The 12th Annual Great Chefs Event - June 20th

The 12th Annual Great Chefs Event is on Tuesday, June 20th from 6-9 p.m.



The Great Chefs Event began in 2006 by partners Marc Vetri and Jeff Benjamin to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a local non-profit that raises funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research. In 2008, Vetri and Benjamin founded Vetri Community Partnership, which helps provide healthy school lunch and nutrition education to Philadelphia youth.

Today, the event is a dual fundraiser for the two nonprofits, raising more than $700,000 in 2016, which marked its 11th year. The event brings dozens of high-profile chefs from across the country and around the world to the unique space of Urban Outfitters, Inc.’s corporate campus in Philadelphia for an evening of fun, food and charity. We were thrilled to have approximately 1200 people in attendance.
