On March 2, 2017 guests were treated to an evening of food and fun at Food Bank for the Heartland’s 16th annual Celebrity Chef fundraiser. Presented by Conagra Brands with KETV serving as the media sponsor, Celebrity Chef was held at the Embassy Suites Conference Center in La Vista. KETV Newswatch 7 anchor Alexandra Stone was the Celebrity Chef emcee.
The event raised $375,000 to help feed children, families and seniors in need across the Food Bank’s 93-county service area. Donations made during the evening were matched by WoodmenLife up to $35,000.
Restaurateur, television star and author Marc Murphy charmed the audience and showcased his talents during a culinary presentation at the event. He demonstrated recipes for an Omaha Steaks skirt steak with spaghetti alla carbonara and grilled romaine topped with a roasted tomato salsa then presented the dishes to guests seated at the special tasting table on stage. In addition to Marc Murphy’s cooking demonstration, attendees enjoyed Jackson Family Wines provided by Republic National Distributing Company and appetizers from local restaurants.
