Chef's Ball

Chef’s Ball 2009
15th Annual Presidents Grand Ball
March 1, 2009 6:30 PM
Embassy Suites, Greensboro

American Culinary Federation Triad Chapter North Carolina (ACF Triad Chapter NC)

The ACF Presidents Grand Ball is an area wide gathering of professionals in, and aficionados of the Culinary Arts. It is held in various venues throughout the Triad to raise money for the Triad Community Kitchen, a program of the Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC that will offer job training to the chronically unemployed as well as prepare nourishing food products for member agencies that serve the less advantaged in our community. Money from this event also goes to the “Chef and Child” foundation, a not for profit branch of the ACF that fights childhood hunger through education, grants and crisis intervention programs; and to culinary programs at Guilford Technical Community College.

This year’s event will be at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Greensboro at 6:30 on Sunday, March 1st. Tickets are $60 per person, $100 per couple, or $400 for a table of ten. The ACF Triad Chapter’s Presidents Ball has raised over $125,000 toward this goal since it’s inception in the early 1990’s. If you love great food you cannot afford to miss this event. This year we seek to take it to the next level, with your help.

Events this year:
Culinary extravaganza prepared by the Triad’s Top Chefs.
Awarding of 2008 Triad “Chef of the Year”
Other local culinary awards
Live entertainment by the Wally West Quartet
Ice Sculptures by Fire and Ice as well as top ice carvers from around the Triad.
Proceeds from event will be distributed as follows:
1/3 to GTCC Culinary Technology Program Scholarship Fund
1/3 will support the Triad Community Kitchen, and The Chef and the Child Foundation.
1/3 to the general operating fund of the ACF Triad Chapter NC whose mission is to promote the culinary and hospitality industry through professional development and community involvement.
