Dishing Out Relief

Welcome! This auction consists of exclusive chef and food experiences, gift certificates, products, memorabilia, and much more. All proceeds benefit the Texas Restaurant Relief Fund, which was established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has created a challenge of catastrophic magnitude for the restaurant industry. In Texas, the pandemic has caused 688,000 job losses, $80B in lost sales revenue, and caused 34% of Texas’ 50,000 restaurants to close since March 15.

We're working hard to put critical funds directly into the hands of the Texas restaurant communities’ most vulnerable population, independent restaurant owners, which in turn will help to save the jobs of the workers they employ.

Restaurants in Texas are facing a catastrophe unlike we’ve ever seen and appreciate the support from our partners as we work to save restaurants.

The auction is open to everyone – industry and the general public – and will also accepts direct donations too! So place your bids and take advantage of these memorable items and experiences.
