Celebrating fifteen years in five different cities nationwide, over 650 Top Chefs have helped the Glass Slipper Ball Featuring the Best of the Chefs competition raise more than one million dollars for women’s initiatives — and the event continues in Pittsburgh this March.
This premier Foodie event will benefit women’s initiatives including: Living in Liberty (safe home for trafficked victims) Treasure House Fashions (a women’s clothing re-seller for women in need) and CEED (providing water for women and children in a remote area of Northeast Kenya). Kym Gable, of KDKA-TV, media personality/speaker, narrator and voice artist will emcee the event.
The 2018 Glass Slipper Ball is showcasing the finest restaurants whose chefs create signature dishes and desserts, while wine and beer purveyors pour premier samplings. Amidst the sipping and tasting, guests are invited to the dance floor with Pittsburgh’s award winning DJ Kelli Burns. Throughout the evening all eyes will be on the spectacular items featured in the silent auction and the chance to win one of four “Trips of a Lifetime”.
