Save the salty for Thanksgiving. Tomorrow you shall unleash your inner child and all the sugar craving that goes along with adolescence at the annual Sugar Rush. What is Sugar Rush? It's an annual benefit for Spark, a program that offers life-altering apprenticeships to youth in underserved and poor communities. But this is where you come in: an estimated 400 leaders and young professionals will gather at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel (at the Empire/Walnut, no less!) to feast on sweets (and some savory for good measure) from noted chefs at Arizmendi, Boulevard, Chez Panisse, Delfina, Humphry Slocombe, Mama's Bakery, Millennium, Recchiuti Confections, and Scala's Bistro.

Wines will be provided by August West Wine, Barber Cellars, Sandler Wine Company,
Pedroncelli Vineyards and Periscope Cellars. Ninkasi will provide the beer.

This sweet night for you mean and an even--wait for it--sweeter future for the students in apprenticeships made possible by Spark. So please help out. Some of you can more than afford it. Come on. Indulge.
