Chefs Aaron Crumbaugh and David McCampbell, flanking "Top Chef" contestant and event emcee Chef Chad White, battled in the kitchen to raise funds for The Junior League of Spokane's Red Hot Night on Feb. 18 at the Spokane Convention Center. The inaugural event, featuring New Orleans-style cuisine, music by Soul Proprietor, aerial performers and both live and silent auctions, netted approximately $20,000 to benefit the League and their childhood literacy projects. jlspokane.org
