The annual Burger Battle will return on Aug. 26.
Delaware chefs will compete for Critic’s Choice, Alternative Burger, and People’s Choice awards.
Proceeds from the all-volunteer event will benefit two Delaware nonprofits: Ministry of Caring’s Emmanuel Dining Room, which meets the immediate needs of Wilmington’s hungry, and the ProStart Program of the Delaware Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, a curriculum that provides real-life experience opportunities and builds practical skills for high school students.
In its first five years, the Delaware Burger Battle served more than 16,000 burgers and 3,000 people, generating more than $37,000 for Delaware nonprofits.
The 2017 Delaware Burger Battle begins at noon on Saturday, Aug. 26 on the grounds of the Cauffiel House, 1016 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington.
Any restaurant interested in entering the Burger Battle arena can contact JulieAnne Cross at email@example.com.
