Taste of the Rams 2018
Thanks to the Los Angeles Rams, Don Lee Farms and LA Chefs that raised more than $170,000 this year.
The third annual Taste of the Rams event presented by Don Lee Farms was held on Monday, November 5th, at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. Todd Gurley II, Honorary Chair and the NFL’s reigning Offensive Player of the Year helped raise more than $170,000 for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
In three years, this event has raised nearly half a million dollars. Every dollar donated to the Food Bank provides four meals to our neighbors in need, so Taste of the Rams has provided almost 2 million meals to our neighbors in need.
This year’s event featured 12 of Los Angeles’s top chefs including Steve Samson of SOTTO and Rossoblu, Neal Fraser of Redbird and Vibiana, Ted Hopson of The Bellwether, and Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken of Border Grill.
