Preview Masters of Taste 2017 - Pasadena

I don't always get invited to the Rose Bowl
for events other than football and soccer,
but tonight it's a different kind of event.

Tonight is the preview of the 2nd Annual
a luxury food and beverage festival
which takes place on the field of the
Rose Bowl on
Sunday, May 7th, 2017.

A 100% of the proceeds
Working to end homelessness in our community.
