Project by Project San Francisco Announces 9th Annual Tasting Benefit
San Francisco, CA (June 27, 2018) – Project by Project San Francisco (PbP SF) is proud to announce the location and date of its signature event, Plate by Plate. Every year star chefs, top rated restaurants, and renowned mixologists from across the San Francisco Bay Area will come together and donate their talents to support local nonprofits. Over 500 influential and diverse professionals engage in stimulating conversation, participate in silent auctions, and enjoy an unforgettable night of gastronomic experiences!
This year’s Plate by Plate SF will be hosted at the stunning San Francisco Design Center Galleria (SFDC), right in the heart of San Francisco’s historic Design District. The open 12,000 sq. ft. atrium and multiple levels will allow dozens of celebrated vendors to be on full display under the night sky. Plate by Plate SF will be held on September 15th, 2018.
Plate by Plate is the oldest and largest Asian American tasting benefit in the nation, and the only one of its caliber that is organized and executed entirely by volunteers. Previous vendors include Alexander’s Steakhouse, Campton Place, Mister Jiu’s, Dosa, Grgich Hills Estate, Peju Province Winery, Remy Martin, and dozens more.
Project by Project believes in standing up for immigration and immigrants at a time when ongoing anti-immigrant rhetoric and policy changes has left our communities in a state of fear, uncertainty, and confusion. Immigration issues have a larger impact on our communities than typically thought: 1 in 4 US children are from immigrant families, and 3 million of those children are of Asian/Pacific Islander descent. All net proceeds raised from Plate by Plate SF will benefit PbP SF’s 2018 partner, the Vietnamese American Community Center of the East Bay (VACCEB).
For more than 20 years, VACCEB has been a refuge and resource for low-income, Southeast Asians and other underrepresented immigrant communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. VACCEB provides a variety of support services including access to nutritional meals, senior programs, housing assistance, immigration legal and education services, ESL classes, and employment development.

Comprised of a team with backgrounds across finance, consulting, technology, media, entertainment and law, PbP’s founding team felt it could do more to empower the Asian American community. They established an organization with the mindset of volunteering, increasing awareness and fundraising for fellow organizations within the Asian American community.
