Two Sold-Out Events, Six Incredible Chefs Raise Funds for the Arts
The kitchen is now closed on Chef Fest 2017 and thanks to the generosity of the 240 attendees over the two-night event, every fundraising goal was broken. All tolled, Chef Fest 2017 raised $81,145 to support Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, helping to ensure another season of amazing artists visiting local schools, summer camps, adult workshops and enriching performance offerings.
At the event, a new video featuring the Icicle Creek Visiting Artist Series, was unveiled. The first-ever Hot Stove Society demo night was held at Mana. We even had our first (and hopefully our last) Oscar moment – read more about that below.
HELP MAKE NEXT YEAR’S CHEF FEST EVEN BETTER
While Chef Fest 2017 was a resounding success, it was not without a few hiccups. The desserts went too fast, for example (all attendees were mailed a complimentary certificate to Cake Chic Studio after the event). We want to make Chef Fest better year after year, so we would love to hear what you thought. Take the short survey below to let us know what you think, and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a free pair of tickets to see The Paperboys on July 29!

The Grand Prize Raffle Prize this year, sponsored by Anderson Landscaping, was an all-expenses-paid trip to the beautiful Sundance Mountain Resort in Utah. Joe Anderson of Anderson Landscaping drew the ticket onstage to close the main Chef Fest event and the winning ticket belonged to a delighted young man by the name of Braden Mayfield.
When asked if he’d ever been to Utah before Braden responded, “I’ve never even been on vacation before!” Congratulations, Braden, and we hope you have a wonderful trip!
