Cuisine for a cause. Pack the Sack: Celebrity Chefs for Blessings in a Backpack is back this year, raising funds to feed school-aged children on the weekends.

During the Pack the Sack dinner, you’ll dig into a coursed meal prepared the winner of Best Baker in America, Jackie Joseph and Food Network stars Darnell “SuperChef” Ferguson and Damaris Phillips.

You’ll get the chance to fête with these foodies, enjoy an open bar, plus participate in live and silent auctions — all proceeds will go to feeding 492 food-insecure children in four Jefferson County Public Schools.

The event will take place at The Olmsted (3701 Frankfort Ave.) on Saturday, March 11 from 6-10 p.m.

Tickets are $200 per person or $2,000 for a table of ten. Snag them online.
