Locavore ~ and a Giveaway!

Locavore. Are you wondering what in the world that is? You may be one and don't know it! 

The quick definition is one that pays attention to their food and eats food grown locally whenever possible. I like to think of it as a Green Foodie. But in this case, Locavore is a delicious fundraiser for the Buckeye Chapter of the National MS Society. Here's the scoop:

When: August 21, 2014 
5:00 - 9:00 PM
Where: Windows on the River 
Bridge View Room 
2000 Sycamore Street
Cleveland, OH 44113 

SEE MAP

Your senses will be indulged as you sample delicious hors d’oeuvres, decadent chocolates and pastries from local Cleveland vendors, all paired with some of Ohio's finest wines made from locally grown grapes.

There will be lots of my favorite local chefs showing off what they do best including:
Wine will be provided by Barrel Run Winery, Ferrante, Valley Vineyards and M Cellars

All this food and wine is of course fabulous, but you know what the best part is? The proceeds benefit the Buckeye Chapter of the National MS Society. This charity is very close to my heart thanks to many friends and family affected by this disease. I participated in the MS Walk for many years but I have to say, this is a much tastier way to support the cause!

Tickets are $60/ $80 each and can be purchased online by clicking here. Unlimited food and wine are included in both levels but the Patron Ticket also includes an exclusive wine tasting with a wine expert prior to the start of the event. 

And thanks to the Buckeye Chapter, I have two tickets to giveaway to one of my awesome readers!

** Disclosure: The Buckeye Chapter of the National MS Society asked me to help promote Locavore. In exchange, I was given two tickets for myself and two to give to one of my readers. I support the MS Society on my own in many ways including personal donations, participating in the MS Walk and more. All opinions are my own.**
