Giveaway // Red + White on Thursday Night

Chad and I have had the pleasure and honor of attending one of Akron’s most anticipated events, Red and White on Thursday Night, for the last 5+ years in a row!

In fact, it’s the one event of the year that I absolutely refuse to miss. We went just 5 days after Remy Bea was born last year! I wouldn’t miss it for the world!

Thankfully, this year I won’t be wearing Miss Bea! But last year she came with us — and she was a HIT!

The 20th Anniversary of Red and White on Thursday Night is being held on Thursday, January 26th, at Quaker Station at the University of Akron.

We will indulge in an incredible evening of fine wines from around the world and amazing local cuisine from top chefs and the best restaurants in the region — including a personal appearance from local celebrity chef and James Beard nominee, Dante Boccuzzi!

The event, voted one of the best in Akron by AkronLife Magazine, is expected to raise more than $82,000. All proceeds support critical local Arthritis Foundation initiatives including advocacy and access, help and support, and research.

Arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability and affects more than 50 million Americans and nearly 300,000 children. In Northeastern Ohio, nearly 1.3 million people of all ages have been diagnosed with arthritis. More than 108,000 of those are Summit County residents, according to 2013 figures.

Participating restaurants include: Chef Dante Boccuzzi of DBA, BOMBA Tacos and Rum, Chowder House Cafe, Nuevo Modern Mexican & Tequila Bar, Melt Bar and Grilled, and more!

The silent auction is incredible. Wine baskets, tickets to local events, and memberships to everything under the sun! Last year I was so busy running from table to table that I didn’t have any time to bid on any auction items, but this year I’m absolutely ready for it! I have big plans to bid on one of the kid-friendly items!

I hope that you can join me in supporting the Arthritis Foundation at this incredible event. General Admission tickets are $85 and VIP tickets are $125. VIP tickets include exclusive tastings from Chef Dante Boccuzzi, sweet treats from The West Side Bakery, spa services, high-end wines. All tickets can be purchased here.

In the meantime, you can enter to win TWO GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS using the Rafflecopter widget below! Please only enter if you’re local and able to attend on 1/26/17 from 5:30 – 9:00 PM.

I’m trying to get into wine, but I’m not quite there yet. I like whatever’s in the bottle. 😛 My favorite beer is good old Dortmunder!

I like sparkling wine and white wine,

That’s a really hard question to answer – there are SO many good ones! For any every day wine, I really love the Apothic Dark – it’s such a great deal!

My favorite beer this holiday season was Blue Moon’s Cappuccino and Oatmeal, and my favorite wine lately is Cooper and Thief’s red wine blend that is aged in bourbon whiskey barrels…yum!
