Chef's Best Banner

Thanks to over 700 attendees and all of our sponsors and supporters, our 2018 Chef's Best presented by Harris Teeter event raised $224,000!

Special thanks to Maureen O'Boyle from WBTV News for joining us again as our emcee and also to Jon Wilson from WCCB Charlotte - The CW for joining us as our auctioneer.

Our auction would not have been possible without the generous support of each of the companies, organizations, and individuals who secured and donated items - a huge thank you to each of them.
