Mr. Norah O’Donnell (aka husband Chef Geoff Tracy) is heading up the 14th Annual St. Judes Gourmet Gala on Feb. 21. It’s an annual gathering of Washington’s best chefs to raise money for the children’s hospital.
More than 40 local chefs will join the event, with each creating a special dish. Attendees will vote on their favorite dish at the end of the evening. “It’s an honor to share our talents at an event that will help St. Jude find answers to save the lives of countless children,” the canned Tracy says in a statement. “On a lighter note [because there is always a lighter note in stories like this] the gala presents the perfect setting for collaboration among some of the industry’s best and a friendly competition to produce the perfect dish.”
For the bargain price of $350, you could help eliminate childhood cancers with ingredients like locally raised essence of aromatic wild mushroom foam or whatever passes for fancy food these days. For tickets and more information, visit here.
