Silver Spoons Awards Party

This Thursday, May 13th, "R" and I will be attending the 16th Annual Cleveland Magazine Silver Spoons Awards Party at the InterContinental Hotel. This fabulous tasting event benefits our local chapter of the Arthritis Foundation. Proceeds will support programs and services for the nearly one million Northeast Ohioans with doctor-diagnosed arthritis, and fund critical research.

I have heard about this event since moving to Cleveland two years ago, and I've always wanted to attend. I also have never been inside of the InterContinental, even though many events are held here throughout the year. So we decided that this was the year! We will be sampling dishes from over 20 of Cleveland's restaurants. All participating restaurants are 2010 Cleveland Magazine Silver Spoon Award Winners. For a list of vendors and what they will be serving, check out my fellow blogger's post over at Poise In Parma. If I thought that I was excited about this event before, reading that post just pushed me over the edge! She asked which dish/restaurant people were looking forward to the most, but I couldn't pick just one. Good thing I don't have to!

Tickets are $80 (sorry, VIP tickets are sold out), and you can purchase them here. You can also check out a preview of their fantastic live and silent auctions. They have some great packages up for bid, and there will be some very lucky winners in the crowd.

If you are unable to attend, but I think you really should consider joining us, you can help by making a donation...
