Anna’s Taqueria to host celebrity burrito roller showdown
On Monday night, Boston-area celebrities will roll up their sleeves and roll some burritos at Anna’s Taqueria.
The Celebrity Burrito Roller Showdown kicks off at 6 p.m. at the Brookline restaurant.
Proceeds of celeb-rolled burritos will be donated to the winner’s charity of choice. Fans will be invited to root for their favorite roller, donate to the cause, and enjoy giveaways, snacks and, of course, burritos.
Last year, the Celebrity Burrito Roller Series raised about $20,000 for local charities.
Competitors will include:
- Henry Santoro of RadioBDC rolling for the ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund
- Jonathan Soroff of The Improper Bostonian rolling for the Caring for Carcinoid Foundation
- Mean Creek, a Boston rock band, rolling for Pine Street Inn
- Rachel Cossar, ballerina and food blogger, rolling for the Boston Ballet Foundation
- Tiffani Faison of Sweet Cheeks and Bravo TV’s “Top Chef” rolling for MassEquality
