Virtual Cook-Along Featuring Celebrity Chef Gregory Gourdet
SAN FRANCISCO, April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hope for Haiti announced that Haitian-American celebrity Chef Gregory Gourdet (of Bravo TV's 'Top Chef') will headline the organization's virtual cook-along celebration Monday, 4/25. The event is part of the organization's fourth-annual Hike for Haiti Challenge campaign, a feel-good global movement that helps fund Hope for Haiti's education and public health programs, and is supported by a number of brands and high-profile ambassadors. The cook-along will be hosted by culinary emcee and comedian, Billy Harris, and also features mixologist Vance Henderson, a special surprise guest, and a small live auction.
"We are cooking one of my favorite dishes growing up, Chicken in Creole sauce and a delicious easy treat, Shaved Coconut Ice with Spiced Pineapple," said Gourdet. "We'll have a great time cooking together in support of Hope for Haiti and the Hike for Haiti initiative!"
All of the funds raised during the dinner + auction will directly benefit Hope for Haiti's school rebuilding efforts in southern Haiti, the epicenter of last year's devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake. In February, Hope for Haiti completed construction on one of the first schools to be built in southern Haiti post-earthquake.
"We're honored to have Chef Gregory Gourdet lead this virtual celebration of impact and hope in Haiti," said Hope for Haiti CEO Skyler Badenoch.
Complimentary access to the event will be provided to all registered participants or donors to the Hike for Haiti Challenge. Tickets for the general public are available on a 'pay what you can' model here: http://give.hopeforhaiti.com/hikedinner.
