Join AIABaltimore for the 2nd Annual Celebrity Chef Night
Tickets are limited
Celebrity Chef Night returns! Architects will have their culinary design prowess put to the test as they compete to create the best dish: hors d’oeuvres, main course, or dessert. Each dish is judged by a local celebrity chef and by you the guests.
This fun and festive evening will include samples of each chef’s creation, beer and wine, and a chance to win cash in our 50/50 raffle. There will be a silent auction with paintings and jewelry made by local architects, restuarant/wine packages, golf lessons, Orioles tickets and more!
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 Architecture 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/Kids in Design outreach and education programs for underserved middle and high school students to encourage career opportunities in architecture, design, and construction.
We are accepting canned good during the event to be donated to the Maryland Food Bank. Bring canned food!
