GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Over the last few weeks we’ve been giving you a sneak preview of a great event: Taste of Hope benefitting the American Cancer Society and we’re finally in the home stretch!

The event takes place this upcoming Monday at Frederik Meijer Gardens. Today we have one of the organizers, Shawn Kohlhaas, here the Regional Executive Chef for Trinity Health Grand Rapids Bryan Nader.

This year’s group of competing chefs promises to deliver a wide array of dishes that guests will be able to taste, sample and vote for their favorite dishes. At the end of the event, guests will witness a chef being crowned Top Chef of the year! There will also be craft cocktails to enjoy along with a remarkable live & silent auction filled with one of a kind culinary and travel experiences.
