Back in April Pat and Charles McEvoy hosted a kick-off party to announce the creation of the Celebrity Chef Luncheon. The only problem was that all the paperwork hadn’t been completed, so Luncheon Chair Alicia Wood couldn’t reveal who would be the headliner for the November 1st event at Brook Hollow Golf Club.
Ah, but now the ink is drying on the agreement, and it’s official. The award-winning blogger, #1 New York Times bestselling author of “The Pioneer Woman,” photographer, Food Network personality Ree Drummond will be featured at the fundraiser for the Food Allergy Center at Children’s Medical Center.
Honorary chairs will be Nancy Dedman and Rachael and Bob Dedman. As you may recall, the Dedmans were the driving force in the creation of the Center that has made a difference in so many lives.
“The Center wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Dedman family. Rachael and Bob’s daughter is just one of the 5.9 million children in the United States who suffer from food allergies and we are thrilled to have their support and participation in the event,” said Alicia.
BTW, in addition to all her numerous accomplishments, Ree is nearly a local gal, if you consider Oklahoma in the neighborhood. She is a ranch wife with four kiddos, all living on a working ranch just north of the Red River.
