Taste of the NFL: Dallas Cowboys Style
Cadillac is a proud sponsor of Taste of the NFL in 2011. Taste of NFL is a strolling food and wine event held on the eve of Super Bowl in the host city. More than 32 restaurant stations, one from each NFL city, provide fabulous food and wine pairings for guests to sample. Guests can enjoy getting photos with and autographs from our celebrity chefs and players. (Merchandise such as footballs, helmets and aprons are available for sale at the event.) They also have the opportunity to bid on hundreds of one-of-a-kind sports and entertainment items, gorgeous jewelry and fabulous getaways in our silent auction. The evening concludes with entertainment from a nationally-acclaimed band or performer. Don’t miss out on this special event!

The Hunger Issue
As you read this, millions of people in America are struggling with hunger. In fact, 1 out of every 6 people in our country face this serious issue – many of them are children. For 20 years, Taste of the NFL has been working to kick hunger. While we're proud to report that we've raised more than $10 million during that time, we're saddened to report that the need to do more is greater than ever. We hope you'll support our efforts by making a contribution.

Taste of the NFL Mission

To address the needs of the hungry and homeless by raising awareness and money through special events.

Since 1992, the Taste of the NFL has rallied the country's top chefs and the NFL's greatest to raise money in support of food banks throughout the United States. The efforts culminate at the Super Bowl with The Party with a Purpose®. Held on the eve of Super Bowl, this event is a unique way to experience exceptional cuisine, meet NFL players and coaches, and support our fight against hunger. Through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers who help make Taste of the NFL the single most successful charitable event at the Super Bowl, Taste of the NFL continues to help feed the 37 million Americans who have turned to their local food banks for assistance. Millions of needs, thousands of families and dozens of new hunger projects have been affected by this major volunteer effort. Our goal: end hunger. Won't you help?

Who does Taste of the NFL Help?
Each year, net proceeds from the Taste of the NFL's Super Bowl event are donated to Feeding America-affiliated food banks in each of the NFL cities with an emphasis on the Super Bowl host city's food bank.  For a complete list of Taste of the NFL supported food banks.

The tasty Cadillac Escalade continues to offer the most complete model lineup in its segment, with three distinct body styles and the Escalade Platinum models.
