Fry's Food Stores Sponsors Dish It Out

Dish It Out 2016

BGCMP is proud to have Fry's Food Stores back as the Title Sponsor of Dish It Out, our highly anticipated culinary event, which will take place on Sunday, October 23 at High Street in North Phoenix.

Some of the Valley’s favorite restaurants are going head-to-head in a gourmet melee to knock out childhood hunger. This event has it all: top-shelf talent serving up their signature dishes, live entertainment and the Valley’s most innovative chefs battling for the title of Dish It Out Champion. All proceeds benefit the children who count on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix for safety, hot meals and educational opportunities.

Join us for food, drink and fun!

Character Counts

Sebastian, age 10, from the MLB/AZ Diamondbacks Club, has been a member for two years. He was quiet and shy at first, but when asked to join the Club’s soccer team, he quickly broke out of his shell. It was at that moment when Sebastian’s leadership talent was born. Whether it’s playing games or helping staff, Sebastian is a leader amongst everybody, even the older kids.
