Come Eat for Housing Justice in Wisconsin!
The Tenant Resource Center will host our annual Iron Chef fundraiser on:
Friday, April 1st, 2016
from 5pm to 7pm at
The Brink Lounge in Madison
-- and we're not foolin' around this year!
Rental rights are no joke as TRC faces funding cuts and Wisconsin faces more changes to tenant-landlord laws. But we aren't daunted! In our tradition of resilience, we are making this event even better! Check out these exciting new opportunities for chefs, sponsors, and all our guests.
The winner of the Wegner CPAs "People Choice Award" will be voted on by our guests, and receive a gift basket from Wegner CPAs to help them in their future culinary endeavors.
The Battle Winners & Judge's Overall Best Dish will be chosen by our Iron Judges:
Alder David Ahrens
Supervisor Michelle Ritt
Tania Twining (Alexander RE)
NEW! The Citizens United Award
Money can't buy everything -- but it can buy elections!
The 2016 Iron Chef competition will introduce a new award for the Chef who raises the most cash votes in their name to benefit TRC. This entirely unregulated process will favor the most creative, random, or ruthless strategy for getting the most bucks into their buckets! The proud winner will receive a one-year supply of envy, infamy, and self-satisfaction.
NEW! #YelpTRC Photo Battle Sponsored by Yelp Madison!
Guests, judges, and chefs will be able to compete for a giftbag full of prizes by posting photos of the event to Facebook and Twitter under the hashtag #YelpTRC. (The randomly selected winner must be present at the awards announcements at 7pm to win.)
NEW Fall 2016! "Master Chef" Chosen by the People
The winners of each ingredient battle at the 2016 Iron Chef event will be invited to compete with a single dish at our 2016 fall fundraiser. The winner will be selected by the people, not big money. More details to come!
"Real life. Real solutions." Help us keep helping!
In 2015, TRC helped more than 18,000+ people with rental housing issues. Even with our funding cuts and changes to services, these numbers will remain high! Your support at Iron Chef will help us continue to keep families safe in their homes and unlock the doors to affordable housing.
So bring an empty stomach and an adventurous spirit! The suggested donation is $25 -- more if you can and less if you can't. No one turned away for lack of funds. Every guest will get ballots for the People's Choice Award to vote on their favorite dish!
