Night 4 of ChefDance with Iron Chef Cat Cora, hosted by Skyler Griswold, proved a record-breaking success with over $30,000 raised for the benefit of Operation Smile this year.
Guests raved over Chef Cora’s menu, including a Roasted Eggplant pepper soup topped with a curried cotton candy, followed by a delicious Basque Beef Tenderloin atop Black truffle risotto. Skyler delivered a powerful speech on discrimination which had our guests on their feet with applause. Ryan Innes of The Voice also performed soulful ballads for ChefDance diners, among them, Kevin Bacon, John cho, Parker Posey, Director Kogonada, Rory Culkin and Haley Lu Richardson.
