Chefs who Share

On 11 September 2014, Barbara Lenhard and Florian Gast hosted the second black-tie charity gala event at the Cape Town City Hall, 'Chefs who Share - the ART of giving'. The night was spectacular, exceeding all expectations, and raised a whopper of R2,5 million. It is with great gratitude to the hard work and effort of everyone involved that made this night overwhelmingly successful, with special thanks to all the incredible chefs and guests attended. www.chefswhoshare.com
