2020 Slider Throwdown
November 8, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm$35
On Sunday, Nov. 8, the 2020 Slider Throwdown is set to take over High Street, located at 56th and the 101 in North Phoenix, for this annual “battle of the burger” benefiting the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation (AFFCF). From noon to 3 p.m., attendees can enjoy samples of delicious sliders — in a variety of interpretations such as beef, chicken, veggie and more — from some of the Valley’s most popular food trucks, all in the name of helping the AFFCF’s mission to support local foster children in need, all in a COVID-friendly event environment.
Throughout the event, local food truck vendors compete for the title of “Best Slider.” Select slider experts serve as judges, and event guests can vote on their favorite slider to be honored with the coveted “People’s Choice” Award. This year’s line-up of participants includes:
Two Fat Guys Grilled Cheese
Buzz N Bee
Randizzle’s Food Truck
Tzikii Food Truck
It’s Seoul Good
Admission is $35 and includes samples of all sliders plus three drink tickets for redemption of non-alcoholic drinks. A silent auction will take place during the event, with lots of exciting packages to be won, and live music by the Josh West Trio will keep the crowd on their feet.
In addition, the event will adhere to all COVID protocols including social distancing, limited ticket sales, mask usage, hand-sanitizing stations, etc.
All proceeds from the event benefit the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation (AFFCF), a non-profit organization dedicated to giving foster children the opportunity for “normal” childhoods and prepare them for successful adulthoods through programming and scholarships. The AFFCF needs the community’s help to continue this important work for the more than 13,000 children currently in foster care in the state. Valley residents can do their part while (safely!) socializing, shopping and sampling tasty sliders by purchasing tickets to the 2020 Slider Throwdown at www.affcf.org.
