It's one of the area's most fabulous food events. The Iron Event brings together twenty of the regions best chefs to compete. The food is judged by the guests and the chef's win nice prizes.

It was started by former chef Daniel Tracy who in 2010 was diagnosed with ALS. Chef's like Jeffery Cooke of Osteria 166 cheerfully donate their time and talent to the Iron Event. He says "I think all of us have a soft spot in our heart for Dan and the rest of us would want to come together when one of us fell down."

In Dan Tracy's words "It's estimated that people with ALS will require $250,000 to $350,000 a year to prolong their survival time. That's why with the help of dozens of volunteers I have staged very successful fund raising events. I am in the process of planning another bigger, better one for Monday September 12th, all from my small desk inside my room at a nursing home, despite not being able to move or talk very much."

The even will take place at the Hotel Lafayette. Tickets and info can be found at www.theironevent.org
