The Madison Education Foundation (MED) is looking for “foodies” who want to enjoy great local cuisine while raising money for children to experience symphony music up close and personal.

On Tuesday, April 12, MED will host a fundraiser in which participants will travel on a traditional yellow school bus to “taste” several of Phoenix’s best-loved and new restaurants: Flower Child, Joyride, Shake Shack and Southern Rail. Food pairings and cocktails will be served at each location.

Groups will depart at 5:30 and 6:15 p.m. from the Madison District Office at 5601 N. 16th St. The donation of $65 per person will benefit the foundation, which will use the funds to bring the Phoenix Symphony’s Assemblies to all eight of the schools in the Madison Elementary School District.

Seating is limited. Tickets are available to the first 100 people to book a reservation; visit For more information, call 602-664-7964.
