AIABaltimore Celebrity Chef Night

April 30, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join AIABaltimore for the 1st Annual Celebrity Chef Night

Tickets are limited!

Architects will have their culinary design prowess put to the test as they compete to create the best dish in the Fretz demonstration kitchen and theater! Each dish will be judged by a panel of celebrity chefs. This fun and festive evening will include samples of each chef’s creations:  hors d’oevres, main courses, and desserts, beer and wine, works of art created by architects in our silent auction, and a chance to win cash in our 50/50 raffle.

Our celebrity chef judges will also be conducting live cooking demonstrations during the event!

Proceeds of the event will be donated to the AIABaltimore and Baltimore Architectural Foundation’s scholarship programs for students of architecture at Morgan State University and Maryland community colleges and universities, as well as the Future Architects Resources outreach and education programs for underserved middle and high school students to encourage career opportunities in architecture, design, and construction.
