Top Chef Reconcile 2018
Sunday, October 14, 2018
Top Chef Reconcile is an exciting cooking competition fundraiser benefiting Cafe Reconcile. Six teams comprised of a Reconcile program alum, a homecook fundraiser, and a professional chef will each plan and prepare a unique dish featuring a secret ingredient.
Teams will be judged both by a culinary panel as well as by attendees on presentation, taste, incorporation of ingredient, and - most importantly - funds raised both before and at the event!
All proceeds from the event will help Reconcile support students and alumni who are working hard to find stability and self-sufficiency for themselves and their families.
5:30 pm Patron Party $125 per ticket
6:30 pm General Admission $75 per ticket
Dress: Cocktail Casual
Complimentary valet parking - open bar - limited vegetarian options
