Local chefs and their students will showcase their culinary skills at the inaugural Chefs Gone Wild fundraiser at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 21, at the Muddy Rudder in Brewer. Proceeds from the event will support both local cancer patients and local culinary students.
A five-course meal will be prepared at the table side and served by the chefs themselves. The evening also includes live entertainment and a raffle. The gala dinner is the first in a series of Chefs Gone Wild events, highlighting local restaurants while raising funds for the Oncology Support Project of Healthcare Charities at Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems and the local chapter of the American Culinary Foundation.
The Oncology Support Project of Healthcare Charities provides direct assistance to local cancer patients and their families who may be facing medical, financial and emotional challenges.
Tickets are $50. To purchase tickets, or for more information about Chefs Gone Wild, call Healthcare Charities at 973-5055.
