Remember last week, when I said that spring brought with it a whole host of great foodie fundraisers? Well, one of the biggest and best in town is happening on Wednesday, May 14: the 20th Annual Cleveland Magazine Silver Spoon Awards Party!
The event benefits the Arthritis Foundation, Great Lakes Region, Northeastern Ohio. One in every five American adults is diagnosed with arthritis. Arthritis also affect 300,000 children across the country. The Arthritis Foundation’s mission is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.
Aside from the fabulous restaurants you can enjoy at the event, there are also silent auction and raffles to help raise even more funds for the Arthritis Foundation. Silent auctions and raffles are highlights of events like this for me. First, when Matthew and I are lucky enough to receive tickets to an event, the silent auctions and raffles provide us with an opportunity to still give back to the cause.
But, that’s not all. There’s the chance to win some amazing prizes! This year’s Silver Spoon Awards Party Silent Auction is shaping up to be quite amazing. Check out some of these prizes:
Culinary experiences including three autographed Michael Symon cookbooks, and 4 tickets to see the Iron Chef live a taping of The Chew in NYC from Michael Symon Restaurant Group and a cooking class for 6 with Rose Wong at Pearl of the Orient’s East side location.
Behind-the-scene opportunities including a private tour for six people with a curator at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
Concert tickets to see Lady Gaga on Sunday, May 18, and Katy Perry on Thursday, August 14 at The Quicken Loans Arena — care of Cleveland’s New 102.
And much more! There will also be wine and “stock-the-bar” raffles going on that night! Not only can you leave the event with a belly full of Cleveland’s best food, you can also leave with a great prize or two! Follow @silverspooncle on Instagram to get a sneak peek at some of the auction items.
