Come to S.Y. Kitchen for an exquisite dinner by Chef Luca Crestanelli, one of the restaurant’s founders. The dinner features winemaker Ernst Storm of Storm Wines and Notary Public wines. After working for several years as a winemaker in South Africa, Storm moved to California to experience the practice in a new environment, initially relocating to the Sierra Foothills. Storm’s move to Santa Barbara County was motivated by the region’s Mediterranean climate, which is
similar to that of the Western Cape where he originates.
All proceeds from the dinner benefit Sansum Diabetes Research Institute. Founded in 1944 by Dr. William Sansum, the institute is dedicated to “the prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes through research, education and care.”
Don’t miss the chance to hear from guest speaker and Olympic swimmer Gary Hall Jr. talk about his experience competing in high-level athletics with type 1 diabetes. Hall is an 10-time Olympic gold medalist, former world record-holder and champion for type 1 diabetes.
