Market Under Glass

One week from today, over 50 local chefs and assorted beverage purveyors will convene at The Galleria at Erieview in downtown Cleveland to support the Cleveland Foodbank's Harvest for Hunger Campaign. The annual food and funds drive allows four area food banks to provide FREE food to local hunger centers in 21 counties. The Cleveland Foodbank serves more than 450 hunger centers in a six county area, and just $1 donated to the campaign provides enough food for four nutritious meals to struggling men, women, and children in Northeast Ohio.

For just $85 (340 Meals), you could be enjoying samples from some of the best restaurants in the Cleveland area on Thursday, April 22nd from 6-9 p.m. at Market Under Glass. Some of my fellow fabulous bloggers have been talking about this event because they will be there as "celebrity servers"- paired with a restaurant station for one hour of the event to meet and mingle with guests. Don't you want the chance to meet Alexa from Cleveland's A Plum, Charity from I Heart Cleveland, Cara from iCarabout, or Allison from Confessions of a Cohabitant? They have had some great posts about the event recently, and one lucky reader of each won tickets in a giveaway!
