Tar River Chefs Showcase

The Tar River Chefs Showcase is a signature fundraiser for United Way Tar River Region. On Thursday, July 21, 2022, from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM, at Nash Community College’s Brown Auditorium, our finest local restaurants/ venues, and their chefs will provide culinary tastings for participants to enjoy. New this year, venues will pair their foods with local craft breweries as this event will showcase our growing culinary scene around the twin counties.

Event-goers will enjoy the tastings and have a chance to vote on “The Top Chef/ Venue” and “Best Brew”. Local celebrities will host the event, and we will have an event booklet promoting the venues and other event details. We will have a live auction showcasing 5-7 larger packages with auctioneer Parker Phillips. A silent auction will also be available, mainly focusing on food and cooking items.  Live music will play throughout the evening.

VIP RECEPTION 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM –  includes adult beverages and appetizers, as well as door prizes and gifts on NCC's romantic Tuscan patio. Event-goers will enjoy this reception in addition to the Main Event.
