Dine-N-Dash 2018: José Andrés' Annual Culinary Event Benefits World Central Kitchen
Explore 37 Top DC Restaurants, While Providing Aid to Puerto Rico
On Wednesday, June 6, 37 of DC’s best restaurants will participate in José Andrés’ annual summer culinary event, Dine N' Dash benefiting World Central Kitchen , a nonprofit of chefs creating smart solutions to hunger and poverty across the globe. For one night, guests can leave their wallets at home and enjoy endless food and drink in the dine-worthy Penn Quarter and 14th Street neighborhoods.
For $150 (general admission) to $400 (VIP), guests can enjoy up to eight dishes and four drinks from each participating restaurant with no lines, no waiting, and no exchanging of money. Just hop on the free pedicabs, head to one of the participating restaurants and chow down! VIP ticket holders will have the opportunity to join José at the VIP after party starting at 9pm.
Founded by Andrés in 2010, World Central Kitchen has paved the way among chefs for philanthropic endeavors first offering aid following the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Haiti; and later in 2017, assisting in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, then immediately following with its largest relief effort to date, feeding more than 3.5 million victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Since arriving to the devastated island in September 2017, World Central Kitchen became the largest hot-meal emergency feeding operation on the island, with the help of dozens of chefs and more than 20,000 volunteers under the #ChefsForPuertoRico movement.
So, grab your tickets HERE, while you still can, and join me for the Summer's hottest culinary event with James Beard's 2018 Humanitarian of the Year, José Andrés!
