Borderless Dine & Wine to Raise Funds for Mexico Earthquake Relief

Celebrity chefs Javier Plascencia and Claudia Sandoval will headline a weekend of wining and dining at The Westgate Hotel to benefit the Mexico earthquake relief fund. The two-night Borderless Dine &  Wine event will take place Friday, Sept. 29 and Saturday, Sept. 30.

The hotel is partnering with the Consulate General of Mexico in San Diego to raise funds for Cruz Roja Mexicana (the Mexican Red Cross).

On Friday, guests will enjoy small plates poolside created by the Culinary Art School of Tijuana, using Baja produce and meats provided by Sano y Punto, an organic grocery store/distributor in Tijuana. This will mark the official culinary debut by the students. Music will be performed by jazz singer Lorraine Castellanos. This event will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and costs $40 per person.

On Saturday night, guests will dine on a four-course prix fixe menu created by Sandoval and Plascencia. Each chef will construct two courses using sustainably sourced ingredients, and will be accompanied by wine pairings from Valle de Guadalupe, as well as live music. This event will begin at 7 p.m. and cost $130 per person.

Tickets for both evening events and tables for Saturday's event are available for purchase on the Westgate Hotel website.

Proceeds for both events will be directly donated to Cruz Roja Mexicana, which is registered by the Government of Mexico.
