Cleveland’s Finest Hors d’Oeuvre Contest to benefit Our Lady of the Wayside is one of my favorite annual fundraisers. I love a good appetizer and I love any reason to be at Progressive Field! And this year is sure to be even bigger and better, as the event celebrates its 25th Anniversary!
Cleveland’s Finest creates a friendly chef competition between some of Cleveland’s best restaurants for who will be crowned as having the Finest Hors d’Oeuvre. The winners are voted on by attendees, who are the real winners, since we get to eat all the delicious appetizers!
The event takes place on Thursday, April 11 at the Terrace Club at Progressive Field. Participating restaurants include Corleone’s Ristorante and Bar, Cleveland Chop, Punch Bowl Social, Tartine Bistro, Mallorca Restaurant, and more.
Plus, there will be desserts from Cupcake Cravings, Simply Michele’s, and Simply Elegant Catering; wine tastes; beer samples from Saucy Brew Works; live music; hosts Tim Richards, Jen Toohey, and Desiray Cross from Star 102; a silent auction with awesome prizes; and lots more foodie fun!
Tickets are $80 and all proceeds benefit Our Lady of the Wayside’s mission of supporting over 900 children and adults with developmental disabilities through a wide range of services from transportation to housing to employment.
