WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) — A special event that helps fund one local organization and features tasty foods from local restaurants is now just a few months away.
It’s almost that time of year again for Wheeling Health Right’s annual Chef’s Auction.
Wheeling Health Right is required by the state to raise half of its operating budget in the community. To achieve that goal, they will once again host their main fundraiser where people can come out to enjoy some amazing food prepared by various chefs in the Ohio Valley.
The event will feature various auctions, live entertainment, and a wine and bourbon pull.
The executive director for Wheeling Health Right, Kathie Brown, shares how special it is to have the event in a community that provides so much support.
”We have a wonderful, supportive community who really worry about people who need health care and can’t afford it. And the community rallies for us and it’s just so exciting and so fun to see people come together and say, we care about our neighbors who have less than we do. It’s just a wonderful evening.”
Kathie Brown – Executive Director, Wheeling Health Right
The event will be held on May 2nd at Wesbanco Arena with a cocktail hour beginning at 6 pm and restaurants opening at 7 pm.
WTRF is proud to be the sponsor for this year’s event.
