(Avon, CT) – Golf Kitchen announces its second dinner event, which will be held on March 30, 2017, at Cassique at the Kiawah Island Club, to celebrate Golf Kitchen and the talented chefs in the golf club industry.
"We couldn't be more excited to host the second Golf Kitchen event here at Voysey's at Cassique," said Doug Blair, Executive Chef at the Kiawah Island Club. "The first event last fall at the Winged Foot Golf Club was a huge success, and we look forward to bringing the same caliber of chefs to Voysey's for this event in honor of Golf Kitchen and the James Beard Foundation."
Diana DeLucia, who will share both her vision and incredible journey from concept to launch at the dinner, remarked, "As a member of the culinary scene for many years, I am indeed honored to be hosting my second Friends of James Beard Benefit. I am truly grateful for the support of each and every golf club and resort that I have worked with globally, not only in Golf Kitchen but in my other publications as well. It's been a long and rewarding journey to get here."
Friends of James Beard Benefits are held by chefs and restaurants who want to help the next generation of great American chefs. Chefs have the opportunity to stage a high-profile event that supports James Beard Foundation scholarships and other culinary programs.
"We are very thankful that proceeds from the auction will benefit our Foundation," said Susan Ungaro, President of the James Beard Foundation. "Funds from the evening's auction will go to various Foundation initiatives, including the James Beard Foundation Scholarship Program, which is awarding more than $750,000 in financial aid that was raised in 2016, the largest annual total in the Foundation's history."
