I recall many years ago Angel being the one to start Wine + Food. Didn't you ask for a lot of handouts from businesses to get your "cause" going? Is it still a problem to raise money for this non-profit (no, you now charge them to be a part)?
Now that it's successful, it seems you forgot where the roots were founded. No money, but a good idea, and asking for donations (specifically from the food industry) in order to gain a footing to make the event grow.
