Valley slider lovers will unite this November to sample some of the most unique and tasty sliders in town–and all for a good cause.
The Slider Throwdown will take place at Kierland Commons on Sunday, November 13, 2016 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., where local food trucks will compete for the title of Best Slider. Food trucks such as Phil the Grill, Aioli Burger, Spice it Up, Buzz N Bee, Butta Burger, One True Love and more will give attendees the opportunity to taste their most delicious sliders. The sliders will be judged by local “slider experts” as well as by the attendees via their People’s Choice votes.
Just $25 includes admission into the event and one slider from each participating food truck. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation (AFFCF).
The AFFCF is dedicated to giving children in foster care back their childhood. The organization has awarded more than $5.7 million to 26,000 children in foster care — and counting — in the state. Kris Jacober, Director of the AFFCF says, “We help these children through difficult circumstances by providing them with resources and allowing them to take part in enjoyable activities that promote self-esteem.”
However, there are still more than 18,000 children in foster care in the state that need the community’s help. And Valley residents can do their part, while having a great time and sampling delicious eats, by simply purchasing a ticket to the 2016 Slider Throwdown at https://fs25.formsite.com/AFFCF/form18/index.html.
