Tuesday night at KGB, guests of Celebrity Chef Kerry
Simon dined on Summer Salad Parfait, Kerry’s Sliders made famous on “Iron
Chef,” Cotton Candy, Breakfast cupcakes and more; sipped on KGB’s signature
cocktails Double Agent and the Traditional; and purchased raffle tickets all
while raising enough funds to provide 10,974 meals to hungry Southern
Nevadans. Since the inception of this
Restaurant Week event last year, KGB has increased funds donated by more than
468 percent. Party-goers bought raffle
tickets for the chance to win fabulous prizes including a Jameson Snow Board
provided by Pernod Ricard USA , a Jim Beam electric guitar autographed by Kid Rock
and donated by Bean Global Spirits & Wine, Inc., a Dos Equis wooden cooler
provided by Heineken USA and many more.
The excitement peaked when two bidders started a duel over a dinner for
six at KGB hosted by Kerry Simon. When
the bidding reached $600, Simon graciously offered each of the bidders dinner
for six; thereby raising an additional $600 for Three Square , a charity Simon supports throughout the year. Proceeds from tickets to the event as well at
50 percent of all proceeds from KGB logo’d merchandise were combined with
raffle and auction funds to reach the staggering donation of almost 11,000
The gourmet burger restaurant
will continue to raise money for Three Square until Sept. 11 by offering both a lunch and dinner
menu as part of Restaurant Week.
