VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- While many football fans feast on hot dogs and beer during tailgating season, the Farm Fresh Charitable Foundation is hosting an upscale tailgating event that will benefit local charities and victims of Hurricane Katrina. The Ultimate Farm Fresh Tailgate Gala will take place Friday, Oct. 21 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in Olde Towne Portsmouth.
The Ultimate Tailgate Gala will feature bountiful gourmet food stations, wine tastings, grilling and cooking demonstrations on the private patio, casino games, interactive exhibits, sports theater, a world-class silent auction, and live music. CBS television personality Mr. Food will sign copies of his latest book, "Dinner on the Double."
