Last Chance at Chefs for Farmers Tickets! *Contest

06_2012_05_CFF-152by Steven Doyle

What a long strange trip its been. Not many years ago Iris Midler and Matt McCallister started their five-star festival that is centered on the the Dallas dining scene with a long table event held out in a field of a local farm just outside the Dallas city limits on the farm of Marie Tedei, Eden’s Organic Farm. This is the event that event they called Chefs for Farmers. From there this grew into a festival of fun of fantastic proportions that will culminate this October 25th at Lee Park where 1000’s of revelers will enjoy a plethora of chef stations paired with fine wines and spirits. We hear that this year there will even be a special biscuit station as well as an oyster lounge. All this to benefit our local farming community, raising an expected $25,000 for charity. 

The tickets for this even have been on sale, and are actually just about sold out. However, we were able to snag a pair for a lucky couple to join us this Sunday at Lee Park. If you wish to guarantee your ticket buy it now! If you are feeling lucky enter by making a comment below. We will select one person for two tickets at random tomorrow afternoon (Thursday, October 22nd).

This is going to be one heck of a shindig.
