Chefs for Kids' Cancer

Chefs for Kids' Cancer - Charlotte is back! After a pandemic hiatus, we are ready to welcome you this fall with a new format and new venue for our annual Chef event. It’s going to be good and we are so excited to bring the Charlotte community together. This passionate group has raised enough to fund multiple research projects which have led to treatments kids from the Carolinas receive.


Contact Eve at with any questions you have about events. We’re here to help!

Award-winning chefs from across the region will gather to cook a one-of-a-kind multi-course meal for guests.

The evening kicks off with a cocktail reception featuring bites prepared by individual chefs and custom cocktails created by mixologists for this special night. Following the cocktail reception, guests will enjoy a multi-course meal with each course prepared by a different chef with a live demo. The dessert course will feature a team of pastry chefs capping off the evening. The event includes an art auction and live auction offering exclusive experiences. It’s going to be a night to remember as we come together as a community of Good Cookies. We can’t wait to welcome you back.
