First, a little about the event: Ryan Wells Evening with the Chefs is a delicious night out celebrating the life and dreams of Ryan Wells. Ryan became actively involved in the Culinary program at Tarpon Springs High School in his junior year. At this time, his plans to become a chef and attend college for the Culinary Arts blossomed. While returning home from a FRLA seminar at Johnson and Wales University in Miami, he was tragically killed in an automobile accident. You can read more about Ryan's story by clicking here.

I have a pair of tickets to give away to this amazing event. Sadly, I will not be in attendance this year as my former roomate Tara is getting married that weekend and Evening with the Chefs falls on the same night as her rehearsal dinner. My only request is that whoever wins dines on delicious food and drink for me!

  1. I think I'd probably cook for my family honestly! Especially the ones I don't get to see!

  2. If I could cook for anyone, I would cook for my grandfather, who recently passed away, and my grandmother who is still living. They were both such wonderful cooks and I would love to cook one of their specialties for them both! :)

  6. I would love nothing more than to be able to cook one gourmet meal for my mom. If only so I could see her one more time and so she could see how beautiful her grandbabies are.
