Rock it Out at DeSoto Central Market

  • DeSoto Central Market 915 North Central Avenue Phoenix, AZ, 85004 United States (map)

“Rock Out” is hosted by PCH’s Emerging Leaders and DeSoto Central Market to benefit the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. This year, the 80s-themed rock n’ roll extravaganza will include a “7 Chef Series” featuring food and beverage from 12 acclaimed Valley chefs, live music provided by DJ Mr. Phoenix and Sweet Cherry Pie, a local 80’s cover band. All attendees are encouraged to wear classic 80s attire at DeSoto Central Market, Roosevelt Row’s resident food hall, artisanal marketplace and expansive event venue.

Participating chefs who are giving back to the cause include DeSoto’s in-house culinary talent, Chef Stephen Jones from the larder + the delta, Allan Inocencio from Adobo Dragon, Bryan Marscovetra from RADish and other well-known names in the industry such as Gio Osso from Nico Heirloom Kitchen and Virtu Honest Craft, Cullen Campbell from Okra and Crudo and more. Food and craft cocktail samples will have a fun 80s connotation to fit with the overall theme. The event will benefit Condition Critical, a campaign to build a new Emergency Department and Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center at Phoenix Children's.

Early Bird tickets (through 10/1) are $70 and include all you can eat food, two drink tickets, plus one raffle ticket to enter for the evening’s biggest prizes. For additional event details and to purchase tickets, visit www.pchrockout.com.
