In case you haven't heard, the Taste of the NFL is coming to Tampa and is bigger and better than ever. Here's just a little bit of background -
The Super Bowl came to Minneapolis in 1992. While there was certainly no shortage of events, activities, and festivities from which to choose, one event stood out above them all. And it is still going…
Taste of the NFL was born at Super Bowl XXVI. The Party with a Purpose® was launched through the hard work and dedication of hundreds of volunteers. Thirty-two of the finest chefs from around the country, one from each NFL city, served up their specialties alongside an alumni player from each of the NFL teams. All volunteer, all heart. The sold-out event that year raised $90,000, with all of the proceeds going to local and national hunger organizations.
It was the highest net fundraiser at Super Bowl XXVI. For each of the last fifteen years, Taste of the NFL has been presented on the eve of the Super Bowl in each of the Super Bowl cities, continuing the Minnesota-born tradition. More than $6 million has been raised and distributed to hunger-relief groups since 1992. In Houston alone, the event raised a record $820,000 donation for the cause in one night, and made it possible for Taste of the NFL donations to be made to America’s Second Harvest food banks in each of the NFL cities in the name of that city’s NFL team.
Now, as for Tampa Bay area events, this is as good as it gets, and all for a good cause! Head over to www.TasteoftheNFL.com to get all of the details...
