It's time, Green & White fans, to prepare to awaken your Taste buds.
The ninth annual New York Jets Taste of the NFL Benefit presented by A&P and MasterCard is in the planning stages, and before you know it, the big night will be upon us. This year's event will be Thursday, May 31, and again it will be held in the elegant, spacious Cipriani Wall Street.
Your hosts for the night will be center Nick Mangold and cornerback Darrelle Revis, both Pro Bowlers. If that lineup sounds familiar, it's because the duo are in their fifth year of hosting this charity event to help fight hunger.
They will be joined by Jets teammates, coaches, alumni and Jets Flight Crew members — and you. Join them for an unforgettable affair in New York City. Meet and mingle with the team, savor exquisite cuisines from New York's and New Jersey's finest restaurants, taste fine wine and bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
The goal for the evening remains the same: to team up with the New York Jets and fight hunger in your community. The last Taste in 2010, attended by more than 25 players, raised a record of more than $200,000.
So make your plans now to attend the gala at Cipriani, located at 55 Wall Street. Tickets for the VIP Hour, beginning at 6 p.m., are $425 and tickets for general admission, beginning at 7 p.m., are $275. For more information or to purchase tickets, visitnewyorkjets.com/taste.
