27 chefs, 50,000 lbs. of chopped meat, 3,000 guests, 1 year of planning, and Burger Bash NYC 2013 was a huge success. This event is part of the Food Network NYC Wine & Food Festival that in five years has raised well over $6 million for charities that feed the homeless. We worked the beefy event, and relished a job well done (meat pun)!
Congratulations to Chefs Paul Denamiel, Josh Capon & Guy Fieri for winning Burger Bash at the 2013 Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival, hosted by Rachael Ray, on Friday night at Pier 92 in Manhattan!
We are so proud to have volunteered at this event and to witness the true meaning of giving back. $1 million dollars was raised throughout the 4-day festival with the proceeds donated to the Food Bank For New York City & Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign.
We'll be uploading our photos and behind-the-scene stories of our adventures at the festival in future posts. Stay tuned!
