The Cincinnati Bengals and Taste of the NFL teamed up to benefit the Freestore Foodbank on Wednesday.
The annual dinner-by-the-bite event was held at Paul Brown Stadium, pairing chefs from more than 40 of the Tri-State's favorite restaurants with the Cincinnati Bengals football team, coaches and alumni.
It was hosted by Cincinnati Bengals player Carlos Dunlap and restaurateur David Falk of Boca, Nada and Sotto.
The evening also included a silent auction of sports themed items, a live auction of dinners and other experiences with players and coaches, and a raffle featuring a '20 Nights Out' gift pack of twenty $100 gift certificates to some of Cincinnati's top restaurants.
In total, Cincinnati's Taste of the NFL raised $120,000.
