It’s time for Las Vegas gents to bust out their suit & tie and ladies to don their best cocktail dress for an evening of food, fun and philanthropy at the 25th Annual Chefs for Kids Gala. The black-tie optional gala, themed Champagne and Roses, will take place Saturday, May 7, 5:30 p.m. at South Point Hotel, Casino, and Spa.
“Throughout the year our chefs work hard to serve more than 9,000 meals to children in at-risk elementary schools, but for one night a year we have the opportunity to serve the people who make our programs possible,” said Chef Christopher Johns, Chairman of Chefs for Kids. “We’re inviting the community to come out and join us for a night of food, fun and philanthropy as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary.”
The evening will begin at 5:30 PM with a cocktail reception and silent auction followed by a gourmet dinner, raffle and live auction by Christian Kolberg beginning at 7 p.m. Guests will then dance the night away with the renowned band Harbor Lights, performing everything from high-energy modern Top 40 hits like Katy Perry’s “California Girls” and Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face,” to Motown hits such as the Temptations “My Girl” and Aretha Franklin’s “Respect.” Dave Courvoisier will serve as master of ceremonies.
During the event, Chefs for Kids will present individual and corporate awards to Commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick and Anderson Dairy. Kirkpatrick, a long-time supporter of the organization, will receive the Legacy Award for her steadfast support of Chefs for Kids. Anderson Dairy will receive the Corporate Award for their continued assistance in furthering their nutrition education program.
