Power of Kindness Event (2016)
Chef Ogden's Awards.
Every year we come together for our annual event to have a good time while making an impact on children in need. This year we are excited to feature two time James Beard Award winner, Chef Bradley Ogden. Amazing cuisine will be prepared by Chef Ogden on this exclusive night (no host bar). There will be fun opportunities to win amazing prizes and a chance to participate in a raffle for Warriors game tickets! We will also have music by DJ Lance Callanta all night. This will all be supporting children in our community. For more information about our cause look below.
About Chef Bradley Ogden
Chef Bradley Ogden came to national attention in his first position at Kansas City’s The American Restaurant after graduating most likely to succeed from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America. He continued to garner acclaim as executive chef at San Francisco’s Campton Place Hotel before opening his first restaurant, The Lark Creek Inn, in 1989. His signature farm-to-table cuisine has continued to enjoy success in a continually expanding restaurant empire, with openings throughout the Bay Area, and including his namesake property in Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace, for which he was awarded Restaurateur of the Year in 2010 by the Nevada Restaurant Association. Chef Ogden is the culinary genius behind these and many more award winning restaurants: Root 246 (Solvang), Anthology (San Diego), Bradley Ogden at Caesars Palace (Las Vegas), Lark Creek (Larkspur & Walnut Creek), One Market (San Francisco), and Yankee Pier (Larkspur & Santana Row).
