This Sunday night at the 9:30 Club, DC Central Kitchen is hosting a fundraiser to help raise their operating budget for 2010. The organization’s mission is to use food to strengthen bodies, empower minds and build communities, something that everyone here in town can get along with. More than just a shelter, DC Central Kitchen runs a culinary job training program where less fortunate residents can get the job training they need to work in the city’s amazing kitchens.
DC Central Kitchen has teamed up with the 9:30 club to showcase some of the city’s best food and its best DJs to combine into a must-go event to help the community. 9:30 club will be open both inside and out, for the first time in its history as part of the event, with food sponsors like BGR, Church Key, CommonWealth Gastropub, Cork, EatBar, Masa 14 and Sâuçá.
Tickets are just $30 and include all you can taste, and all you can dance. Will Eastman, Fatback, U.S. Royalty, Bluebrain, Midnight Kids and Beautiful Swimmers will all be performing as part of the benefit, as well.
Better yet, we’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away right here on the blog. Tell us what you’re excited to eat, and why you want to help DC Central Kitchen below and you’ll be in the running for one of the pairs of tickets. We’ll close this all up Wednesday at noon and give out the tickets.
