The Boys and Girls Club’s annual ‘A Chair Affair’ fundraising gala will not happen this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, organizers have announced a very unique opportunity to cook with contestants from the TV show MasterChef.

A press release from the B&G club explains, “MasterChef Contestant and Rochester resident Shari Mukherjee is partnering with Boys & Girls Club of Rochester (BGCR) and other local culinary experts to create a one-of-a-kind, online dining experience.” Mukherjee will be joined by other contestants from the show and local chefs to help you create a culinary masterpiece

Claudia Tabini, BGCR Board President, said, “We were sad we could not come together and host A Chair Affair the same way we have in the past. So we came up with a new and exciting way to support our kids that we know our community will love. You won’t want to miss it!”

Tickets are limited and go on sale on February 23rd. MaterChefs will connect virtually to offer guidance and encouragement as participants cook from home - creating incredible three-course meals.
