Market at the Foodbank Ticket Giveaway

One of the best food events in Cleveland is coming up on Sunday, April 22nd- Market at the Foodbank (formally Market Under Glass). This year, the 17th annual event, moves from the Galleria to the Cleveland Foodbank's 100,000 square foot community food distribution center. The event benefits the Foodbank's annual Harvest for Hunger spring campaign, and brings together over 1,000 people to enjoy a night of food and drink from more than 50 of Cleveland's best restaurants, caterers, and beverage purveyors. The night also includes an auction, chance raffle, entertainment, local celebrity servers, and more.General admission tickets are $85 each, or $100 at the door. A VIP ticket option is available for $150, which includes an exclusive private reception and early entrance. Or, you can win two general admission tickets here!

The Foodbank has generously provided me with two tickets to give away to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment below telling me which restaurant you look forward to trying from the list of fantastic restaurants participating in this event. You have until Monday, April 9th to enter, and I will use random.org to select a winner. You can receive a second entry by tweeting: "I want to win #MarketatFoodbank tickets from @BiteBuff at http://tinyurl.com/6vbd3se ." Make sure that you leave a separate comment for each entry.

Here is a little preview of what some of the restaurants will be serving:
Georgetown (formally Three Birds)- shrimp ceviche salad
Grovewood Tavern- lamb burgers
Noodlecat- rice balls served with maggie mayo and nori bonito
Spice Bar & Kitchen- spring soup sips
The Greenhouse Tavern- shaved asparagus salad with pecorino and crispy pancetta
Washington Place Bistro & Inn- braised lamb cheeks with fregola sarda, olives, and sundried tomatoes

There will be something savory for everyone, and lots of sweets and adult beverages to accompany it all.Tempted yet? This event is one not to miss, and all proceeds benefit one of the best organizations that our city has. For every dollar donated to Harvest for Hunger, the Cleveland Foodbank can provide enough food for four meals in a local hunger center. This year's Harvest for Hunger goal is to raise enough food and funds to provide 16 million meals to our local hunger centers. 16 million- wow, and you can help! Enter to win my giveaway, or head straight over to www.cleveland.com/marketatfoodbank to purchase tickets.

Hope to see you there.

Disclosure: I was provided with two general admission tickets to give away to one reader, and two for myself and a guest to attend the event in exchange for this post. Also, I am a former employee of the Cleveland Foodbank, and used to plan Market Under Glass for them. My opinions are 100% my own.

I'm looking forward to trying Greenhouse Tavern. I was going to say Bar Cento, but as I've been there before, I'll branch out and go with Greenhouse Tavern.

Thanks to all the participating restaurants for coming together for a great cause and many thanks to you for giving it publicity. :)
