Two of Denver's most prominent lawyers, former Governor and Denver District Attorney Bill Ritter and current Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey will face each other ...in the kitchen for a good cause. The inaugural "Battle of the Chefs" event, supporting Project PAVE, will feature the two powerhouse attorneys along with their wives Jeannie Ritter and Maggie Morrisey.
The throw-down, emceed by Chris Parente, host of The Everyday Show, will take place on Thursday, October 27 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Denver Athletic Club (1325 Glenarm Place). The teams will have to cook their favorite Italian-themed dish and will be subjected to the scrutiny of a professional panel and that of the guests who will choose a crowd favorite. The judges include chefs Scott Parker (The Buffalo Restaurant) and Cade Beerman (Big Red F Group) and Sarto's owner Taylor Swallow, as well as Eater editor Andra Zeppelin.
Money raised will support Project PAVE's work to end relationship violence in our community. Each year, PAVE provides free therapy, family support services and violence prevention education programming to more than 3,500 young people, parents and community members.
Tickets, which start at $100, can be purchased online.
