The lineup includes Steve Ballas of Steve Snappin' Dogs; Robert Bogart of Elway's Downtown; Michael Bortz of City Bakery; Jamey Fader of Lola; Troy Guard of TAG; Jennifer Jasinski of Rioja; Simon Purvis of EDGE; Paul Reilly (formerly of Encore); Matt Selby and Brandon Biederman of Vesta Dipping Grill; Goose Sorensen of Solera; Darrel Truett of Barolo Grill; Tyler Wiard and Aniedra Nichols of Elway's Cherry Creek; Elise Wiggins of Panzano and Sean Yontz of El Diablo.
Guests can purchase "poker chips," with which they can vote for their favorite sliders and sides. Chips range from $5 to $100, and will help raise additional funds for the Denver Health Foundation. There will also be live R&B from Chris Daniels & the Kings.
