Local top chefs take a bite out of childhood obesity
It’s the perfect recipe. Take 13 of the best and brightest chefs in a foodie-town and pair them up with Louie’s Kids children from various programs, who are either battling obesity or just trying to get or stay in shape. Then sit back with a glass of wine and watch the healthy (and delicious) food fly.
That’s exactly what to expect from the fifth annual Piggly Wiggly Little Chef, Big Chef event on Thursday, June 13 at the South Carolina Aquarium. The culinary competition raises funds for Louie’s Kids, a national nonprofit that helps treat childhood obesity as well as helps kids live a healthier more productive life in programs like RunBuddies. Event guests will have a chance to taste all 13 collaborative creations and vote for their favorite Big Chef, Little Chef duo. Tickets are available for $65 in advance, or $75 day of, and include beer provided by Southern Eagle and Palmetto Brewery and wine. Advance tickets can be purchased at all Charleston area Piggly Wiggly stores or online at Louieskids.org. Get live updates on Twitter with #LITTLECHEFBIGCHEF.
