For the 3rd time in its 49-year history, the Phoenix area will be the hosting the Super Bowl: Super Bowl XLIX is scheduled for Feburary 1, 2015 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. For the last 23 years, on the eve of the Super Bowl, The Taste of the NFL – Party with a Purpose® charity event has been held in the host city. The event this year will be held at WestWorld in Scottsdale.
Established in 1992, The Taste of the NFL is a 501c3 organization whose mission is to “kick hunger.” The organization has raised over $22 million since its inception. The Super Bowl Taste of the NFL – Party with a Purpose® is the organization’s biggest event of the year.
The event pairs 35+ celebrity chefs from NFL cities preparing a signature dish and wine pairings for guests to sample. At each food station, an NFL player from that city will also be seated. Guests are welcome to obtain autographs and photos with the chefs and players.
There will also be a silent auction, as well as an opportunity to purchase merchandise. The evening will conclude with live entertainment from a nationally-acclaimed band or artist.
The net proceeds raised at the event go to food banks in each of the NFL cities with an emphasis on the food bank of the Super Bowl host city. The Arizona Cardinals have selected St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance and Vista Del Camino Food Bank.
The Cardinal’s celebrity chef this year will be Beau MacMillan of Elements at Sanctuary on Camelback. The player will be Roger Wehrli, first round draft pick in 1969 and 2007 Hall of Fame Inductee.
This is just one of the events taking place in Scottsdale as a result of the more than 1,000,000 visitors who will descend upon our area during the Pro Bowl, Super Bowl and Waste Management Phoenix Open, all taking place between the end of January and the middle of February, 2015.
