2018 will host the first annual Top Chef Harrisonburg even–a friendly competition amongst seven Chefs from local Harrisonburg restaurants–on Saturday, March 24 from 6:00-10:00 pm at the Bluestone Vineyard.
The evening will feature Bluestone Vineyard wine, live entertainment by Ben Kunkle from The Hackens Boys, and door prizes. The event will be emceed by WHSV News Anchor, Kyle Rogers.
All of the ticket proceeds and sponsorship fees that we charge businesses to participate will go directly to Blue Ridge CASA. Blue Ridge CASA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency which trains community volunteers to advocate for local children who have been abused or neglected. The proceeds will provide funding for a full-time advocate manager for the Harrisonburg-Rockingham area. This staff person will recruit, train, and supervise the volunteer advocates. The advocates work directly for Judge O’Donnell in the Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court of Harrisonburg & Rockingham County.
At each Chef station, two hors d’oeuvre style dishes will be provided. To keep a level playing field, one item is required to be vegetarian and one item is required to be a protein.
The winning Chef will receive the title of “Top Chef Harrisonburg”and a top of the line Chef’s knife.
Tickets are on sale now and are $60 per person. These include the food from the competing Chefs and 2 drink tickets. Ticket prices will increase to $75 Friday, March 9. Guests are asked to wear cocktail attire.
