NFL FOOTBALL / SUPER BOWL

Taste of the NFL to Raise Funds for Charity
by Jason Rzucidlo
AmericaJR@AmericaJR.com

 

 

The 15th Annual Taste of the NFL will be held on February 4th at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi, MI. There will be NFL players from past and present, nationally-known chefs and thousands of fans will be in attendance. It is being called the "Party with a Purpose."

The Taste of the NFL is one of the few NFL-sanctioned events that are actually open to the public. Many NFL events are private parties. You can expect to see five-star cuisine and wine along with live entertainment. All funds that are raised will benefit America's Second Harvest to end hunger and affect the poor in Detroit. In Detroit, the local relief agency that will benefit from the Taste of the NFL will be the Gleaners Community Food Bank and Forgotten Harvest.

Brian Polcyn of the Five Lakes Grill in Milford, MI will represent the Detroit Lions. He will be serving up lobster and Foi Gras Sausage over Braised Leeks and White Truffle Oil. Each NFL team will have a chef and an NFL player or alumni to pass out the fine cuisine and give autographs.

To represent the Pittsburgh Steelers will be Greg Alauzen of Event. He will be serving up Leg of Elysian Fields Farm Lamb Stew of White Bean and Root Vegetables. To represent the Seattle Seahawks wil lbe John Howie of Seastar Restaurant and Raw Bar. He will be serving up Sizzling Dungeness Crab Cakes.

Wayne Kostroski is the founder and executive director of the Taste of NFL. "Detroit has been extremely generous in its donations to the victims of recent national disasters." He adds, "But with Detroit listed as the poorest city in America, there are many hungry residents right here that need assistance. Taste of the NFL is proud to help raise awareness and funds to support Detroit and extend those benefits to other food banks across the country."

The charity event started back in 1992. Since then, the Taste of the NFL has raised more than $5.7 million. Each of the 32 NFL teams will be accompanied by an all-star chef and an alumni or current player from that team who will serve the gourmet dishes and give autographs to all of the fans. The goal is to raise $1 million on this special night.

Funds will be raised from ticket sales, auction proceeds and sponsorships. Additional funds will be raised from the sale of the "Taste of the NFL Restaurant Guide." There you'll find recipes of the cuisine that will be served as well as biographies of the players and chefs themselves. You can purchase a restaurant guide by calling (952) 835-7621.
