Burger Battle benefits charity

The Second Annual Wilmington Burger Battle will take place on Aug. 24 from noon to 4 p.m. at Twin Lakes Brewing Company (4210 Kennett Pike, Greenville, Del.).

Restaurants in the greater Wilmington area--including last year Critic's Choice Burger winner, Kildare's Irish Pub, and People's Choice Burger winner, Union City Grille--are expected to throw down again for this outdoor, rain-or-shine charity event. Proceeds will support the Ministry of Caring's Emmanuel Dining Room. Admission prices will include food, beer tastings, soft drinks, and music. Tickets are available through wilmingtonburgerbattle.com
Event co-founder Matthew Curtis, chef/owner of Union City Grille, who took home a trophy in 2012, said, "I consider the burger to be the perfect food, and a restaurant's burger can really tell you a lot about its quality. We were thrilled that 16 of Delaware's best restaurants came together last year to compete, and are hoping for more this year. I bet some of last year's chefs want a rematch with me!" 
More than 400 people attended the 2012 event to place their votes for People's Choice Burger, and the event raised more than $4,000 to fight hunger. Three Delaware sports legends served as "Delebrity" judges, and tasted 18 burgers like champs, ultimately declaring Kildare's burger their favorite.  
Battle co-founder JulieAnne Cross said, "We are hoping for a rich field of entries in the Alternative Burger category this year. Many of our vegetarian friends supported the event last year and we want them to enjoy the food as much as they enjoy the Delaware-brewed Twin Lakes beer."

The Twin Lakes farm in Greenville has again agreed to be the host, and event proceeds will support the Emmanuel Dining Room, which helps feed Delaware's hungry.
