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.
