Case Study : Fillmore Wine & Food Festival

<strong>Special</strong> Events

In support of the Fillmore Merchants Association’s mission is to promote Fillmore Street and maintain the style and essence that is purely Pacific Heights, Strongpoint’s events team developed a three-day culinary tour of Fillmore Street. From a stylish sampling of Pacific Heights’ illustrious eateries to a sensory-laden “journey” through India, San Francisco’s new wine and food festival whet attendee’s appetites for fun at lunchtime, cocktail hour and dinner.

For each event they produce, the Fillmore Merchants Association raises money for local non-profits like Pets Unlimited, Women’s Community Clinic and Ronald McDonald House. Funds raised by the Fillmore Wine & Food Festival went to supporting the hard work of the neighborhood Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home for 137 families with children in critical care at one of the local hospitals.
