The Great Chef’s Event

WP_000251

Where do I even begin with such an amazing event?  I will keep this short and sweet and to what was most important.  I’m truly honored to have been a part of this event. The Great Chefs event is to help stop childhood cancer; hosted by Alex’s Lemonade and Vetri Foundation.  I think the highlight of this event wasn’t the amazing food or cocktails.  It was hearing Alex’s parents speak.  Being a mother of 2 small kids, I found that it really was heartfelt and touching.  Liz Scott gave the most beautiful speech.  I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Liz.  She is a down to earth woman, who is very inspirational.  The event raised 1+ Million.  It was great to see everyone come together for such a great cause. 

The food and cocktails of course were fantastic.  The chefs that attended this year were truly Great Chefs, from Chef Marc Murphy to Chef Michael Symon.  I hope that you have the chance to attend this event next year.

Lets all stand together and stop childhood cancer.
