Ticket Giveaway: 2016 Cleveland Chef Gala

The 3rd Biennial Autism Speaks Cleveland Chef Gala on Saturday, August 6, 2016 is just around the corner.  Chef Gala is a unique culinary extravaganza with all proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks to help change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorder.
The event, hosted by The Chew’s Chef Michael Symon with Special Guest Bobby Flay will honor Shari and Michael Goldberg for their tireless support of Autism Speaks over the last 10 years.
The evening begins with a cocktail reception highlighting close to thirty renowned Cleveland chefs preparing one-of-a-kind dishes. After the reception, all guests will be treated to a sit-down dinner featuring an interactive dinner preparation by Iron Chefs Michael Symon and Bobby Flay. This year's event will be held at the Cleveland Convention Center.

The Cleveland chef line-up for the cocktail reception is impressive. You can check it out here.

Tickets to the event include two drink tickets, complimentary valet, tastings from the Cleveland chefs, and family-style service during the interactive dinner demonstration. The general admission tasting tickets, for $250 each, are still available online here, but they do traditionally sell out.

But, it's your lucky day, because I am giving away two general admission tasting tickets to the 2016 Cleveland Chef Gala. Just use the Rafflecopter form below for multiple ways to enter. Don't forget that you can tweet daily for additional entries. The winner will be selected on Friday, July 22nd.

I attended this event two years ago, and it was a gorgeous evening filled with great food, a unique setting, and a special cooking demonstration that was quite entertaining to watch. Chef Symon brings his Cleveland charm, and hearty laugh, to the stage. This is one culinary event that you won't want to miss, and for a very worthy cause that is near and dear to many. 

Disclosure: I was provided with four general admission tasting tickets to this event in exchange for this giveaway and a post-event review. All opinions stated are 100% my own. Images was provided by Autism Speaks.

My favorite is Gordon Ramsay because he tells it like it is. And I love the show Hell's Kitchen.
