Cincinnati chefs are banding together to support the people of Ukraine through cuisine.

Pierogi for Peace will take place 6-9 p.m. May 9 at OTR StillHouse (2017 Branch St., Over-the-Rhine).

Wodka Bar, one of the participants, posted to the bar and restaurant's social media that "Cincinnati chefs from over 35 restaurants will create signature pierogi for patrons to enjoy while sipping beer and wine crafted by Stillhouse Distillery."

Tickets cost $100 and the website lists participating restaurants and chefs including Arnold's Bar and Grill, Le Bar a Boeuf, the BonBonerie, Forno, Fausto, Mazunte, Share Cheesebar, Taste of Belgium and more.

Event coordinator Suzy DeYoung of La Soupe told WCPO that fillings will range from duck confit and short rib to pot roast.

Tickets include pierogi, entertainment and alcohol.

Proceeds will benefit Cincinnati's sister city of Kharkiv and the rest of Ukraine via the work of World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit that provides meals during humanitarian, climate and community crises, per its description, and Cincy4Ukraine, a nonprofit started by Ukrainians in Cincinnati.
