All proceeds from Cooking for the Kids benefit Overflowing Hands, a 100% volunteer-led 501c3 organization serving the most vulnerable children in our neighborhoods, across the United States, and around the world. Resources are used to support communities in a special, personal way, from fighting food insecurity to providing clothing, shelter and healthcare to children.

Each chef will prepare an appetizer, main course and a dessert for guests, judges and sponsors.
Each evening features secret ingredients that the chefs must incorporate into the dishes. Behind
the scenes: Chefs arrive at 1705 East at 9:00 a.m. the day of their competition. They learn the
secret ingredients upon arrival and must have menus written by 10:00 a.m. Chef teams are
required to surrender all electronic including cell phones, tablets and laptops to the chef refs until
the end of the competition to maintain the integrity of the competition.
Guests and culinary judges will vote on each course to decide which chef that evening advances
to the next round.

A cash bar will feature beer, wine and cocktails with all proceeds going to Overflowing Hands.
A silent auction will be held throughout the series of competitions. Anyone may place bids on the
auction items, and the highest bidder will be determined at the finale.

Opportunities are available for Presenting ($10,000), Gold ($7,500) and Silver ($5,000) Sponsors
as well as Table Sponsors. For more information contact Chandler Ellis at
