Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa Announces Yearlong Music Fundraisers 'Wine. Dine. Jam. 2017'
Local Monterey High School and Pacific Grove High School Music Programs will Benefit from Six Fundraising Events hosted by Hyatt Regency Monterey.

The Monterey Peninsula has a long and successful history of supporting and nurturing music in local schools. Now the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa will add to that legacy with several music-themed fundraisers throughout 2017.

This exciting promotion will raise funds for Monterey High School Instrumental Music Boosters (MHSIMB) and Pacific Grove Music Boosters (PGMB).

The yearlong promotion includes two monthly fundraising opportunities for each school, as well as— the March Jazz Fling and the November Rocks Jazz Jam when both Monterey and Pacific Grove come together for joint performances.

Monterey High School Music Boosters will be designated April and Sept while Pacific Grove Music Boosters will have May and Oct.

During the months designated for each school, 30 percent of the proceeds from sales at TusCA Ristorante, Fireplace Lounge and/or Knuckles Sports Bar will go to that school. A guest at any of these venues needs only to mention that they are, for example, “supporting the Monterey High School Music Boosters” and a donation equaling 30 percent of that patron’s check will be made by Hyatt Regency Monterey.

In addition to the month long fudrasing opportunity a dinner performance will be held from 6-8 p.m. on the first Wednesday during each of the school's promotional months, and will feature a performance by the school’s student musicians inside TusCA Ristorante. 100% percent of the proceeds from that evening’s TusCA full-menu revenues will go to the school.

The March Jazz Fling will be held on Sunday, March 5, 2017, from 5:30-730 p.m., and hosted by the Hyatt Regency Monterey. Pacific Grove and Monterey high schools will come together to celebrate the talent, hard work and passion of their student musicians. Ticket prices will be $45 for adults and $10 for students, inclusive of all taxes and gratuities, with children 5 and under free. Eighty percent of the proceeds from the online ticket sales will go to that school.

To kick off the holiday season the November event will be a Battle of the Cans! to be held on Sunday, November 12th from 5:30 to 7:30pm and will be a Rocks Jazz Jam and food drive for charity. Student musicians will put down their school’s music folders and pick up their own sheet music and perform with their own bands and other projects . Guests will be asked to bring 10 cans of food to donate to the Food Bank For Monterey County. Students from each school will jam with their student bands at this fun-filled musical benefit. Cost is $25 (plus 10 cans), and includes one drink ticket and small bite.

Cook with soul ... Eat with pleasure!

This earthy, sweet root vegetable comes in red, pink, orange, yellow, and white varieties, as well as a range of sizes. Both the bulbous root and leafy stalk are edible, making it a versatile ingredient in both raw and cooked dishes. We like to keep roasted beets on hand for soups, purées, and wraps. Just rinse each bulb, wrap individually in aluminum foil, and roast in a hot oven for an hour. The common garden beet’s vibrant fuchsia hue will color anything it's cooked with. Try pickling beets with hard-boiled eggs for a beautiful snack.
