I don’t know about you, but when the quake and tsunami hit Japan, my eyes were glued to CNN and my heart broke when I saw images of the devastation. There were heart wrenching photos of children crying, people left homeless, and a country in shock. With news of yet another quake that affected Japan today, the time to help is now!
A bunch of Top Chef alums, led by the original Stiletto Chef, Candice Kumai, are participating in a benefit Eat, Pray, Heal Japan: A Night to Benefit the Children of Japan next Thursday, April 14, 2011 at the Bowery Hotel in NYC. It will be an evening to remember with celebrity chefs, light bites, music, open bar and a silent auction. All proceeds will benefit UNICEF and the tickets are $75 before the event, $100 at the door. C’mon – you know a decent pair of stilettos will run you much more than that.
Some of the Top Chef family that will be in attendance are Candice Kumai, Harold Dieterle, Angelo Sosa, Hung Huynh, Mike Isabella, Kevin Sbraga, Lee Ann Wong and Top Chef: Desserts Seth Caro. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Bowery Hotel, 335 Bowery, New York, NY 10003. Tickets can be purchased and donations made through the event link HERE.
So please, won’t you help – it’s the least we can do to send a helping hand across the ocean.
