Please join us for UPAC’s second annual Taste of Culture event hosted by UPAC’s Neighborhood Enterprise Center to be held at the Marina Village Conference Center, Baja Room, on Tuesday, May 23rd at 4:00pm.

This event showcases a unique tasting experience while learning about UPAC’s impact in San Diego County.  Attendees will indulge in various small plates, created and served by Chef Eddie Gochicoa and the youth who work at UPAC’s Neighborhood Cafe & Catering Services.

Each dish represents a unique culture from the City Heights neighborhood and celebrates its vibrant diversity. Through the “Taste of Culture” event we bridge cross-cultural understanding, connect partners and friends with UPAC’s mission and raise funds for our vital programs and services.

This ticketed event includes a cultural small-plate component, cultural entertainment, a silent auction and an art exhibit created by NEC youth. Tickets are $100 each and sponsorship opportunities are available for this event! To learn more or become a sponsor, contact Katie Boatman at or call 619-446-0805.

Proceeds from this event will support UPAC’s mission of improving the general well-being of ethnically and culturally diverse populations across San Diego County.
