The 25th annual Chef’s Culinary Classic raised $81,000 for Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital on January 28, 2017. The sold out, black-tie Children's Miracle Network event at The Historic Davenport Hotel featured a Champagne Social Hour with gourmet starters by Chef Jeremy Hansen, followed by an exquisite six course dinner prepared by Chefs Joshua Martin, Jim Wolters, Bob Lombardi, Peter Tobin and Curtis Smith, as well as faculty and students of Inland Northwest Culinary Academy, two WSU culinary students and a Pro Start high school student. Proceeds will fund pediatric equipment, provide services for families and support pediatric sub-specialty clinic with diabetes equipment and educational materials for patients and families.
