“For children, Neverland is a magical place where anything is possible, and that’s the spirit we want to evoke during the 26th Annual Chefs for Kids Gala,” said Chef Christopher Johns, Chairman of Chefs for Kids. “Fly away with us and together we can continue on this awfully big adventure providing nutrition education and a warm breakfast for children in southern Nevada.”
