We are excited to announce that, in addition to our stunning chef lineup, we will be joined by Kathy Hart, co-host of Eric & Kathy on The Mix 101.9 fm and our friend Adrian Grenier (aka Mr. A,) fresh from the premier of the Entourage movie on Wednesday, June 3rd.

Ms. Hart will lead the event’s live auction, with some help from Mr. Grenier, who has generously donated his time for one of our auction items. Ms. Hart, an advocate for holistic wellness, including mindfulness and the importance of nutrition, topics our students learn about at AGC. Mr. Grenier, a passionate advocate for sustainable food and lifestyles, visited AGC this winter and has joined our Net Positive energy campus campaign as an advisor.

Our live auction will feature a trip to a Southern weekend food festival, including flights and a stay in a hip new eco-hotel; a private dinner cooked in your home by a group of award winning chefs; and a trip for you and your friends to hang with celebrity food and sustainability advocates on the East Coast. Silent auction items include a year of good food from Chipotle, Izze and O.N.E Coconut water, custom clothing from Wilfred Newman and Frederick Lynn, designer furniture from Holly Hunt, and lots of great food experiences!

Currently, only 21 VIP and 41 General Admission tickets remain. Sets of 6 are sold out. Get your tickets today at www.chefsplayground.org. Tickets will run out! 100% of ticket sales and funds raised at this event go directly to supporting innovation in education at the Academy for Global Citizenship.
