Annual Seafood Fundraiser.

‘Charity Off The Hook’ returns to The Tavern At Ivy City Smokehouse for our annual seafood fundraiser benefiting regional charities. Our mission alongside sustainable seafood distributor ProFish is to identify local charities and host an annual celebration to raise funds for local non-profits.


The Event

Along with individual chef tasting stations, the event will feature a raw bar with fresh shucked oysters, a smoked seafood station featuring product from the Ivy City Smokehouse, a beer garden on the patio, a casino night, and a variety of local and regional wines.

One evening for the entire local food community to come together and focus on raising funds and awareness to some truly worthy charities. The celebration showcases seafood products, with each chef preparing a unique signature dish. Come for the food!



“It’s a great opportunity for us to contribute to the community and the industry in which we serve,” says ProFish owner Greg Casten. “We are also able to share with anyone who is a recipient of our giving why and how seafood is an important and viable component of our ecosystem and the health benefits of eating seafood on a regular basis.”
