The celebrated chef will cook up a salmon dinner for thousands
at Obliteride’s kick-off party


Award-winning chef, restaurateur, and author Tom Douglas will indulge riders and their guests with a special Pacific Northwest salmon dinner at Obliteride’s kick-off party at Gas Works Park on Friday, August 9, 2013. All registered riders will receive two complimentary tickets to this exclusive party.

Driven by the goal to end cancer, Obliteride is a new, community-wide effort to accelerate lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Creating a movement of people committed to obliterating cancer and saving lives faster, it culminates in a fundraising bike ride Aug. 9-11, 2013, with a major route through the streets of Lake Forest Park. (See previous article.)

“We’re excited to team up with Obliteride and cook cancer’s butt!” said Tom Douglas. “We all know someone who has battled or died from cancer and I’m happy to support Obliteride. Fred Hutch is one of the premier cancer research centers in the world and we all need to step up and fund the important, lifesaving cancer research going on right here in our own backyard.” 
Douglas is the owner of 13 Seattle restaurants, recipient of the 2012 James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Restaurateur of the Year Award, and is credited with putting Seattle on the culinary map.

Obliteride is more than a bike ride to benefit cancer research at Fred Hutch. It’s an entire weekend of celebrations and concerts, including some well-known bands. The inaugural event is August 9-11, 2013.

“This amazing party catered by Tom Douglas is just one of the many ways we are thanking riders for stepping up to make a real impact in the fight against cancer,” said Amy Lavin, Obliteride’s executive director. “Every rider is asked to raise a minimum of $1,000. This group understands the impact cancer is having in our lives. We want to thank them for their commitment and celebrate our shared commitment to end this disease.”
