The Chow Down!

A Foodie Gala To Benefit RARF!

October 2, 2023, at The Gathering, Armature Works, Tampa, Florida!

The Chow Down! is a game-changing fundraiser hosted by NFL veteran Defensive Back Logan Ryan and his wife, Ashley Ryan. All proceeds support RARF’s continued critical support to shelters and rescues, positively impacting the lives of pets and people in communities nationwide.

The Chow Down! is a food-lovers event that hosts an appetizer competition featuring local restaurants and food trucks. Each “signature dish” is judged by a panel of celebrities who select the competition’s “Champion” as well as the “Crowd Pleaser” award, chosen by all our discerning guests. At the end of the evening, The Chow Down! 2023 Champion will take home the “Dog-Bardi Trophy,” a custom replica of the NFL’s Lombardi Trophy.

This spectacular evening kicks off with a delicious VIP Hour, offering a top-shelf open bar, specialty liquor tasting, grazing table, and star-studded meet-and-greets. The main event immediately follows with a house open bar, signature cocktail, amazing food from local culinary establishments, a silent auction, and a live auction component.
