Event description

Description

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Valley Vine & Harvest Throwdown, we're bringing back the winning chefs from the past decade to defend their title. Each chef prepares a mini-entrée, which is expertly paired with fine wine for guests to experience. Guests then vote for their top choice, and the chef with the most votes receives the honor of Top Chef of the Valley. Guests also have the opportunity to bid on unique live and silent auction items or win a bottle of wine from the wine wall. Tickets are transferable, but are not refundable. This event is 21+

All proceeds of these events benefit Canvas Health, a local nonprofit providing services to people struggling with mental illness, substance use, crisis, unstable housing, and trauma. Canvas Health also operates Minnesota’s suicide prevention phone line. Make a donation to Canvas Health (this will open in a new window)
