Ticket Giveaway: Red & White on Thursday Night

On Thursday, January 28, 2016 you could join me and more than 750 guests at the 19th Annual Red & White on Thursday Night, a wine and food event presented by Cleveland Clinic Akron General, benefiting the Arthritis Foundation.
The evening takes place from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Quaker Station at The University of Akron, 135 S. Broadway St., Akron, OH 44308.

The event, voted one of the best in Akron by AkronLife Magazine, is expected to raise more than $82,000. All proceeds support critical local Arthritis Foundation initiatives including advocacy and access, help and support, and research.

In addition to delicious dishes from Akron’s top chefs and a variety of wines from domestic and international wineries, Red & White on Thursday Night also features an exciting silent and live auction. An exclusive VIP Lounge experience is also planned that will give VIP ticket holders access to special fare from Chef Dante Boccuzzi of DBA, specialty desserts and high-end wine pairings. Special features and other surprises are planned. VIP ticket holders also have access to the main event.

General admission tickets are $85 in advance, or $95 at the door. VIP Lounge tickets are $125 in advance, or $135 at the door. Purchase tickets online at www.akronredandwhite.com or call 216-285-2822.
