Brisket Cook-Off

Inaugural Pro-Am Brisket Cook-Off Competition

The multi-day event, part of Parkinson’s Resource Organization’s (PRO’s) Caring Forward Until There is a Cure Campaign 2022-2023, will raise money for the organization, which provides emotional support, practical resources, one-on-one coaching, information, and more to the Parkinson’s community in Coachella Valley and across the nation.

Participants, including chefs from local restaurants, home cooks with Grandma’s secret recipe, and surprise celebrity guests, will compete for first, second, and third place prizes at each event, although the real winners will be the attendees, who get to taste more than a dozen unique takes on brisket at an evening cocktail event at the National Kick-Off at Shadow Mountain Golf Club.

The winning briskets will be featured in a commemorative cookbook alongside recipe contributions from celebrities, partnering restaurants, people with Parkinson’s, and others. Many local restaurants, retailers, and grocers will also be participating both at the events and also with special promotions in their own venues to support Parkinson’s Resource Organization.

PRO is finalizing a major national specialty food Naming Sponsor for the Brisk-Off, which will be announced shortly. There are still sponsorship opportunities available at the following levels:
Restaurant Sponsor ($2,500)
Corporate Sponsor ($2,500)
VIP Sponsor ($500)

Join us as we celebrate food and caring.
