Taste of the Browns Ticket Giveaway

Cleveland Browns Stadium hosts the Cleveland Foodbank Taste of the Browns, Sept. 12

UPDATE: Congratulations to Kate for being randomly selected as the winner of the giveaway.  Kate — Please email me at clueintocleveland (at) gmail (dot) com to redeem your tickets by 9/2. Thanks to everyone for entering and check out this new blog post on how you can save $25 on tickets through Clue Into Cleveland: http://clueintocleveland.wordpress.com/2011/08/30/taste-of-the-browns-winner-and-a-special-ticket-discount/!


One of my favorite Ohio Blogging meetups was volunteering at the Cleveland Foodbank in March.  It was the first time I had been there and I was absolutely blown away by the staff and the facilities.

From its LEED-certified, 130,000 sq. ft. distribution center, the Foodbank provides 84% of the food that local pantries use to feed the hungry in Northeast Ohio. Donations of funds and food as well as volunteers are needed throughout the year so that the Foodbank can continue its mission.

One way to support them is through their annual Cleveland Foodbank Taste of the Browns event.

Taking place on Monday, September 12 at Cleveland Browns Stadium, Taste of the Browns is the “Party with a Purpose.” In addition to sampling 25 of Cleveland’s finest restaurants, attendees will be raising funds that will provide food to more than 600 hunger programs in six counties. Last year’s event raised $120,000, which made almost half a million meals possible in Northeast Ohio.

The Cleveland Foodbank serves more than 223,700 different people annually in its six-county area

Sports fans will also enjoy the event as Browns alumni and current players will be in attendance, mingling with guests.  And one of the raffle packages for the evening includes a tailgate party for 30 people catered by former Browns player Al “Bubba” Baker. Baker will personally deliver food from his Bubba’s Q restaurant to the winner.  With Bubba’s Q being right down the street from me, I can say — for the food alone — this prize is definitely worth it!

Taste of the Browns takes place from 6 to 9pm on September 12 in the AT&T City View Club Lounge of Cleveland Browns Stadium. Tickets are $150 and all proceeds benefit the Foodbank.  With $1 = 4 meals served at a local hunger center, one ticket alone can provide 600 meals to the hungry!
