LOGAN RYAN PRESENTS...
THE CHOW DOWN!
What is The Chow Down?
The Chow Down! is a brand-new community fundraiser hosted by Logan Ryan of the Tennessee Titans. This “foodie” event will host up to 16 appetizer-type stations featuring signature dishes from some of Nashville's top restaurants and catering companies.
The Chow Down! is helping to showcase the many diverse restaurants and catering companies throughout Tennessee; all proceeds will go to The Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation to continue our efforts in helping homeless animals.
How is this a competition?
Each appetizer station is judged by a panel of celebrities including Marcus Mariota, Kevin Byard and Ben Jones of the Tennessee Titans along with Cathy Bissell of Bissell Pet Foundation and dancer, actress and singer Mayte Garcia. The Chow Down Champion will take home the first ever “Dog-bardi Trophy,” a custom replica of the NFL’s Lombardi Trophy.
YOU ARE A JUDGE TOO! Each ticket holder will receive a voting paw print to choose their favorite dish of the night and will be awarded the nights "Crowd Pleaser".
Besides food, what else is happening?
The Chow Down! boasts two pretty cool emcee's! Logan Ryan will be emceeing along side Jonathan Hutton, the voice of the Titans and Game-day Host of the Titans Radio Network on 104.5 The Zone! Logan and Jonathan will be your emcee-extraordinars for the nights activities and will be auctioning off some insanely cool stuff during the live auction! Stay tuned for a preview of our silent auction, packed with autographed sports memorabilia, sports tickets, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and so much more! Can't attend the event?
