Battle of the Burgers Will Help Feed Hungry Families

The Mahoning Valley Burger Review Board presents the Mahoning Valley Battle of the Burgers August 2 and 3 at the Warren Community Amphitheatre. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.

On Saturday, the gates open at 5:00 p.m. with the River Rock at the Amp concert featuring Thunderstruck and Mr. Speed.  Tickets to River Rock at the Amp are $7.00.  The burger judging starts at 6:00 p.m.  Special guests, Tommy Christmas and the crew of Fat N' Furious: Rolling Thunder, a television show on the Discovery Channel, will take part in the event by serving as burger judges.  

Sunday, August 3 is Family Day — admission for adults is $2, teens are $1, and children 12 and under are free. 

The Mahoning Valley Burger Review Board has existed for five big, savory, deliciously juicy years, and are now in a position to turn a group of guys' fun night out into a fun weekend festival celebrating our Valley's locally owned restaurants and taverns.

“We’re all about local, and Second Harvest feeds thousands of families right here in the Mahoning Valley, which is why we have selected them as our charity,” said Jerry Tranovich, member, MVBRB.  "For the Battle of the Burgers, 10 local restaurants, including all five of our Burger of the Year award winners will battle it out in 4 different categories and will be judged by local celebrities. Before the weekend is through, we will know without a doubt, who has the best burgers," said Tranovich.
