Where do the proceeds go?


$10 from each ticket goes to support local charities that serve the communities of North Mecklenburg and South Iredell counties. Each eating participant will vote for their favorite “food” or “charity” or “team” by placing their ticket in the bucket on each Team’s table. 

How about voting chefs?


There will be chefs from local restaurants who will judge and add “weighted” votes to their choice for “the best of the best” in each food category. We anticipate that up to $10,000 will be split among the non-profits represented.

Everybody will be a winner!

Is there a silent auction?


There will be music for entertainment and a silent auction to shop. From gift certificates to restaurants, jewelry, household items, sailing trip, baskets with goodies, etc. 

Can we get tickets?

Children under 5 are free.

Tickets on the day of the event are $15.
