Sammy Hagar, Alice Cooper and Vince Neil Join Chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Daniel Boulud, Charlie Palmer, Wylie Dufresne to Fight MSA

Sammy Hagar
A masterful list of superstars comes together for a spectacular fundraiser to support MSA (multiple system atrophy) awareness. The evening finds world-renowned chefs preparing a rock ‘n roll dine-around that reflects the spirit of Chef Kerry Simon and his passion for food, music and imagination (Pictured: Sammy Hagar – Photo: © Scott Harrison/ RETNA/ 

While the culinary team provides the bites, Kerry’s musician friends will band together onstage for the performance of a lifetime as guests rock, chow and mingle for a great cause.

Partnering with Keep Memory Alive, the charitable arm of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, Kerry and his supporters have put together an amazing night of electrifying music and gastronomic greatness to raise money for this important, and often ignored, cause.

This cocktail party, unlike any other, will feature chefs including Daniel Boulud, Kim Canteenwalla, Wylie DuFresne, Grant Macpherson, Michael Mina, Rick Moonen, Justin Nilson, Charlie Palmer, Megan Romano, Tony Schutz, Mark Tarbell and Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Rockers Alice Cooper, Sammy Hagar and Vince Neil join house band Sin City Sinners to entertain as supporters dine and imbibe. Special guest Sabriel will also perform during the party.

When: Thursday, Feb. 27

Where: Keep Memory Alive Event Center
