It’s almost time to dig in and help local children and teens at a well-known culinary event with a big variety of food and spirits to satisfy diverse tastes.

Dish It Out will feature 40 restaurants from North Central Phoenix and around the Valley from 5 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20, at High Street, a dining and shopping experience at 5415 E. High St. Those at least 21 years old can try dishes from popular restaurants as well as wine and spirits, with all proceeds from the event going to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix.

Mathew Blades and Priscilla Ornelas of the morning team at iHeart Radio’s Mix 96.9 FM will serve as emcees for the gathering and the band The Walkens will perform.

Tickets are $75 each for general admission and $200 for VIP access, which includes entry an hour earlier, at 4 p.m., and two exclusive areas with premium restaurants, wine and spirits, a beer yard and other goodies. For tickets and more information, visit
