If you didn't feel like dumping a bucketful of ice water all of yourself last year, you still have the opportunity to join in on some group fun to benefit Arizona's chapter of the ALS Association. On Saturday, Sept. 5, Bite Nite will hit up Tucson for an evening of food, wine and charitable giving.

Although Bite Nite has been a major fundraiser in Phoenix since 2008, last year was the first time it came to Tucson. In 2014 alone, the Tucson event raised $65,000, selling out to 400 guests. This year, event organizers are anticipating another sellout. 

The event will feature several of the Old Pueblo's favorite eateries including Penca, Mama Louisa's, Agustin Kitchen, Ermanos, Azul, Boca Tacos and more. The restaurants will each be serving upscale samples, which can in turn be paired with craft beer and wine, all while live music and a silent auction keep guests entertained. The auction will feature restaurant gift cards, free wine dinners and more. 

Bite Nite Tucson will take place at the picturesque Westin La Paloma Resort from 6 until 10 p.m. Tickets for the event are $100 per person or $1,000 for a 10-seat table. You can buy yours and find more information on the event via the Bite Nite website. It is a 21 and over event.
