Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres

Please join us on September 19, 2018 for the 32nd annual Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres event!

Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres is an exciting “non-gala” style event that encourages guests to “come as you are” after work, schmooze with some of Windsor’s best food and beverage establishments, while enjoying creative cuisine, drinks, and networking!

Food participants will battle it out in this exciting competition for their chance to win two awards!  Guests will have a chance to be food critics and vote for their favourites to win the “People’s Choice Award”, while a panel of expert judges will choose the “Critic’s Choice Award” winners.  Guests will also enjoy bidding on silent auction items, entering the raffle, and live music.

Don’t miss your chance to be a food critic, come on out and vote for your favourite!

All funds raised support the 7 youth mentoring programs at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex which currently provides services to over 800 children in our community.

Tickets are only $95 each (group tickets available). Price includes tastings from all food and drink participants and dessert.
