$15 of the ticket price benefits The Three Sisters, the high school garden program of Slow Food Russian River.

Slow Food envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet.
We oppose the standardization of taste and culture, and the unrestrained power of food industry multinationals and industrial agriculture.
Our approach is based on a concept of food quality that is defined by three interconnected principles: good, clean and fair.
GOOD: a fresh and flavorsome seasonal diet that satisfies the senses and is part of the local culture.
CLEAN: food production and consumption that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or human health.
FAIR: accessible prices for consumers and fair conditions and pay for producers.
Slow Food believes food is tied to many other aspects of life, including culture, politics, agriculture and the environment. Through our food choices we can collectively influence how food is cultivated, produced and distributed, and as a result bring about great change.
Informed and selective consumers become co-producers by demanding food that is good, clean and fair.
