City Harvest is hosting the 18th annual Bid Against Hunger, a restaurant tasting and auction, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

Guests attending the charity event can sample tasting plates prepared by dozens of the city’s restaurants, including Blue Hill, Craft, Landmarc, Le Bernardin, and Tribeca Grill. The auction includes exclusive dinners with top chefs, vacation packages, sports memorabilia, and concert tickets.

Last year's Bid Against Hunger event raised more than $1 million to help City Harvest provide food and more than 4.5 million meals for New York’s hungry.

Ticket prices are $350 to $1,400. VIP tickets include a VIP hour that begins at 6 p.m. and access to a VIP room with a tasting of the region’s best food, passed hors d’oeuvres, and wine.
