Registrations open for OzHarvest CEO CookOff 2018
Under the direction of some of Australia’s top chefs, industry leaders will unite to create and serve a gourmet dinner to 1000 vulnerable people on March 19 at Sydney’s Royal Hall of Industries.
This year CEOs have the option to bring along a team of four and already some of the nation’s top executives have signed up, including PwC executives Lawrence Goldstone, partner and co-founder at PwC’s The Difference, and Sue Horlin, managing partner people.
“I’ve experienced the true magic of this event first hand – it’s an incredibly humbling night, which always has a profound effect on anyone involved,” said Goldstone.
“Anyone in a position to give, should and I encourage all industry leaders and their teams to bring the competitive spirit from the boardroom to the kitchen and make a valuable impact for a great cause.”
OzHarvest founder and CEO Ronni Kahn said the event has raised more than $7 million in the last seven years.
“The CEO CookOff gives a unique opportunity for CEOs to demonstrate leadership with compassion and purpose, and to break bread with some of the most vulnerable people in our community,” she said.
“With over 3 million people in Australia experiencing food insecurity each year, this event allows the business world to address this serious issue which often goes unseen. This year we have opened up the event so teams can share the experience with the boss and rally together their fundraising efforts to help us reach our massive $2 million goal.”
Award winning chef Josh Niland will join a cast of top talent including Neil Perry, Matt Moran, Colin Fassnidge, Guillaime Brahimi and Peter Gilmore for the event.
