A Hungarian dinner for a cause.
Benefit Dinner for the Conductive Learning Center of San Francisco

Where: Bar Tartine, 561 Valencia (at 16th St.)

When: Monday, June 27, cocktails at 6:30 p.m., dinner and auction follow

Cost: $250 per person (includes wine, tax, and gratuity; fully tax-deductible)

The Rundown: Many know Tartine Bakery's beautiful pastries, but may be far less familiar with co-owner Elisabeth Prueitt's other focus. The chef recently founded the Conductive Learning Center of San Francisco, a nonprofit school for children with motor disabilities such as cerebral palsy and spina bifida.

Opening this fall, the school will provide access for Bay Area children with motor challenges to a medical-educational system not widely seen outside of founding doctor András Pető's native Hungary. Prueitt and Tartine co-owner husband Chad Robertson's child has cerebral palsy, and benefited from visiting a school modeled on Pető's system, Michigan's Conductive Learning Center. Now, Prueitt and school cofounder and teacher Krisztina Abonyi-Bernstein face financial hurdles.

The first benefit dinner will feature a family-style Hungarian dinner from Bar Tartine chef Nick Balla and wines from Alex Fox, with desserts from Prueitt. Live music during dinner will precede a silent auction featuring a Tartine bread baking apprenticeship with Robertson, sailing lessons from OCSC, and items from San Francisco restaurants such as Bar Jules, Boulette's Larder, Foreign Cinema, Locanda, and more.

This event looks like it will be a blast!  I'm glad Elisabeth Prueitt will be doing something like this for the Conductive Learning Center of San Francisco.  I am able to engage with young people who were diagnosed with cerebral palsy through my work with http://www.birthinjuryattorney... ,and it's great to see money being raised to improve their education.  Thank you!
