MVP Health Care proudly presents the 4th Annual Chef's Challenge to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region!

The Capital Region is home to some great eats that's for sure, but what happens when you put Excelsior Springs  vs. Saratoga Golf & Polo Club in a battle of the chefs?  

On August 6, we will find out as two top chefs from the Capital Region, Chef Thomas Gulbrandsen of Excelsior Springs and 3-time champion Chef John Ireland of Saratoga Golf & Polo Club, take sides and compete for the title and the chance to defend their title next year!

In addition, area restaurants will be showcasing their cuisine.  Guests in attendance will receive complimentary wine, champagne and desserts and will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite from among the restaurants.

This year's participating restaurants include:

  • Capital City Gastro Pub
  • Cafe Calabria
  • Ginger Man
  • Mazzone Hospitality
  • New World Bistro
  • Reel Seafood Co.
  • Treviso by Mallozis

Did we mention it's for a great cause? Proceeds will benefit Big Brother Big Sisters of the Capital Region, providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

General Reservations will be $75 per person, Young Professionals tickets will be $50 per person, and Honorary Committee reservations will be $150 per person.
