Ann Storck Center, a Fort Lauderdale-based private nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, is excited to host its 28th Annual Celebrity Chefs event on Friday, April 26, 2024, at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood’s Grand Ballroom in Hollywood, FL. Having garnered a reputation as one of South Florida’s most sought-after fundraisers, the event is expected to be bigger and better than ever with over 400 of South Florida’s community leaders, philanthropists and influencers in attendance.

The event will raise awareness, funds and “glasses” to support the Ann Storck Center, which accommodates 96 residents and serves more than 300 individuals daily through an array of critical care, learning and ability-focused programs.

The event will kick off with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m. with Violinist Frank Lima followed by an open bar and tastings from South Florida’s top restaurants, breweries and bakeries. Featured restaurants to date include Abiaka at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Anthony’s Clam House and Grill, Bravo PeruvianKitchen, Brimstone, Burlock Coast at The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, Casa Calabria, Even Keel, Funky Buddha Brewery, Georgia Pig, Howard’s Market & Deli, Ilois at Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach, Livia Bar & Grill, Riverside Market, Tarpon River Brewery, Tulio’s Tacos and Tequila Bar, Zeroe Plant-Based Caviar, Mimi’s Ravioli and Twisted Roots Kava Brewery.

Florida Panthers Arena Host Aaron “The Speaker” Shapiro will emcee the event. Supporters will have a special opportunity to “Bid for Kids” through donations and participate in a silent auction featuring high-end items and exceptional luxury experiences.

Interactive painter Joseph Gormley will paint a piece of art live during the cocktail reception that will be auctioned during “Bid for Kids.” He will engage with guests so that they will have the opportunity to paint a stroke on the painting.

Ann Storck Center’s 28th Annual Celebrity Chefs event will honor the Billisi family with the Community Leadership Award and Rosalind (Roz) Perlmutter with the Legacy Award. Additionally, an Ann Storck Center team member will be awarded with the All-Heart Staff Award.

Since its inception, Ann Storck Center’s Celebrity Chefs event has raised nearly $5.5 million dollars to support Ann Storck Center’s mission, which is throughout all of its programs and services to discover ability and build independence so that individuals live happier, more independent, fulfilling lives.
