Chefs for Change: April 21

Remember the fundraiser scene in "Friends with Money" which pokes at the irony of donors who won't open their checkbooks unless the charitable organization throws a lavish party? If you'd prefer to see 100% of your ticket proceeds go directly to those in need, monthly Chefs for Change dinners do exactly that.

The dinners take place at People Serving People, a Minneapolis organization that helps the homeless. Each event offers a "chef’s table" experience for 25-30 guests, with a multi-course meal with wine pairings. Chefs and their restaurants donate thousands of dollars worth of food and labor for the events so proceeds can go directly to people in need--and, during the evening, guests may tour PSP's home for families--and, if they choose, make an additional donation.

The next one takes place Monday, April 21, and costs $75. You can order tickets here.
