VNA President/CEO Katherine Krause will be spending her birthday celebrating all day on Wednesday, February 28. It seems that the staff once again scheduled VNA’s 8th Annual Celebrity Chef fundraiser at VNA Haggerty Center on her natal day.
The evening event is already sold out and the lunchtime is just seats away from the same status.
There are so many reasons why it’s on the verge of being a done deal. In addition to having Mary Frances Bellman and CiCi Weinmann co-chairing the two-in-one day fundraisers, they’ve arranged to have Bess and Ted Enloe as honorary co-chairs.
Still another reason for the swift sell-out and almost sold-out is the featured chefs, who will be doing a cooking demonstration and orchestrating the meals. Yes, it will be a twosome — the husband/wife team of Nicole Krasinski and Stuart Brioza.
In addition to their recently released “State Bird Provisions” cookbook and industry recognition by the James Beard Foundation and Bon Appétit to mention a couple, they own two of San Francisco’s top restaurants — Michelin-starred State Bird Provisions and The Progress in San Francisco.
These meals are always fun and eye-opening for the professional chef and the Hello Fresh novice.
