The tenth annual Walgreens Gridiron Grill-Off Food, Wine & Music Festival South Florida’s highly anticipated high-end culinary event returned at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater, with delicious offerings from the region’s top culinary talent, along with a variety of specialty cocktails, fine wine and craft beer. South Florida’s favorite food, wine, sports and entertainment event is a high end culinary “competition for a cause” that pairs NFL legends with the best of the best chefs in South Florida.
Twenty-two of the best of the best chefs were paired up with 22 Miami Dolphin’s legends including O.J. McDuffie, Zach Thomas, Mercury Morris, Jim Kiick, Channing Crowder, and the Marks Brothers (Mark Duper & Mark Clayton). Event attendees could also get in on the action at the Toyota Cornhole Stadium, and competing to attempt to beat John Offerdahl’s score in the Celebrity Cornhole Challenge.
All net proceeds from the Walgreens Gridiron Grill-Off Food, Wine & Music Festival will benefit the Offerdahl’s Hand-Off Foundation’s mission to “Feed the Needs of Those in Crisis” through direct donations to the Offerdahl’s Hand-Off Foundation Scholarship Fund at Broward College and to Taste of the NFL’s Kick Hunger Challenge, a national initiative which matches donations by the Gridiron Grill-Off to support Feeding South Florida, a hunger relief organization that serves 25% of Florida’s food insecure population.
