The outpouring of national support for those affected by Superstorm Sandy continues here in Portland. Following benefit plans from Riffle NW, PaaDee, and Teardrop Lounge, an all-star lineup of PDX chefs will come together for a special dinner to benefit Food Bank for New York City, the leading hunger relief organization of NYC. 

On Monday, November 19th, Naomi Pomeroy of Beast, Jason French of Ned Ludd, and Aaron Barnett of St. Jack will host a six-course benefit dinner with wine and cocktail pairings at Beast, with one seating at 7 pm. Each chef will prepare two courses, St. Jack pastry chef Alissa Rozos will provide dessert, Steve Jones will donate cheese, local wineries will bring the vino, and St. Jack barman Kyle Webster will craft a special cocktail for the evening. 

100 percent of the proceeds from the $250 per person ticket will aid Superstorm Sandy relief. Reservations are available through the Beast website. Looking for more ways to help? Here are some more options.
