The Dinner & Live Auction

portion of the evening will start at 7:30 pm where special guest Billy Harris (Hanging with Harris, Billy Harris Dinner Series) will wow as the lively M.C. for the evening.

While guests enjoy a multi-course dinner prepared by six of L.A.’s most talented and diverse chefs, all of whom give their time to support C-CAP Los Angeles students and alumni, an organization they are all very passionate about.

Chef Michael Hung

Executive Chef Michael Hung from Faith & Flower treasures his involvement with C-CAP Los Angeles and believes:

“C-CAP is an incredibly valuable organization. Training in the culinary arts requires discipline and develops creativity.

Chef Sherry Yard

“…Learning about food helps to teach students their connection to our farms, to the earth, and to life. In our modern, media-driven world, these character attributes and values are slipping from us in the technological ether, but food and cooking are visceral activities that remind us that there are values that are important to becoming a better human.”

Chef Hilary Henderson

The Winter Gala will raise funds to directly benefit C-CAP L.A.’s career readiness programs for underserved high school culinary students in Southern California, which in turn creates more experienced and valued candidates in the culinary industry.
