Philadelphia, PA - The Garces Foundation announces the return of the 10th Anniversary Food Fest and Fundraiser on Thursday, September 29th, at LIVE! Hotel and Casino. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Garces Foundation's important work, providing crucial food, healthcare, education, and dental services to our immigrant neighbors in Philadelphia.
Stepping up the plate, dozens of the city's top chefs and restaurants will join James Beard Award Winner and Iron Chef Jose Garces for an amazing night of artful bites, seasonal sips, live music, dancing, silent auction, and more. The exciting line-up includes some of the biggest chefs in the city - as well as some exciting new fresh faces. Look for:
For the auction, look for some of the most coveted food experiences in the city - including a once-in-a-lifetime dinner for ten prepared by James Beard Award-winning chefs Marc Vetri, Greg Vernick, and Jose Garces, plus a dinner prepared by Christina Martinez and Jose Garces for the winner and friends. Chef Martinez of South Philly Barbacoa has many accomplishments and accolades, most recently winning a James Beard Award. The dinner will be held at Chef Garces' new food lab and private cooking studio.
Don't miss bidding on “Being a Chef for the Day” at Forsythia, where you will spend an afternoon in Forsythia’s kitchen with Chef Chris Kearse and dinner in the restaurant, enjoying the food you prepared together.
Thanks to the community's support, the Garces Foundation has provided more than $350,000 worth of dental care to over 900 patients in 2021 and fed nearly 20,000 families since the pandemic's start. Still, there is so much more to do.
