Marc Vetri Hosts Annual Great Chefs Event at Navy Yard
More than 1,200 guests attended the 10th annual Great Chefs Event on Tuesday, June 9th. The yearly eating party thrown by Philadelphia super-chef Marc Vetri was held at Urban Outfitters in the Navy Yard, with proceeds going to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand fight childhood cancer, and to the Vetri Foundation for Children. Neuroblastoma took Alex Scott’s life when she was eight, and her parents, Jay and Liz Scott, carry on her goal of helping doctors find a cure for the disease.
The event attracts four dozen top chefs from the U.S. and Italy who created delicious dishes and desserts, and features both a live and a silent auction — which included clothing, lavish trips, sports tickets and experiences — that raises nearly $100,000 every year.
