Join us Thursday, October 8, 2020 from 5:45 to 7 p.m.

Each year, Community Roots Housing (formerly Capitol Hill Housing) brings together some of Seattle’s finest bars, restaurants, and distilleries for a night of exquisite food and drink in support of our work. Although we can’t meet in person this year for our usual fundraising feast, we are holding a reimagined Omnivorous.

We're Cooking Up Something New

Working in the community is our bread and butter. This year, a virtual program will discuss how we can work together to nourish our community. Tune in to see local chefs, restaurateurs, and small business owners join Community Roots Housing CEO Christopher Persons in a dynamic conversation.

Immerse Yourself

This year’s event will kick off with a cocktail class, giving viewers a taste of what Immersive level ticket holders will get to enjoy after the program. The experts over at L’Oursin will provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to mix up a tasty drink that can be enjoyed with or without liquor.

Additional food and drink lessons hosted by local culinary scene experts will begin at 7 p.m. after the main program concludes. To sign up for these exclusive demonstration room experiences, make sure to register at the Immersive level. Keep an eye on your inbox for a full lineup of virtual demonstrations coming soon! 

Rent Relief

Community Roots Housing works alongside communities to build and preserve affordable housing. Our priority is making our neighborhoods safer, healthier, and more equitable.

The year 2020 has laid bare many injustices. One of them is the way that COVID-19 and its economic impacts have disproportionately affected low-income people, service workers, the elderly, and communities of color – so many of whom are Community Roots residents. That is why, for the first time in the history of this event, every dollar raised will go directly to rental assistance.
