LAUGHLIN, NV – April 22, 2014 – Nevada is celebrating its 150th year as a state and the 27th annual Chefs Food Fest on June 5, 2014 inside Aquarius Pavilion has been declared an “Official NV150 Event.” Doors open at 5:30pm.
Chefs from around the tri-state area will showcase their talents and creativity in this friendly competition to raise funds to help struggling families in the area. Proceeds from Chefs Food Fest will go to the River Fund, Inc., a local non-profit agency that provides direct emergency and crisis services for individuals and families in the Bullhead City, Ft. Mohave, the Mohave Valley and Laughlin areas.
“Our Aquarius team is excited to host this wonderful event where guests get to taste great food for a great cause,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager Sean Hammond.
Last year’s Chefs Food Fest helped raise a record $23,000, which was donated to the River Fund, Inc. The Laughlin Chamber of Commerce, who sponsors the event, hopes to raise even more funds this year.
“Chefs Food Fest has always been an extremely popular event that benefits our community. We are proud that this year it is being included in our state’s sesquicentennial celebration,” said Connie Davis, Executive Director of the Laughlin Chamber of Commerce.
Guests can sample scrumptious and creative appetizers, entrées, desserts, and drinks; all prepared by chefs from Laughlin casinos, along with other local restaurants and food and wine distributors.
Participants in Chefs Food Fest compete for the “People’s Choice Best Food Creation” trophy and the “People’s Choice Best Booth Design” trophy.
