The Original Taste

Join us for The Original Taste 2020 on April 25, 2020 at Scottsdale Waterfront.

We as a community are facing unprecedented challenges and we have been diligently reviewing options over the past few weeks with regards to The Original Taste 2020.  It was a difficult decision, but in light of the current restrictions and in the best interest of the health and well-being of all our sponsors, restaurants, vendors and patrons, we will be postponing The Original Taste. This is the first time our event has been postponed in the event’s 47 year history and our leadership and board are continuing to diligently monitor the status of COVID 19 with plans to reschedule.   We are analyzing a couple potential dates and will keep you posted.

As always, we appreciate your generous commitment to The Original Taste and thank you for your dedicated support that allows us to not only host an amazing event but raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for youth programs in our community. Working together with our dedicated restaurants and liquor vendors, our generous sponsors and our loyal patrons, we are confident we will continue to throw the best gourmet food, wine & cocktail party in the Valley when the circumstances allow it.  Our patrons play an absolutely critical role in helping us provide funds for local children’s charities and they are going to need our help now more than ever.

Executive Council 70 brings more than 35 years of experience hosting the Valley's premier food & wine tasting event. Presented by Executive Council Charities at the Scottsdale Waterfront, the event combines more than 40 of the Valley's best restaurants, over 50 wines from across the world, select brands of beer and premium liquor, entertainment and a scene you will not want to miss. This is not your average taste—this is THE ORIGINAL TASTE!

Proceeds from Original Taste benefit Executive Council Charities to fund critical youth programs at organizations like Phoenix Children's Hospital, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale, Ryan House, Foundation for Blind Children, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Jewish Family & Children's Service, Sojourner Center, New Pathways for Youth, UMOM New Day Centers and many more.
