Attendees and a three-judge panel vote for their favorite dishes.

VIP Tickets are $85 per person and also include a ticket to the First Look VIP Reception, sponsored by Social House Vodka, from 5:30p-6:30p, as well as an open bar throughout the event with select beer, wine and liquor.

The First Look Reception, sponsored by Social House Vodka, is your opportunity to see the chefs that will be competing in the Beach Food Pantry's 6th Annual Holiday Chef's Challenge in the heat of the battle! This more intimate Reception is held during the 60-minutes the chefs have to prepare a dish using ingredients commonly distributed to our clients.

While you are watching the chefs perfect their art, you'll also get to enjoy special cocktails utilizing NC's #1 Craft Vodka, Social House. Their vodka is made from corn, so it's gluten-free!
