We’re just about a month away from our sixth annual Chef’s Table Austin gala and our mouths are already starting to water just looking at these chef menus. Tickets are on sale for the September 21st event and we’re thrilled to announce we’re already SOLD OUT of our VIP tickets, though there are still plenty of standard tickets available. The gala will be held at the beautiful Hotel Van Zandt this year, and it’s wonderful to see that so many of you are as excited for it as we are. If you haven’t secured your tickets yet, make sure you do so ASAP by clicking here!

If you’ve joined us in the past, or know someone who has, then we don’t have to tell you what a fun and inspiring evening awaits. Chef’s Table Austin is our largest fundraiser for Water to Thrive and is a truly unique evening. Some of Austin’s top chef’s come together to create unique menus for 10 or more people that will each be auctioned off live to the highest bidder. This event helps us continue to do our work of building wells providing clean water, while giving you the opportunity to experience the amazing food we’re known for here in Austin by bidding on chef dinner experiences. Some can even be redeemed in the comfort of your own home!

We’re honored that head chefs from restaurants such as Olive & June, Salt + Time, Second Bar + Kitchen, Kemuri Tatsu-Ya and so many more who have taken the time to stand with us in support of clean water. Now we’re sure you’re thinking what we’ve been thinking, “How could someone ever choose?!” Well we’ve got great news for you!


That’s right, you can now log onto chefstableaustin.org at anytime to review each specially curated menu that will be auctioned off at the gala. Perhaps you’re interested in the delightful four course meal for 10 provided in your home complete with Jazz Music from Chef Janelle Reynolds of @t Large. Or maybe you’re not sure how many you want to invite or where you want the dinner… Then Chef Andrew Wiseheart’s menu from Chicon may be a perfect bid for you. If you win this experience, he’s standing by ready to collaborate with you on every detail of the evening. In addition, we’ve got menus from Chef Yesica Arredondo, Chef Bryce Gilmore, Chef Steven Meese, Chef Wolfgang Murber, and Chef Rob Snow.

There will also be a silent auction with signed memorabilia and high-value basket items up for purchase. Then before the live auction begins we’ll have a short program, and you’ll get to hear from each chef and learn why it’s so important for them to support our efforts to provide clean water for communities in east Africa. We look forward to Chef’s Table Austin every year because there’s truly something for everyone. Go check out the menus, gather your friends, and then come out for a wonderful evening of fun, food, music, and bidding for a good cause.


Bon Appétit!
