The Chefs for Kids Dinner and Auction—25th Anniversary—will be held on Saturday, May 7 at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa. The evening’s Legacy Award honors County Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick and the Corporate Award honors Anderson Dairy, both for their ongoing support of the Chefs for Kids program.

Commissioner Kirkpatrick has served on the Chefs for Kids Board of Directors and is involved in several other community services. Anderson Dairy has participated and supported the Chefs for Kids program from its inception.

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 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 $195 per person. Tables of eight are $1560 and tables of 10 are $1,850. To purchase tickets or for more information about this black tie optional event, please call or email Susan Lednicky at 702-257-5548 or visit the Chefs for Kids website.
