WILMINGTON — Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri, host of Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives,” will visit Wilmington as a fundraiser for the Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington.
GLOW has three events scheduled for the day. They include an intimate dinner with no more than 15 couples on Jan. 25, as well as breakfast and lunch events to be held on Jan. 26.
Fieri will determine the menu for all three events, using locally sourced ingredients and supervision from both Food Network employees and a local staff of Wilmington chefs.
Fieri will entertain guests with stories from behind the scenes of his career as an Emmy Award-winning chef, restaurateur, author and TV personality.
Fieri is the third Food Network star to visit Wilmington in support of GLOW Academy.
Emeril Lagasse hosted events at GLOW in 2015, and Giada De Laurentiis visited in late 2016. The celebrity chef events are a tribute to the career of GLOW Academy Founder Judy Girard, who was president of the Food Network from 1994 to 2004.
Sponsorship opportunities are available with benefits, including personalized and autographed books, meet and greet occasions and premiere seating. Tables of 10 will go on sale Sept. 4, and individual tickets, if still available, will go on sale Oct. 2. For information, visit www.glowacademy.net.
