Food Calendar – 5th Annual Chefs for the Cure – Susan G. Komen MA event

April 10, 2013

The Massachusetts Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure is presenting their 5th annual “Chefs for the Cure” event TOMORROW (Thursday, April 11, 2013) at the Residences at W Boston.

While my speaking schedule doesn’t allow me to be on hand – I’m doing a social media training in Las Vegas – I thought readers would like to learn more about this cool event. Especially because there are some notable chefs that take part. It’s also a creative way to raise money for a good cause.

Here are the details…
