‘Celebrity Chefs’ Event’ to benefit North Country Children’s Clinic
A popular spring event returns to the Clayton Opera House Friday, May 10.
North Country Children’s Clinic will hold its annual Celebrity Chefs’ Event, offering guests a gala river evening that includes a silent auction and food from the recipe files of some of the region’s most notable cooks.
This year’s culinary offerings are some of the favorite dishes of Coyote Moon Vineyard’s Phil and Mary Randazzo, USO’s Karen Clark, Samaritan Medical Center Foundation Director Beth Fipps, Freeman Bus Corporation and Clarence Henry Coach’s Rob Freeman, Timeless Frames’ Lisa Weber, and Bernier Carr’s Bernie Brown and his wife, Beverly.
To add to the festive atmosphere, the evening will feature “celebrity waiters,” including past recipients of NNY Business magazine’s “20 Under 40” honor, Jefferson Leadership Institute alumni, and other influential community members.
