“Through community supporters like Brown Blankfeld Group, our education programs are made possible,” said Chef Christopher Johns, Chairman of Chefs for Kids. “You’ll want to sign up next time because this team gets creative with famous fun holes that have you teeing off with various kitchen items like a cheese grater. It takes the game to a whole new level of fun and philanthropy.”
Chefs for Kids, in partnership with the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension and ACF Chefs of Las Vegas provides a year-long nutrition education program to students in 13 at-risk schools in Clark County.
