A delicious, fun event is happening this weekend. You need to get to this one – you’ll feel good about it and it’s for an important cause. I can’t wait!
Every year, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosts the annual Passion For Food & Wine at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore. It’s amazing. It’s a very high end event with some of Baltimore’s best chefs cooking (right at the table!) for guests. It’s like nothing else in town. But, then it’s not something everyone can afford. So this spring, the Passion For Food & Wine chefs and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation are hosting another food-driven event. This time, a bit more casual – a summer barbecue with an amazing group of chefs at Union Craft Brewing. Yep, you know it’s gonna be good.
On Sunday, May 31, many of the same chefs who participated in the 2014 Passion For Food & Wine event will be taking their cooking outside for this fun and delicious “Urban BBQ” at Union Craft Brewing. Food will come from The Food Market, Fleet Street Kitchen, 13.5% Wine Bar, Roy’s, Apropoe’s at the Marriott Waterfront, Wit & Wisdom, The Charmery, The Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore, Aldo’s, Dooby’s and Jerry Pellegrino’s Schola. Music will be provided by DJ Daniel Biltmore – one of the best DJs I’ve ever had the chance to hear – he played another party I organized at Union a few years ago and people danced all night. Each chef will be cooking up delectable meats and sides for everyone’s enjoyment.
One reason I’m involved is my friend Katharine Scrivener. She is a CF patient and CFF ambassador here in Baltimore. The struggles that Katharine and other CF patients go through every single day make me want to support this cause. Her strength and grace are something to really admire. She’s incredible.
Chef Zack Mills of Wit & Wisdom had this to say about the event and cause, “I’m very excited about the Urban BBQ! I’ve been involved with Passion for Food & Wine events for four years now and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has become very close to my heart. I think the BBQ will be another amazing way for the local restaurant community to support such a great cause. I’ve been very fortunate to become friends with Katharine Scrivener over the past few years and she has been an inspiration to both myself and the rest of the Wit & Wisdom team. Her strength, kindness and passion are things to be truly cherished and something we can all learn from. She is an amazing woman.”
Tickets are $45 for all you can eat BBQ, your first raffle ticket and your first beer – that’s a GREAT deal. Tickets are also available for kids 12 and under for $10. Kids under 3 are FREE. Bring the family! A portion of the ticket sales will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the important work they are doing to find a cure for the disease that affects so many.
