Since its beginning, the Turn Up the Heat! Gala has been a unique event showcasing women chefs in the DC region to further fund groundbreaking private research grants, advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill, and support programs for patients and their families who are affected by this disease. Our guests have the opportunity to sample 50+ different dishes – helping to promote participating restaurants and garner new customers. We ask all of our participating female chefs to prepare 400+ samplings for all gala guests.

Thank you to all of the following chefs and mixologists for joining us at the 2017 Turn Up the Heat! Gala. If you’re a female chef interested in participating in our 2018 event on March 7, please contact us by email or by calling (202) 331-1332 to receive more information about joining us at this year’s gala.

Stay tuned for the announcement of 2018 chef and mixologists!
