Why? Locavore Giveaway!

You all know I love eating local, but it wasn’t until I attended the Locavore fundraiser last year that I learned there’s a name for those of us who love to eat local!


This year, Locavore will again bring together some of the best local eats and drinks to benefit the National MS Society’s Ohio Buckeye Chapter. The local chapter of NMSS covers 38 counties, serves over 11,000 people with MS, and funds research, services, and education.

This year’s Locavore event takes place at Windows on the River on Friday, September 27. The event includes food and wine from AMP 150, Momocho, Lilly Handmade Chocolates, Cork & Cleaver Social Kitchen, Maize Valley Winery and more.

Aside from great food and wine, the event also honors Susie Zimmer, this year’s Individual of Inspiration Award winner, who helps make it easier for those with MS to participate in therapeutic aquatic classes.


Tickets for Locavore are $60 for general admission, which includes food and wine from all vendors, and $80 for patron admission, which also includes a pre-event wine tasting. You can purchase tickets online or you can enter to win 2 general admission tickets right here!

Here’s how to enter: you can do one, two, three, or all four entries, just leave a SEPARATE comment for each.

1. Leave a comment telling me which vendor you’re most excited to try at Locavore.

2. If you like NMSS Ohio Buckeye Chapter and Why CLE? on Facebook, leave a comment letting me know you like both pages. If you don’t already, you can like NMSS Ohio Buckeye Chapter here and Why CLE? here.

3. Follow @nmssohiobuckeye and @WhyCLE on Twitter and leave a comment letting me know you’re following both.

4. Tweet the following phrase and leave a comment letting me know you tweeted:

I want to celebrate being a Locavore with @nmssohiobuckeye and @WhyCLE: http://wp.me/p1fb9r-1FC

You can tweet once per day for additional entries, just leave a separate comment each time you tweet.

The giveaway will close on Sunday, September 1 at 11:59pm and the winner will be announced the following day. Good luck!
