The Madison Education Foundation (MED) is looking for “foodies” who want to enjoy great local cuisine while raising money for children to experience outstanding art programs in the Madison School District.

On Thursday, Oct. 6, MED will host a unique fundraiser where participants will travel on a traditional yellow school bus to “taste” several of Phoenix’s best-loved and new restaurants: Joe’s Midnight Run, Stock & Stable, The Herb Box and Phoenix Ale Brewery and Central Kitchen. Food pairings and cocktails will be served at each location. Seating for the tour is limited to 100 total guests.

Groups will depart at 5:30 and 6:15 p.m. from the Madison District Office, located at 5601 N. 16th St. The donation of $65 per person will benefit the Foundation, which will create teacher grants to support music and the arts in Madison District schools.
