The “party with a purpose” will be Saturday, Jan. 31, at WestWorld of Scottsdale, raising money and awareness for hunger through a star-studded culinary event on the eve of the Super Bowl, according to a press release.

Top chefs and cuisine from around the country will be joined by celebrities, NFL players and legends, live music, and more, the release states.

Individual tickets are $700. Celebrating its 24th year, proceeds benefit food banks in each NFL city, and there is an added emphasis placed on Arizona.

Chef and co-owner Arthur Craft, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, will serve Tostadas de Cabrito, featuring smoked green chile goat, queso fresco, heirloom pico de gallo and shredded cabbage on a crisp tortilla.

Four Peaks was selected after being one of the top Valley restaurants in fundraising for St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.

Four Peaks through December highlighted a special menu item for lunch and dinner along with a featured craft beer cocktail.  One dollar from every special ordered was donated to the cause.

“We’re honored to be part of the Taste of the NFL event,” said Greg Ross of Four Peaks. “Food banks play such an important role in our community and unfortunately, the need continues to grow.  Our employees want to be a part of the solution.”

Though the official fundraising period is over, Four Peaks will continue to raise money this month by raffling off a Four Peaks-wrapped “Kegerator.” Raffle tickets are available at both brew pubs as well as for purchase online at www.fourpeaks.com.
