Proceeds from this event will help fund the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's (CCFA) efforts to raise critical research dollars. Last year, nearly 160 guests attended this event and we expect even more this year to help us with our mission to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the lives of children and adults affected by these diseases.

NEW this year! Martini Tasting! In addition to wine and beer, sample a selection of specialty martinis.

After the event, join us at Bull & Bear for the after-party where Chopping Block guests will receive a complimentary drink.  

This is a sold out event each year and tickets sell fast!
