Unique Celebrity Chef and Art Event
Benefits DC’s Homeless Neighbors
Washington, D.C. – On Thursday, October 27, 2016, from 7:00 to 10:00 pm, Central Union Mission will host its second annual HeArt & Sole event with a goal of providing one million meals for hungry, hurting and homeless neighbors through the winter. At Dock5 at Union Market, Hell’s Kitchen celebrity Chef Rock Harper and 30 of his chef friends will be cooking gourmet tastes inspired by their favorite “sole.”
SugaChef Padua Player is presenting the Extreme Sweets Showcase, a good-natured contest between two young Food Network stars Alex Portis and Matthew Merril. Other special guests include radio host Sunni of “Sunni in the City,” Real Housewives of Potomac star Robyn Dixon, ABC7’s Michelle Marsh and former NBA star and activist Etan Thomas.
Besides creative tasting plates and signature cocktails, guests will enjoy live music by Buzzard Point Caucus, live paintings created on site by fine artists and live and silent auctions featuring exclusive gifts and experiences, including tickets to Hamilton.
Each ticket purchased will help reach the Mission’s goal of feeding and caring for one million souls this winter. Last year, over 400 people attended wearing their favorite “soles” while donating money to help with their neighbors in need.
Media is invited to attend. RSVP requested.
