Chef's For the Cure
Susan G. Komen for the Cure in partnership with Cancer Treatment Centers of America held their 6th annual Chef’s for the Cure July 10, 2010.
This event was started by a CTCA’s Executive Chef Kenny Wagoner who like many of us had a close connection to breast cancer when his mother was diagnosed in 1997. Wagoner organized Chef’s for the Cure in 2005 as a benefit for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Tulsa Affiliate. Chef’s has grown year after year as Mr. Wagoner recruits well-known Tulsa area chefs to prepare a collection of gourmet cuisines.
Each chef had their own chef gear to wear.
And all chef stations had signs indicating the dish
There were chefs still preparing their yummy cuisines.......
and there was a lot of out of this world food.....
and food for all the carnivores!
There were cute couples enjoying the eveing.
Fun ice sculptures that provided yummy drinks.
Tables full of survivors from a company sponsor.
Tables full of extraordinary people and friends.
One of the highlights from the night came when the chefs had to sing for their supper. While guests sampled all the yummy food prepared by these extraordinary chefs they tipped the ones they liked the best. At the end of the night the top five chefs song for their supper which provided more donations.
Chef Wagoner won the "Sing for your Supper".
It was an amazing night had by all.....
For any of you that have not been a part of this event I highly recommend it, it was a great time for a great cause! The evening raised over $18,000 for our Affiliate, money that will be granted back out into our community to provide a vessel in order for others to learn about, fight, and overcome breast cancer.
