The Taste of the Nation, arguably one of Denver's best local food soirees, gets under way Sunday, October 14, at Mile High Station, where more than thirty restaurants, food carts and trucks, along with numerous mixologists, will gather to cook, mix and muddle and raise funds for the nonprofit, whose mission it is to ensure that no child goes hungry.
Tickets the benefit, which cost $75 each, are still available, but if you entered our contest, wherein we asked Cafe Society readers to guess how much money the Taste of the Nation has raised in Colorado since its inception in 1988, then you and a guest might be going for free.
Did you win? Flip the page to find out.
The total amount raised is $2,579,163.00, and the person who came the closest -- and who wins the tickets -- is Steveville, who guessed $2,000,000.00.
Steveville, we'll send you an e-mail with instructions on how you can claim your prize.
Thanks for entering, and we'll see you in nine days!
