Celebrity Chef Gala

Celebrity Chef Gala

An event like no other -- for a great cause! 

We invite you to support an extraordinary evening to benefit WesleyLife Meals on Wheels as local celebrity chefs take you on a culinary journey your taste buds will never forget!  Donations raised through the WesleyLife 2018 Celebrity Chef Gala will directly impact the lives of thousands of nutrition-vulnerable older adults in greater Des Moines by supporting the daily delivery of hot, healthy meals to individuals who might otherwise go hungry.  

The Meals on Wheels Celebrity Chef Gala will feature some of Des Moines' most highly regarded chefs, including Sean Wilson (Proof), Joe Tripp (Harbinger), Shawn Bennigsdorf (Aposto), and Lynn Pritchard (Table 128), and pastry chef Catherine Drummond (BASH). Together, the celebrity chefs will create a multi-course culinary experience you won't want to miss.
