The Great Chefs Event: June 8, 2019- Philadelphia, PA

The Great Chefs Event Philadelphia is the original ALSF culinary event featuring our chef partner, Marc Vetri and business partner Jeff Benjamin, and more than 40 of the best chefs from across the country and around the world. Guests will enjoy the daytime, family-friendly format, along with delicious food, all while getting up close and personal with their favorite chefs. Attendees can try out any of the chef dishes while also bidding on fabulous auction items.

Liz & Jay Scott, co-executive directors of ALSF, will also share their daughter’s story and how she inspired a national fundraising movement leading to innovative childhood cancer research. You will also be introduced to a childhood cancer hero family and learn how ALSF-funded research is impacting the lives of kids fighting cancer. 

Individual tickets to The Great Chefs Event Philadelphia are $195 ($95 tax-deductible). For more information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Sarah Hincken at S.Hincken@AlexsLemonade.org.
