Save the Date! 19th Annual Chef’s Gala Coming Up on May 21st

With only three months to go, we’re really starting to gear up for Chef’s Gala, United Way’s largest special event fundraiser of the year.

If you have never attended Chef’s Gala, it  is an elegant food and wine pairing event that continues to grow in reputation each year. Held at Epcot® World Showcase, Chef’s Gala features great food and wine, live music and a silent auction, all for a great cause.

By clicking here to view photos  from last year’s event, you can see that the chefs really outdid themselves. Thanks to their efforts, as well as the generosity of Disney − our host and sponsor for the past 19 years −  and other sponsors, a full 95% of all dollars raised went  to help Central Floridians in need.

As always, the list of participating restaurants is amazing. This year’s list includes, The Capital Grille, La Luce by Donna Scala, Le Cellier Steakhouse, Narcoossee’s, Primo by Melissa Kelly and nearly 20 others.

So if you love great food and wine and want to give back, be sure to mark your calendars for this year’s Chef’s Gala on Saturday, May 21. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 4.

For more information about tickets, call (407) 429-2129 or email chefsgala@hfuw. For sponsorship information, contact Marta Vargas at (407) 835-0923 or email

In this time of urgent need, Chef’s Gala is truly… A TASTEFUL WAY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
