2012 SF Chefs: Thank You!
The GGRA is thrilled to wrap up another successful year of SF Chefs! Now in its fourth year, SF Chefs has become a tremendous showcase of why San Francisco and the Bay Area is the premier culinary destination in the country. This year the membership really stepped up, creating an exceptional festival featuring over 250 chefs, 75 wineries, 16 whole pigs, 50 unique cocktails, five amazing San Francisco-themed cakes and one giant noodle!
We are proud to announce that the festival raised $75,000 for local charities, including the Golden Gate Restaurant Association Scholarship Foundation, Meals On Wheels of San Francisco, La Cocina, CUESA and the Food Banks of San Francisco and Marin.
To all the members who participated, SF Chefs was a huge success because of your involvement and support. A special thank you to our presenting sponsor Visa Signature, without whose support the event would not have been possible. Also thank you our amazing production partners that make everything run smoothly and look great: Andrew Freeman & Co, Dominic Phillips Event Marketing, Tannin Management, and Noise 13.
