As Thanksgiving rapidly approaches, all of us at Chilipepper Event‚ĄĘ (CPE) want to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to you for your patronage and especially for your support this year.What an exciting year this has been for our company!¬†The year began with the fabulous event, ‚ÄúAn Evening in Saigon,‚ÄĚ with Martell Cognac.¬† Chilipepper Event‚ĄĘ helped to promote the brand and educate novice drinkers about cognac tasting.We also had the privilege of creating events for such notable organizations as the Asian Pacific American Heritage Celebration with Mayor Edwin Lee, Friends of San Francisco City Planning, World Arts West, Healthy Parks Healthy People, Chinese Progressive Association, Give2Asia, Commercial Real Estate Women of San Francisco and many others.

In partnership with Beverly Picardo of Tomayto-Tomahto Marketing, we created a new sister company. In keeping with our motto, ‚ÄúBringing people together with food, wine, and local chefs,‚ÄĚ Chilipepper Dining‚ĄĘ focuses on creating small, private and unique dining experiences with local neighborhood chefs and restaurants.¬† We are excited to be helping small business to grow, share ideas and cross-promote.

As a way to give back to the community, Chilipepper Event‚ĄĘ has been proactive in creating sustainable and organic urban vegetable gardens in schools and a farm-to-table dining experience in an International Montessori School with children as young as three years old.¬† CPE also volunteers in local charitable causes like Independent Filmmaker events and the Asian Business League, which promotes Asian American leadership in corporate America.

All this would not have been possible without the ongoing support and encouragement of our wonderful clients and friends like you.  Thank you so much!

Should you know of any opportunities for which we can provide our expertise or partner with you to produce an outstanding event, we always appreciate your referrals.  Recommending us to your friends and colleagues is the highest compliment we could possibly receive.

We sincerely wish you a wonderful Holiday Season with your loved ones, and may you and yours enjoy a healthy, happy and prosperous 2013!

Warm regards!

In partnership with the parents and teachers of the Pacific Rim International School, Chilipepper Event‚ĄĘ is helping to develop the Organic Garden Project, which incorporates the sustainable and organic environment into the existing curriculum.¬† Led by their teachers, curious and interested children of all ages are able to experience the garden each day.In age-appropriate ways, the Organic Garden Project encourages students to:

  • Develop an appreciation and respect for the natural environment via practical life experience.
  • Learn hands-on farming and gardening skills, including the opportunity to harvest fruits and vegetables such as beans, herbs, carrots, chards, pumpkins and tomatoes.
  • Observe the life cycle of plants and the entire process of farm to table cooking
  • Learn directly from farmers, gardeners, and chefs about the different steps of the process that make up the food chain from field to finished product.
