The Grand Chefs Gala

Last weekend was full of gala’s and events for Northern Nevada. Big Brothers and Big Sisters had their annual Grand Chefs Gala at the Atlantis Casino Resort. It’s was last Saturday night, where the finest of chefs came out to prepare their best dish for all of the event goers. 

This gala had it all, music, amazing food, auction items and dancing. This gala’s was using all it’s local talent by having chefs only from the Truckee Meadow and mucus from Reno’s own Under the Radar.

If you miss the gala, make sure to catch it next year, especially if you like great food and you want to help out a great cause! But you still can help for free, you can change someone’s life by signing up to be a big brother or a big sister. This is a wonderful way to enlighten a child who be so grateful for anytime that you can spend with them.
