TV’s Top Chefs & Tastemakers @ 24th Great Chefs Go Green Go Organic




One of the city's most anticipated culinary extravaganzas, the 24th Annual Great Chefs of Los Angeles "Go Green, Go Organic," event brings together L.A.'s top tastemakers for an afternoon of food, wine, music and auctions to benefit the National Kidney Foundation serving Southern California and Southern Nevada. GCLA draws more than 800 food-frenzied revelers each year, and has raised more than $4.5 million for the foundation since its inception in 1987.


Taking center stage as Host Chefs are Top Chef's Chef Stefan Richter (Stefan's at LA Farm) and The Stiletto Chef, Candice Kumai of TLC's "Home Made Simple," who join Chef of Honor Jimmy Shaw (Loteria) and 944 Magazine in the celebration of LA's top toques, presenting awards to fellow outstanding chefs and charitable colleagues. Event highlights include the "Beer Chick's Beer Garden" where Beer Sommelier and author Christina Perozzi will tap a fine selection local craft brews, Border Grill's Taco Truck, celebrity DJ Mike Palmieri, Silent & Live Auctions & much more.

GLCA 2010 spotlights Michael L. Klausman, Sr.V.P., West Coast Operations & Engineering President of CBS Studio Center with the Chef Star Humanitarian Award, presented for outstanding community leadership, ardent support and generous contributions toward the fight against kidney disease and the work of the National Kidney Foundation. Klausman's generosity in the past 3 years has enabled the NKFSC to raise nearly a half million dollars to fund critical NKFSC&SN programs, affording children and their families the ability to attend the Children's Painted Turtle Summer Camp, Teen Summer Camp at Mammoth Mountain & Fall Family Camp.
