The Annual Chefs for Gemma Benefit a Success!

Chefs for Gemma 2023 a Great Success!

Thank you to all who supported our Chefs for Gemma benefit held on Friday, April 28, 2023. More than 300 guests enjoyed an evening of robust bidding on almost 100 fantastic auction items, a delicious meal designed and presented by the talented Chef Amanda Shulman of Her Place Supper Club pulled together beautifully by Green Valley Country Club, and an inspiring program about the children and families we are honored to support. To view the video, we debuted at the event, please visit our YouTube page here. Please watch our Facebook and Instagram pages for pictures of the evening. Thank you to all sponsors, and auction donors, too, who helped make it possible for 15th annual Chefs for Gemma benefit to raise crucial funds for Gemma’s work.
