5:00 PM Cocktails & Silent Auction
6:30 PM Gourmet Dinner
Each chef will create their own menu and prepare a five-course dinner table-side complete with complimenting wines for one table of ten guests. Each chef designs their own table setting to reflect their restaurant and personal flair using their own china, silver, crystal, and centerpieces. Flavors provides chefs the perfect opportunity to dazzle and show off their culinary talents.
We are proud these renowned chefs are working with the American Liver Foundation in our fight to promote awareness and raise money to promote liver health, disease prevention, education and research. There are now 17 Divisions of ALF across the country that have made Flavors an integral part of raising funds in their local community.
At no other event will guests witness these culinary experts creating a menu that goes above and beyond the usual restaurant fare. Flavors of Los Angeles gives chefs the perfect opportunity to expand their creative juices - and they do so with gusto!
Sponsorship opportunities are available! Please call 310-670-4624 for more information.
Tickets are $250.00 per person. All proceeds benefit the Foundation's programs of education, research, and advocacy for those affected by liver disease, including hepatitis.
