Chefs Up Front Is Thursday Night at W. Fort Lauderdale

Knowing your dinner tab is going to help kids and families who are in need is one way to get the warm and fuzzies (pairing your meal with a glass or two of red is another). FLIPANY's Chefs Up Front dinner raises funds for a worthy org -- Share Our Strength's Cooking Matters program, courtesy of FLIPANY -- and gives diners a chance to rub elbows with some of the region's top names in food.

Watch as one of ten chefs -- including Adrianne Calvo, Howie Kleinberg, and Marc Gruverman -- prepares a meal tableside just for you and nine other companions. Specially paired wines are included. The fundraising event is 6 p.m. Thursday at W. Fort Lauderdale Hotel. Tickets cost $150 per person or $1,500 per table, which may mean a choice of chef if available.
