New York Jets, Saks 5th Avenue Team Up for Food Bank Benefit
On Monday, November 10, the 11th annual Taste of the Jets returns to raise funds on behalf of the Food Bank for New York City.
Combining high fashion with football, members of the New York Jets will walk the runway wearing the latest from Saks Fifth Avenue’s private menswear collection.
What’s more, restaurants from all over the city will be in attendance to serve a signature dish.
So far, 20 restaurants are confirmed, including Lavo, Tao, and Dos Caminos. The evening’s desserts will be provided by the “Cake Boss” himself, Buddy Valastro.
Hosted by Jets center Nick Mangold and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson, the Taste will be held at the newly opened 4 World Trade Center, which will also be the site of a special edition of Inside the Jets, the weekly Monday night 98.7 ESPN radio show hosted by the voice of the Jets, Bob Wischusen, and featuring on-air player guests.
Tickets are available for $375, and season ticket holders will receive a $50 discount. All net proceeds will benefit the Food Bank For New York City.
