Gather ‘Round is a cooking competition featuring local chefs preparing organic produce from the Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) urban agriculture project, DeLaney Community Farm.

Join DUG for a lively competition between chefs Jeremy Kittelson from Ophelia’s, Justin Hall from Luca, and Jesse Moore from Ace Eat Serve as they prepare and present both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes featuring organic produce from DUG’s DeLaney Community Farm.

The competition is being designed by Dan Long and Marley Hodgson of MAD Greens, who will collect a panel of judges representing the best of Denver’s local food scene.

Come enjoy a meal, network, and learn more about DUG activities and locally grown ingredients.

Gather ‘Round takes place on October 13, 2016, 6-9pm, at the Horse Barn, located at 1031 33rd Street, Denver CO.

The evening includes a silent auction for items including: two tickets and backstage experience to an AEG Red Rocks show, private catering for 10 from Three Tomatoes Catering, and a romantic date night at the Queen Anne Bed & Breakfast.

Music will be local too, as Denver-area musician Rob Drabkin is performing.

Gather ‘Round tickets range from $100 “Sugar Pumpkin” tickets (single tickets) to $500 “Acorn” tickets (table for four). Sponsorships are also available, ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. All proceeds from this event will benefit new DUG gardens over the next year.
