June 20, 2017 - For more than a decade, The Great Chefs Event event has brought together over 1,000 guests and 50 celebrated chefs from throughout the nation and Italy to benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer and the Vetri Community Partnership, a local organization that seeks to empower families to lead healthier lives through fresh food.Taking place at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, the event invites guests to enjoy dozens of decadent tasting plates and see top chefs in action.
This June, more than 40 of the best culinary superstars will come from across the country and around the world to Philadelphia for the 12th Annual Great Chefs Event.
These culinary greats are personally invited by host chef, Marc Vetri, and will create delicious samplings indicative of their own personal styles.
Representatives from the country’s best bars, wineries and craft breweries will also be present. In addition to food and drink, guests will have the opportunity to bid on silent and live auction items. Auction items include one-of-kind culinary experiences such as private dinners with participating chefs, hard-to-get concert tickets, autographed memorabilia and much more.
Last year, this event welcomed more than 1,000 guests and raised over $730,000 to support both Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the Vetri Community Partnership, which partners with schools to bring healthier school lunches to students.
