Chef's for Charity - a huge success

Unfortunately, Chef's for Charity was so successful, some people were turned away as the space was filled to capacity, and probably beyond. When I left, there were cars parked as far as Seabourne and people lined up through the parking lot to get in!

For those of us lucky enough to be there (and even better, to be there early), it was an incredible event.The tables were beautiful, the booths all looked great. The chefs and their crews obviously worked very hard to turn out some fabulous taste treats, but had smiles for everyone. Neil's Mexican theme was great, outfits, vases full of a beautiful variety of hot peppers and a feast of choices. That chili would give Zach a serious run for his money! And we got to eat sushi! And ribs and island mash and pizza and...oh my...

...which reminds me of the most remarkable part of the night, well, to me anyway...that I wore a white top and spilled nothing on it. No red wine. No drippy drops. No leaping blops. I'm declaring it a miracle and perhaps a first in my life. No photos, sorry, you'll just have to believe me

Did I have a favorite booth and offering? Sure, until I tried something else...there was a kaleidoscope of flavors, a dizzying merry-go-round of choices. All in all, it was a fantastic night. Marsha manned the ticket table like a trooper and I'm sorry I didn't get a shot of her there.

Enjoy! Better yet, next year, be here and enjoy it for real if you weren't here this time.


  1. Looks like it was great fun! Did the chefs' restaurants remain open during the event?

  2. all i can say is wish i'd been there!! thanks for making it come alive for those of us that couldn't be there!

  3. Well, I wouldn't know since I was there...but Susie's hasn't reopened for season yet (day after T'day), JB probably not since Jennifer is the one and only chef...anyway, everyone who wanted to eat out was THERE! ;)

  4. Weird, Laurie...your comment just showed up! Your welcome and thanks.
