Kicking Hunger with the Bengals and Taste of the NFL

Each year, I am honored to represent Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Bengals at the Taste of the NFL, held the night before the Super Bowl. Proceeds from that event raise money to fight hunger across the country and here in Cincinnati–for the Freestore Foodbank.

This year, you have the opportunity to give. And maybe receive… and Kick Hunger all at the same time. I am competing to raise money against other chefs in NFL cities.

Starting Friday, November 28, we’ll be raffling off a five-course dinner for two with wine pairings, here at the Table, AND a football autographed by Marvin Lewis, Andy Dalton and A.J. Green.

Raffle tickets will be available at theTable for $10 each or 3 for $20 (cash only).  Tickets will be available through December 31, 2014 and we will draw the winner, January 2, 2015.

So help me Kick Hunger, have a little fun and get the opportunity to brag about Cincinnati when we go to the Super Bowl–for the Taste of the NFL.

(Need not be present to win)
