique.
Our auction will open on July 18 at 9 a.m. and close July 25 at 9 p.m. Click here to register on Betterworld to bid in our auction. Participation in the auction is free. Proceeds will provide essential support for the Conservancy’s community programming and tours. Help us spread the word by sharing this event with family, friends and neighbors!
