Stir It 28 - A Food Blogger Benefit for Haiti Taking Place In Three Cities on Februrary 21st!

We're still in the planning stages, but I wanted to let the cat out of the bag so you can mark your calendars for this event!

On Sunday, February 21st, Stir It 28 will host fundraisers for Haiti that will be held on the same day in several different cities (right now Los Angeles, Atlanta and Chicago), featuring food and drinks donated by chefs, restaurants, home cooks and food bloggers.  The fabulous Chrystal of Duo Dishes  is organizing the Los Angeles portion of the fundraiser where I'll be donating my services (menu to be announced!).  So this would be a great night to support a good cause and chow down on my sure to be delicious grub at the same time. 

If you can't make the event, as the moniker suggests, there are plenty of other ways to give all 28 days of February than just this fundraiser (just click here).

Here are the event details as they stand:
Each one of us will be hosting a food fundraising event on Sunday, February 21st in our respective cities–Los Angeles, Atlanta and Chicago. We’re asking chefs, restaurants, home cooks and food bloggers to participate by donating 2-3 dishes that will feed 15-20 people each. The events will be open to the public with advanced tickets or limited ticket sales at the door. You can tell your friends and colleagues to purchase tickets from Bren or Courtney’s blogs. Click the image that says “Purchase Tickets For STIR IT 28 Culinary Event-Feb. 21st”. Be sure to indicate the city’s event that you plan to attend. Of course, if you are part of the volunteer team (that includes making food or working the event), you will not have to purchase a ticket.
