Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine to Host Surviving Military Families with TAPS in Las Vegas

Families Grieving the Loss of a Military Loved One Gather to Cook, Connect and Honor Their Fallen Heroes

 

 The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) will bring surviving military families together in Las Vegas from July 18–21, 2019 for a TAPS Survivor Experience, made possible by a grant from The Robert Irvine Foundation. The Robert Irvine Foundation supports military charities and other organizations that work directly with service members, veterans and their families. In Las Vegas, surviving military families with TAPS will spend time with Chef Irvine, an avid supporter of the men and women who defend our nation’s freedom and the families who serve alongside them.

 

The four-day event will bring together families from across the country who have lost loved ones in military service or as a result of military service. The families will share rich and meaningful moments in Las Vegas while cooking with Chef Irvine and connecting with each other to honor and remember their fallen heroes.  

 

Tropicana Las Vegas will host the families and welcome them to “Legends in Concert,” the longest-running show in Las Vegas. During the trip, the families will also visit the site of the hit History Channel television show, “Pawn Stars,” and attend a special presentation at the Nevada State Veterans Memorial. A highlight of the trip will be preparing dishes and cooking with Chef Irvine, followed by a TAPS Family Dinner hosted at Robert Irvine’s Public House. 

 

“TAPS Survivor Experiences bring together military survivors who share similar losses to further build a sense of community,” said Bonnie Carroll, TAPS President and Founder and 2015 Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient. “Each TAPS Survivor Experience includes time for conversation, reflection and special opportunities to celebrate the life and service of our fallen heroes. We are incredibly grateful to Chef Irvine and The Robert Irvine Foundation for bringing surviving military families together in Las Vegas for this life-changing experience.”

 

“We are honored to partner with TAPS and welcome the families of our fallen heroes to Las Vegas,” said Robert Irvine. “The Robert Irvine Foundation is dedicated to supporting military members and their families however possible. Military families suffer so much pain and heartbreak, and this weekend is all about doing anything we can to alleviate that pain – even if for a moment. We’ve curated a weekend filled with special experiences in hopes of bringing moments of joy to families while celebrating the lives of our fallen military.”

“After learning more about Three Square Food Bank during my last visit to Las Vegas, I was very impressed by how Three Square sources food, raises funds and relies on volunteers to provide wholesome food directly to hungry people in hundreds of neighborhoods, here locally,” said Chef Irvine. “I am thrilled to be a part of this very special cookout, and hope to see the local community and tourists join us for this one-of-a-kind event.”

PHOTOS: Tropicana Las Vegas’ Newest Chef Robert Irvine Announces Upcoming Restaurant Name & Concept at ‘Robert Irvine Live’

TROPICANA LAS VEGAS’ NEWEST CHEF ROBERT IRVINE ANNOUNCES UPCOMING RESTAURANT NAME
& CONCEPT AT ‘ROBERT IRVINE LIVE’

Thursday evening, Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine surprised audience members at ‘Robert Irvine LIVE’ by revealing the name and concept of his newest Las Vegas restaurant Robert Irvine’s Public House coming summer 2017 to Tropicana Las Vegas. Irvine’s first foray into the Las Vegas culinary landscape will feature a one-of-a-kind food and entertainment experience. The all-new restaurant will offer a range of comfort food options inspired by Irvine’s culinary travels from around the world – all in a pub-like atmosphere.

 

“Robert Irvine’s Public House is all about the people! The all-new restaurant will be the perfect entertainment venue for locals and tourists alike featuring a pub environment, where guest are invited to congregate and enjoy great food and drinks,” said Irvine. “Once you see the restaurant space, you will be wowed. I am really excited to be a part of the culinary landscape here in Las Vegas, and am honored to partner with Tropicana Las Vegas and Penn National Gaming.”

‘Robert Irvine LIVE’ was a high-energy, multimedia, and multi-sensory theatrical experience inside The Tropicana Theater. Much like Irvine’s hit television shows Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible, the former British Navy cook walked into theater with no knowledge of what he was about to face. From cheek retractors to handcuffs, Irvine faced three cooking challenges brought on by the audience during the 120-minute live interactive show. Over 20 audience members were called to the stage to help, ambush and compete against the celebrity chef. In the end, Irvine successful made the impossible possible with three delectable dishes in a turnaround time of only 15 minutes each. In addition, Irvine also paid tribute to the men and women that serve the country. Over 100 military were graciously invited, courtesy of Irvine and Tropicana Las Vegas.

“Chef Robert Irvine is truly one-of-a-kind and we are thrilled to welcome Irvine into the Tropicana Las Vegas family,” said Aaron Rosenthal, general manager of Tropicana Las Vegas. “With much anticipation, we are pleased to announce Tropicana Las Vegas’ newest restaurant addition, Robert Irvine’s Public House. This has been a very exciting chapter for the property, and we’re excited to continue to create a premier destination in Las Vegas for our guests and beyond.”

That afternoon Robert Irvine also visited Three Square Food Bank. There, he toured the facility with Chief Development Officer Michelle Beck and learned about Three Square’s programs and helped to put meals together with other local volunteers.

 

In May of 2016, the Food Network chef announced that he would be teaming up with Tropicana Las Vegas to open his first restaurant concept on the Las Vegas Strip. By way of introduction, Irvine repelled 22 stories (220 feet) down the exterior of the hotel, greeting guests in true Robert Irvine-fashion.
