“Taste” Raises $20,000 for Arts in Title 1 Schools

The 8th Annual Taste of the Biltmore was held on Oct. 2, 2014 at the NB|AZ Corporate Headquarters in Phoenix. The annual event featured tastes from more than 20 restaurants in the Biltmore area, with ticket sales benefitting a local nonprofit organization.

For the second year, NB|AZ selected Act One as the recipient of the proceeds from Taste of the Biltmore. Act One provides access to the arts through the educational Field Trip Program for Title 1 schools and the Culture Pass Program at public libraries throughout the Valley. Annually, more than 200,000 students and families experience live performing and visual arts through this nonprofit organization. This year’s event raised more than $20,000 for Act One.

“We were beyond thrilled that NB|AZ chose Act One as their partner again for this year’s Taste of the Biltmore,” says Act One founder Linda “Mac” Perlich. “They created such a memorable event and opportunity for us to bring awareness of our efforts to bring the arts to children who would not ordinarily get the experience.”
