Clevelanders love two things for sure: football and food. So combining those two into a fundraiser for one of Cleveland’s best causes, the Greater Cleveland Foodbank, is a touchdown.
On Monday, September 15, the 16th annual Taste of the Browns will turn First Energy Stadium into a Clevelanders dream mix of Browns players and fabulous food. Chefs such as Rocco Whalen, Jeff Jarrett, Eric Williams, and Zack Bruell will be on hand preparing tasting dishes to enjoy. There will also be the chance to mingle with current and former Browns players, including event co-chair Joe Haden.
There will be a silent auction packed with sports memorabilia and other fabulous prizes and a wine and craft beer pull (new this year). Last year’s event raised over $175,000 for the Greater Cleveland Foodbank, which equates to more than 700,000 meals distributed to those in need in Northeastern Ohio. This year’s totals hope to be even bigger and help even more people!
