Taste of the NFL




Tackling Hunger
Bengals, bites and auctions…oh my! Join us for the 12th Annual Taste of the NFL hosted by the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, June 11 at Paul Brown Stadium.


Who Dey Nation

This year, we are honored to welcome Bengals Running Back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, aka “The Law Firm,” as one of our hosts for the event.  He will be joined by several other Cincinnati Bengals players, coaches, alums and Ben-Gals cheerleaders. Get up-close-and-personal with some of your favorite players. Snap photos, get a few autographs, and show your Who Dey spirit!


The Best Bites In Town? You Bet!

Chef Stephen Williams, of Bouquet, will serve as Taste of the NFL co-host and will be joined by some of the best restaurants in town! Enjoy dinner-by-the-bite from of Tri-State’s favorite restaurants, including: Jean Robert’s Table, Holtman’s Donuts, Jag’s Steak and Seafood, Nuvo at Greenup, SALAZAR and Senate.

Going Once, Going Twice…

Tickets for the event are $150. The evening will include a silent auction of sports-themed items, a live auction of dinners and other experiences with players and coaches, and a raffle featuring a “20 Nights Out” gift pack of twenty $100 gift certificates to some of Cincinnati’s top restaurants. Bengals Color Analyst Dave Lapham and Local 12 Sports Director Brad Johansen will once again join us as our emcees and auctioneers.


Making a Difference

All Taste of the NFL proceeds benefit the Freestore Foodbank and our efforts to serve the community. Your generosity through the 2013 Taste of the NFL helped us raise nearly $125,000, the equivalent of 375,000 meals, to help give hope to those who need it most.
