FLIPANY ‘Chefs Up Front’ Fundraising Dinners Kick-Off

Posted on: May 23rd, 2017 by

FLIPANY ‘Chefs Up Front’ Fundraising Dinners Kick-OffTuesday, May 9, 5pm-7pm – Beaker & Gray, 2637 N Miami Ave, Miami Wynwood Arts District
Tuesday, May 23, 5pm-7pm – Royal Pig Pub, 350 E Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale

The non-profit organization FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) is hosting an intimate evening of hors d’oeuvres and a complimentary cocktail at the two Chefs Up Front Kick-off events to announce details of its annual ‘Chefs Up Front’ 2017 fundraising dinners. This is an exclusive event reserved for previous event attendees, board members, chefs and media. FLIPANY is a Florida partner of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Share Our Strength is a national nonprofit that is working to end child hunger in America through its No Kid Hungry campaign, implemented by FLIPANY at a local level (i.e. Broward and Dade counties). 

Chefs Up Front is a unique dining experience where celebrated chefs create and prepare a five-course dinner table-side, paired with wine, for individual tables of 10. What separates this event from other tastings and food events is the wine-pairing component and the direct interaction between the chef and his or her table of 10. It is a very intimate, exclusive experience for both the chefs and the guests. Prior to the dinner, there is a silent auction with hors d’oeuvres and an open bar. After the dinner, there is an after party for the chefs to thank them for their time and efforts. 

The seventh annual Chefs Up Front dinners will be at The Biltmore Hotel Coral Gables on Friday, August 18th and at The W Fort Lauderdale Hotel on Friday, August 25th.
All monies earned from the decadent sit-down dinner, reception and auction assist FLIPANY in its mission to provide nutrition education, access to healthy food and physical activity to youths in South Florida. They reach more than 6,200 children each day via the Cooking Matters Program. For more information about the event and/or sponsorships, donations and more, contact Angie Rodriguez at arodriguez@flipany.org or 954-636-2388.
