We help with various aspects of these unique chef events, where world-famous chefs cook table-side for attendees and help to raise over $1 million each year. Our services have included confirming all attendees, managing the check-in process, recruiting and organizing the volunteers for the evening, and working with the chefs and vendors to help the chef event go off without a hitch. Learn more about the Celebrity Chef Gala here.

In 2012, we also helped with the auctions by tracking and organizing items for the silent and live auctions, including on-site checkout.

You are excellent at what you do.  Every time you are on a new project, I know it will be well-executed and nothing will fall through the cracks.  I appreciate every follow up email I get from you, even on my busiest of days!

In 2007, the inaugural Chef Gala was the first event to offer table-side cooking to over 370 people, and the event raised over $1.1 million for Autism Speaks. In addition to preparing and executing the run-of-show, arrangements for entertainers Darrell Hammond and Lisa Loeb were made and production was implemented $100,000 under budget.

Ginger was a go-to person for Autism Speaks during an important time of transition in our events department. One month before our first Chef Gala, she came on board to project manage the event logistics so that the committee could focus on it’s goal to raise over $1 million. Ginger then came on board to oversee the staff roles, timeline and logistics for the $1.8 million Concert for Autism Speaks featuring Lionel Richie and was instrumental in making the entire process flow smoothly. She has been an asset to our organization and I recommend her skills and services to others.
