Cooks For Books 2014



Some stories are so good, they demand a sequel.

Last year over 250 foodies, book lovers and friends of Brighton Place gathered once again for our premier fundraiser--Cooks for Books. The event showcased the culinary talents of renowned local chefs from superb restaurants. This year promises not to disappoint as our food, our prizes and our fun continue to grow. Six chefs will tempt our taste buds this year, including, J.J. Richert from Torches and Smoke on the Water and the Garage, and Mike Andrzewski of Mike A's, Seabar, Tappo's, and Cantinaa Loco.

So by popular demand, Cooks for Books is back--May 8 at Banchetti by Rizzo's. In addition to fabulous food and open bar, we will also have a silent and live auction, great raffles and outstanding live entertainment.
