A little something for those that like food (and poker!) and supporting a good cause.
The 13th annual charity event, Chance for Life, comes to the MGM National Harbor on March 10th.
The event will feature a curated Taste Experience (and a poker tournament).
We’re more interested in the Taste Experience, which will be created by nine local and celebrity chefs of the Washington area. Afterwards there will be live performances, dancing and a ‘surprise’ celebrity. Of course, your party DJ will be DJ Skribble.
Tickets may appear on the pricey side, but you can’t put a price tag on food fun! Plus it’s a charity event, for Chance for Life presented by The Boeing Company, which benefits childhood cancer research.
Since its founding in 2005, Chance for Life has raised more than $2.7 million for pediatric cancer research, grossing more than $750,000 in 2017 alone. Sponsors of this year’s event include Facebook, GEICO, United Bank, Comcast Sportsnet, Enterprise Holdings, National Capital Bank, The Meltzer Group and more. Tim Keating, Senior Vice President or Government Operations for Boeing, will serve as Chairman of the event.
Some of the local chefs you will find at The Chance for Life:
* Kyle Bailey, The Salt Line
* Michael Friedman, Red Hen and All-Purpose
* Danny Lee and Scott Drewno, Mandu and ChiKo
* Katsuya Fukushima, Daikaya
* Victor Albisu, Del Campo and Taco Bamba
* Gina Chersevani, Buffalo & Bergen
* Haidar Karoum, Chloe
I’d say that’s a pretty good list. Which reminds me, I need to try the new Chloe restaurant. Also, Taylor Gourmet co-founder Casey Patten will serve as the culinary chair for the event.

Tickets are $250. The experience starts at 6:30pm and goes until, well you decide!
