The exclusive Jonathan Club, L.A.’s premier social club located in Downtown Los Angeles, once again welcomes and hosts the C-CAP Los Angeles Winter Gala Benefit with an exciting lineup of All-Star Chefs to directly benefit the Los Angeles Chapter of Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) on Saturday, February 1st, 2020 from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm!
The participating chefs and fellow C-CAP supporters include Jason McClain (Philly Jay’s Food Truck), Austin Cobb (The Strand House), Hilary Henderson (CUT), Michael Hung, (Faith & Flower), Mei Lin (Nightshade), and Sherry Yard (The Great American Baking Show), all coming together for one very special evening where guests will enjoy an incredible multi-course tasting menu paired with specially selected wines. This year celebrates C-CAP’s 30th Year Anniversary and the successful years of making dreams come true, making this a celebratory evening for all members and guests!
The evening will start with a Cocktail Reception at 6:30 pm featuring delectable hors d’oeuvres, premium wines, craft beer, sparkling wine, and specialty handcrafted cocktails created by Jonathan Club Beverage Director Brian Summers, celebrating the pre-Prohibition days of the club for a unique experience.
The Dinner & Live Auction portion of the evening will start at 7:30 pm where special guest Billy Harris (Hanging with Harris, Billy Harris Dinner Series) will wow as the lively M.C. for the evening, while guests enjoy a multi-course dinner prepared by six of L.A.’s most talented and diverse chefs, all of whom give their time to support C-CAP Los Angeles students and alumni, an organization they are all very passionate about. Executive Chef Michael Hung from Faith & Flower treasures his involvement with C-CAP Los Angeles and believes “C-CAP is an incredibly valuable organization. Training in the culinary arts requires discipline and develops creativity. Learning about food helps to teach students their connection to our farms, to the earth, and to life. In our modern, media-driven world, these character attributes and values are slipping from us in the technological ether, but food and cooking are visceral activities that remind us that there are values that are important to becoming a better human.” The Winter Gala will raise funds to directly benefit C-CAP L.A.’s career readiness programs for underserved high school culinary students in Southern California, which in turn creates more experienced and valued candidates in the culinary industry.
