When you combine twenty-five chefs and four hundred guests with an incredible cause at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, the result is pure magic!
In May, guests were treated to a culinary journey courtesy of the best chefs in the region in support of a cause near and dear to their hearts. This important fundraiser provides vital programs and services for cancer patients and their families. This years’ fundraising event exceeded expectations and raised a net total of $138,255. One hundred percent of these proceeds will fund Patient and Family Programs at the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center.
Joan Davis, local artist, Randy Sater and Mike Isle, from Teichert Construction, and Alison Elder of Chase International, shared their experiences of the challenges of cancer through a video sponsored by Teichert. Randy’s heartfelt statement, “A little is enough if enough people do it!” was the call to action and inspired guests to make donations during the Community Generosity portion of the event.
Since 2009, Best of Tahoe Chefs has raised over $1,200,000. Be sure to save the date for Best of Tahoe Chefs 2017 on Sunday, May 21, 2017
