The money raised through Chef’s Challenge® supports care and research in women’s cancers at Mount Sinai Hospital. With your support, physicians and researchers can investigate new approaches to prevent, diagnose and treat women’s cancers, bringing us closer to a cure. Funds will help: Support women’s cancer research at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute at Mount Sinai Hospital - one of the leading biomedical research facilities in the world, bringing a healthier future to Canadians through breakthroughs in health and disease. Advance the work of the Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre -a premiere facility specializing in breast health and disease that helps 33,000 women every year. A remarkable kitchen stadium sets the tone for a true culinary melee as celebrity chefs lead fundraisers into the epicurean battle of their lives, all for the opportunity to oust Chef Lynn Crawford, who led her team to a second victory in 2012. To attend this exclusive culinary fundraising event, participants must raise a minimum of $2,500 to watch the battle unfold as a gala guest. Guests will dine on an Italian feast inspired by Giada De Laurentis’ culinary creations. Guests may also be able to get in on the culinary action and have the opportunity to participate in tableside challenges and compete against other gala guests. The top 50 fundraisers, who have raised $2,500 or more, will earn the privilege to test their chef’s skills live on stage alongside their team and celebrity chefs, all while under the watchful eye of Giada De Laurentiis.
