Zesty Food Manufacturers Join Forces to Battle Debilitating Disease

Gourmet food distributor Innuendo Enterprises LLC join with local food manufacturers at Hot Licks Festival to raise funds for ALS research.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 22nd, 2005 – Innuendo Enterprises LLC, a distributor of shelf stable gourmet food products, participated Sunday, in the Hot Licks Annual Fiery Food Festival.

The Hot Licks Fiery Food Festival, which began in 1995, was designed to showcase the wild and emerging world of spicy foods in San Diego. It has grown during the past 10 years, and is attended by thousands of people each year. Besides the sheer entertainment value of this event, each year proceeds from the event are donated to a charitable organization. This year proceeds were raised to benefit ALSA.

The ALS Association (ALSA) is the only national not-for-profit voluntary health organization dedicated solely to the fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (often called Lou Gehrig’s disease). The mission of The ALS Association is to find a cure for and improve living with ALS. The ALS Association, Greater San Diego Chapter is dedicated to families affected by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis through patient support, advocacy efforts, public awareness and education while enabling research for a cure and improving quality of life.

Innuendo Enterprises LLC is extremely proud to be a part of events like this which benefit organizations that help so many people. Craig Learner and his business associate Jane Wagner are the owners of the fabulous Seaport store, Hot Licks, which hosts this event.

When I lived in San Diego, I had the oppurtunity to attend the Hot Licks Festival in person and was quite fascinated with the number of small manufacturers within the San Diego area. In fact, the Hot Licks store in Seaport is where I first picked up a bottle of Baboon Ass Brand Hot Sauce. It wasn’t until many years later that I picked the bottle up again and sent Ron a snail mail inquiry regarding his products. Now, Sweat ‘N Spice carries both Baboon Ass Hot Sauces. Although it’s very small, the Seaport Hot Licks is well worth the trip if your in the area.
