Marc Vetri and company are throwing another Great Chefs Event on Tuesday, June 11 at the Navy Yard headquarters of Urban Outfitters. It's sold out.
The fundraiser typically brings in $1 million for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and the Vetri Foundation for Children.
This year's batch of auction items is impressive. The live auction - to be held that night - will include a meal at Vetri for six guests with Tom Colicchio and "A Place at the Table" director Lori Silverbush; a culinary trip to Venice and Bergamo with Vetri and chef Jeff Michaud; a "Sbraga/DeBragga" lunch for eight at DeBragga prepared by Kevin Sbraga; a barbecue for 30 people catered by Percy Street; and a takeover of the forthcoming Pizzeria Vetri by James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Bianco for 25 people.
Bidding is on right now for a bunch of other great experiences, including a visit by Vetri's pop, Sal, and chef Brad Spence, who will cook an Italian American meal in your home for eight to 10 guests; a day with Vetri's sister, Montgomery County DA Risa Vetri Ferman; and a meal with Inquirer critic Craig LaBan.
