Last year's 18th Annual Guest Chef Gainesville was record-breaking!
We raised $70,000 and had 400 guests attend, 35 Chefs, and over 30 volunteers! Thank you to everyone who participated or helped spread the word about the event.
This year will look a LOT different, but we hope with your support will break more records as we raise critical funds to support victims of domestic violence in our community. This format will allow us to share our message with more people than ever before and bring more awareness to both issue and our services. Through our mobile bidding platform, the auction/fund a cause will be available for more peole that ever before from the comfort of your home!
The 19th Annual Guest Chef Gainesville presented by Cox Communications will be re-imagined this year into a virtual fundraiser.
Due to Covid-19 crisis and with public safety at the core of our mission, we have decided to cancel the in person event previously scheduled at the Cade Museum and move to a digital fundraising format. Yes, we are disappointed, but we do have good news!
We have an amazing line up of auction items that will be available for you to bid from any computer or mobile device. SAVE THE DATE!
If you would like to participate in the auction, visit our event website guestchefgainesville.com to find more information and the link to create an account. We hope you will join us in October for a spirited bidding event where you get to shop for a great cause.
We are thankful to our 35 home chefs, including our two featured chefs Melanie Shore and Bobbie Robinson, for their advocacy and support for our cause. Although we won't get to taste their dishes this year at the Cade, we will post the link to a digital download of our keepsake cookbook sponsored by BBI Construction so you can try them at home. Printed Cookbooks will also be available for purchase from our auction link. We will also share video clips of our chefs from their own kitchen. Stay tuned for that! Click HERE for a full list or our chefs and our virtual menu.
We want to thank our Title Sponsor, Cox Communications and the 25+ other sponsors that have helped to make this year's event a success through their financial and public support. Thank you for taking a stance against violence in our community. Click HERE for a full list of our sponsors.
