Hot Date: Sunday Chef Mix charity fundraiser on Sunday, March 9th
FLUENT, the luxury concierge service and friends of the Hatch, sent out the bat signal asking us to help. We would never say no to Lisa Moore and Jackson.
Ulysses “Uly” Galvan, a longtime family member of the Dallas culinary community, has leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. Even though he has health insurance, the medical bills and family expenses will be overwhelming. Katherine Clapner, the owner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate and Uly’s boss, is partnering with Fluent on a project they’re calling Sunday Chef Mix. The Mix involves food, good people and charity, so mark Sunday, March 9 on your calendar.
From 5:30 to 8:30 pm on March 9 at 3015 Trinity Groves, more than a baker’s dozen of local chefs and culinary folks are pulling together for one big charity fundraiser. All proceeds go to Uly and his family. Lots of cool culinarians are involved. Good people like Clapner, Joanne Bondy, Tim Byres and Lance Smith from Smoke, Jerry De La Riva and Tommy Simpson and Samir Dhurandhar from Sunday Supper HQ Nick and Sam’s, Paula Lambert from The Mozzarella Company, Mynetta Cockerell, Dan Landsberg of Dragonfly, Matt McCallister of FT33, Chris Patrick of Abacus, Vijay Sadhu (who denies opening up his own place but we know he is), Cody Sharp from Casa Rubia, Abraham Salum of Salum and Komali, and Scott Tobey of Origins Cafe.
“I am amazed. All of these great chefs, great people coming together to help me and my family – wow!” Uly writes to the Hatch. “I am very thankful to Katherine Clapner, to Lisa Moore and to everyone showing their support for me with this event.”
And since this is a charity fundraiser, there will be the requisite charity auction for dining packages, wine, hotel stays and things you didn’t even know you wanted. Big dinner. Community. Chefs. Fun people. All for a good cause.
$50 plus a bottle of wine. RSVP to Lisa@fluentdallas.com
