Careers through Culinary Arts Programs (C-CAP), the workforce development nonprofit that teaches more than 20,000 middle-and-high school students in over 165 schools culinary, life, and job skills, announces its annual national benefit, to be held on Monday, April 3rd from 5:45 pm to 9 pm ET at New York City’s Chelsea Piers.
Hosted by C-CAP’s longtime co-chair and celebrity chef, Marcus Samuelsson, the fundraiser will honor Restaurant Associates CEO, Chef Ed Brown and be chaired by Warren Thompson, President and Chairman of Thompson Hospitality Corporation, the largest minority-owned food service and facilities management company in the U.S.
