The "Celebrity Chef Extravaganza" was held earlier this year entertaining nearly 100 guests who together had purchased this special auction item at Woodforest Charitable Foundation's 2013 Connoisseurs for Charity fundraising event.

All proceeds from the amount raised from the "Celebrity CHef Extravaganza" auction item benefited Boys and Girls Country to the tune of $300,000, which was presented to the charity's representatives at the dinner party. In addition, the five celebrity chefs each donated a unique, one-of-a-kindchef experience for the children at Boys and Girls Country that evening.
