The soiree hosted a packed house, raising enough money to provide 2,343 meals to locals who look to Three Square for assistance. Rock ‘n’ roll Chef Simon mingled with guests as they sampled his Iron Chef sliders, popcorn shrimp, BLT chicken sliders, Captain Crunch milkshakes, cotton candy, assorted cupcakes and specialty cocktails, among other offerings. The evening wrapped up with a raffle with items donated by Stoli, AEG Live, Macallan, Amstel Light, Cointreau, Terlato Wines International and others, with all the money going directly to local charity Three Square.
