$10,000 Scholarship to Be Awarded at May 1 Event Benefitting The Giving Kitchen

WHAT:                      The second annual Atlanta chefs’ charity event will be hosted at Umi by an all-star lineup including Fuyuhiko and Lisa Ito, Gerry Klaskala, Joey Ward, Asha Gomez, Bruce Logue, Todd Ginsberg, Billy Allin, Todd Mussman, Landon Thompson, Adam Evans, Phillipe Haddad, Matt Weinstein and Christopher Maher.

Last year’s successful release party for the book "Atlanta Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the Big Peach" sold out in under an hour and raised over $15,000 for The Giving Kitchen. Now author Kate Parham Kordsmeier and photographer Heidi Geldhauser have joined forces again to host this event to honor the late photographer Emily Cameron. 

                                   This year’s event will be an unforgettable evening of top chefs, many recently recognized by The New York Times, working together to prepare a multi-course dinner with wine pairings. Best of all, guests can enjoy a front-row view from communal tables overlooking the sushi bar, watching their favorite chefs team up for what promises to be one of the most outstanding meals of the year.

The evening will also include a $10,000 art scholarship awarded to a service industry worker pursuing a career in the arts, given in honor of Cameron. Artists interested in applying for the scholarship can find more information here. All additional proceeds from the event will benefit The Giving Kitchen, which provides crisis grants to members of Atlanta’s restaurant community facing unanticipated hardship.
