Local restaurant group, Jaguars host benefit to kick hunger

An empty pantry is no fun at any time, but it seems so much worse during the holidays. When the pantry itself is gone due to hurricane damage, the prospects of a happy holiday are bleak. Thanks to Black Sheep Restaurant Group and the Jaguars Foundation, families in need in Jacksonville and Houston had prospects for a brighter Christmas.

Supporting the Jaguars Foundation’s hunger relief programs, the Taste of the NFL’s Kick Hunger Challenge was a wine dinner held Dec. 11, which this year raised money for Jacksonville and Houston food banks.

Honorary Chairs for the formal event were Nancy and Gary Chartrand. Chefs included Jonathan Insetta, Waylon Rivers, Michael McKinney, and Kerri Rogers, from Black Sheep Restaurant Group, who teamed up with Gallo Wine Group, Elior North America Chef Chris Caracciolo, Delaware North Chef Sean Kinoshita, and special guest Chef Jon Buchanan from Third Coast Restaurant, Houston, Texas for a special evening which included champagne and appetizers, a formal dinner, and a decadent dessert bar at the U.S. Assure West Club in EverBank Field.
