I am on the edge of my seat for this event. The line up of Chefs and most importantly the cause makes this one of those not to miss events.
James Beard Award-Winning Chef Marc Vetri, restaurateur Jeff Benjamin and James Beard Winner Chef Jeff Michaud will host more than 40 of the world’s greatest chefs this June for the Eighth Annual Great Chefs Event to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the Vetri Foundation for Children.
On Tuesday, June 11, more than 1,200 guests will gather at Urban Outfitters world headquarters on Philadelphia’s waterfront for the foodie charity event of the year. A host of more than 40 top-flight chefs from around the globe will join by donating their time, talent and food to create delectable samplings for guests prepared right in front of their eyes. Guests will enjoy music and mingling, as well as silent and live auction items, which include one-of-kind experiences like a gastro-tour of Piedmont, Italy for six with award-winning chef Marc Vetri.
The Eight Annual Great Chefs Event will welcome returning chefs including Tom Colicchio, renowned chef and head judge on Bravo’s Top Chef; as well as several other famous faces including the Food Network’s Iron Chefs Jose Garces and Michael Symon. Several of the other participating chefs are James Beard Award winners and nominees, including host chefs Marc Vetri and Jeff Michaud, Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook of Animal/Son of a Gun, Marco Canora of Hearth, and Drew Nieporent of Centrico/Tacombi/Mestizo, among others.
