Now celebrating 20 years as the Orlando area's premier fine dining and wine paring charity event, this year's Chef's Gala will continue with the tradition at Walt Disney World's Epcot World Showcase. The annual event which is Heart of Central Florida United Way's major fundraiser, attracts over 1000 guests for a night of thoughtfully paired wine wines, live music and a dazzling silent auction.
More than 20 of the area's top chefs and establishments will be featured on May 19th at this year's event including some of the Disney Dining favorites of Artist Point, Flying Fish Cafe, , California Grill, Jiko - The Cooking Place and Raglan Road.
As Central Florida's most comprehensive health and human services charity and the largest provider of funds to the region's most critical health and human service programs, Central Florida United Way raised and managed $27.3 million throughout Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties. Walt Disney World's contributed an impressive $5.7 million which was raised among its cast members and corporate resources.
