Non-profit organization FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) will host its 7th annual “Chefs Up Front” fundraising dinners this August at The Biltmore in Coral Gables and the W Fort Lauderdale in Fort Lauderdale. The epicurean event will present decadent five-course dinners prepared by 10 of South Florida’s most acclaimed chefs. One hundred percent of proceeds will benefit Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters™ Program, which connects families with healthy food by teaching them how to prepare nutritious, tasty meals on a limited budget.
FLIPANY is a Florida partner of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Share Our Strength is a national nonprofit that is working to end child hunger in America through its No Kid Hungry campaign, implemented by FLIPANY at a local level (i.e. Broward and Dade counties).
The evening, hosted by radio personalities Kimmy B. of Hits 97.3, Julie Guy and Evelyn Curry of 101.5 LITE FM; long-time FLIPANY supporters, will begin with a special reception and silent auction, while hors d’oeuvres and specialty cocktails are served.
Following the reception, each chef will prepare signature courses in an intimate dinner setting.

Each Executive Chef heads a table of 10 guests and present a 5-course, wine-paired dinner created for this event. What separates this event from other tastings and food events is the wine-pairing component and the direct interaction between the chef and attendees.
An after party will follow, when guests can mingle with each other and the chefs.
