A Slice of Latin America Annual Gala

The “A Slice of Latin America” Gala is a fun-filled evening featuring 30 or so of New York’s most talented and famous chefs, and an opportunity to celebrate Latin food and music. The memorable event gathers hundreds of attendees in an evening of food tastings, music, auctions and dancing. Funds raised from the Gala are dedicated to enhancing the capacity of CHCF’s yearly programs and services.

There are several rewarding ways to take part in “A Slice of Latin America”: as a participating sponsor, or by purchasing tickets, donating an auction or raffle item, purchasing a raffle book, and participating in the silent and live auctions the night of the event. The Gala provides photo opportunities and time to mingle in an intimate setting with honorees and special guests.
