Chefs for Kids Dinner and Auction set for February 21

Posted 1/13/2015

This year’s dinner honors individual and corporate supporters

The Chefs for Kids Dinner and Auction—Mangia Italiano!—will be held on Saturday, February 21, 2015, at Paris Hotel and Casino. The evening’s Legacy Award honors Tom and Barbara McDonald and the Corporate Award honors the Brown Blankfeld Group, both for their ongoing support of the program.

The gala evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with a reception and silent auction. Dave Courvoisier, KLAS-TV anchor, is the Master of Ceremonies. A gourmet dinner is served at 7 p.m. with Christian Kolberg conducting the live auction. The evening continues with dancing to the music of Harbor Lights.

The Chefs for Kids program is a joint venture of the American Culinary Federation Chefs of Las Vegas and University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. This program works to eliminate malnutrition and hunger through education and awareness. The nutrition education program is taught to high needs first and second grade students in Clark County. Surprisingly, many children lack the essential nutrition knowledge necessary to fight personal battles against poor eating habits. In addition to the educational program, the chefs provide monthly breakfasts to participating schools and Thanksgiving food boxes and holiday food gift cards to especially needy families in participating schools.

Tickets for the evening’s event are $185 per person. Tables of ten are $1,700. To purchase tickets or for more information about this black tie optional event, please email or call Susan Lednicky at 702-257-5548 or visit the Chefs for Kids website.
