You can purchase tickets online here.

Or, you can enter to win two free Event Tickets here on my blog. Just use the Rafflecopter entry below, and I will select a random winner on Friday, July 25th.

a Rafflecopter giveaway Locavore is sure to be a fun and memorable evening, and a great way to get together for an evening out. All proceeds benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Ohio Buckeye Chapter. The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now – to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. MS stops people from moving. They exist to make sure it doesn’t. They help each person address the challenges of living with MS through their 50-state network of chapters. The Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. The Ohio Buckeye Chapter serves over 14,000 people with MS and their families in a 64-county area. To learn more about where your money goes, you can visit the website.

Disclosure: I was provided with four passes to the event in exchange for hosting this contest and a recap blog post. Two tickets will be given away to a random reader that enters, and two are media passes for myself and a guest to attend. All opinions stated are 100% my own.

Since I haven't yet I'd have to go with Urban Farmer Cleveland Steakhouse. Can't go wrong with any though. Sounds like an awesome event for an awesome reason.

I LOVE Momocho, but I would love to try Urban Farmer CLE and I would definitely take a trip to Hudson to try Nosh!

I still haven't tried Momocho

They all sound great - I'd say Lago because I haven't tried them since they moved, or Urban Farmer! :)

I'm looking forward to tasting the samples Momocho brings the most, although I'm sure all of the food will be delicious. I went to the event last year and had a great time!

Kristian said...

I'm looking forward (because I'm optimistic) of trying AMP150. I already got myself a spot lined up for Urban :-)

The table by the wine cellar at Seared in Brecksville would be an ideal birthday dinner locale!

I know it's a tragedy but I've never been to Momocho so I would like to try their food.

Momocho seems like the popular choice...but I haven't been able to try it yet!
