There’s a bit of irony in the raffle item at Thursday’s Celebrity Chef Luncheon at Brook Hollow. In addition to having Ree “The Pioneer Woman” Drummond presenting her own style of cooking expertise, there is a delicious baguette being raffled off. It’s a Fendi baguette. No, it’s not something that La Madeleine will be carrying. Rather, Stanley Korshak’s Crawford Brock has arranged for an exquisite iridescent handbag with gold metallic handle and, of course, the Fendi logo on the clasp.
As if that isn’t enough, Crawford also managed to have Baguette Book “celebrating the 15th anniversary Fendi baguette autographed by the designers” added to the offering. The total package is valued at $2,000 with raffle tickets going for $50 per or five tickets for $200.
Plus, Luncheon Co-chair Alicia Wood has arranged for a second raffle item. It’s from Ree — all of her Williams-Sonoma favs including a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. For this one the tickets are $25 each or five for $100. Even if you can’t cook, this one just might inspire you to put on an apron and learn.
Proceeds from the luncheon are headed to the Food Allergy Center at Children’s Medical Center.
