Meat Fight 2016 Raises $175,000+ to Defeat Multiple Sclerosis

Flatscreens from Dallas Light and Sound flank the Meat Fight 2016 stage to convey
event branding, sponsor recognition, and to provided details on each of the event's live auction items.
If you were anywhere near Trinity Groves on the morning of November 13th, you probably caught a whiff of meat being prepared for Meat Fight. Later that afternoon more than 1,000 meat enthusiasts packed The Big Green Warehouse at Trinity Groves to eat meat and drink whiskey and beer. Along the way they raised more than $175,000 to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society!

The mission of Meat Fight is to make the lives of those living with MS brighter - and ultimately, to find a cure for MS. Meat Fight donates 100% of base ticket price (before service fees) directly to the National MS Society and programs that support those living with MS. These programs include the organization’s own, original Meat Fight Meat Bike program, which gives bikes to those living with MS.

Organizers Alice and Michael Laussade have taken Meat Fight from a keg party in their backyard in 2010 and grown it to become an amazing gathering of competitive chefs, whiskey and beer drinkers, and barbecue lovers.
Competing Chefs at Meat Fight 2016 take to the sage prior to the announcement of category winners
at this sold out event held in Trinity Groves at the Big Green Barn.
Chefs competed individually and in team. The individual winners included Omar Flores (Brisket),
Anastacia Quinones (sausage), Oliver Sitrin (pork ribs), : Patton Robertson (beef ribs). The People’s Choice was given to Andrew Dilda. The team that took home the prize for best team is Meat Sweats—Tiffany Derry, Jeana Johnson, Patton Robertson, and Eric Dreyer. The VIP area hosted the Sideshow awards. Trophies went to Travis & Emma Heim for their bacon tower, Sarah Green and Brian Zenner for Meatlennium Falcon, to Janice Provost for her Wagyu Frito Pie.

Dallas Light and Sound provided lighting, audio, video and d├ęcor services for a second year of involvement with Meat Fight. Event Chandeliers from DLS added a touch of whimsy and glamor to the VIP area. Flatscreens flanking the stage recognized event sponsors and provided a rolling reel that described live auction items. Stage and perimeter lighting in the building illuminated the festivities.
