This past Sunday night Seattle Fish Co. supported in full-force one of our favorite fundraiser events of the year: Chefs Up Front. The evening’s proceeds supported Cooking Matters, a program of Share Our Strength’s national No Kid Hungry campaign, impacting the lives of more than 79,000 families at risk of hunger over the last twenty years. Our President and CEO, James Iacino was the event chair for the successful event. In addition to being gold-level sponsors for the Chefs Up Front, Seattle Fish Co. is a committed sponsor to the nonprofit, Share Our Strength. Share Our Strength’s goal over the next year is to provide nutrition education to help more than 12,000 low-income Colorado families to stretch their food budgets and provide their children healthy meals at home.

The evening featured Denver’s most renowned chefs cooking tableside. This year, every course at each table was expertly paired with wine. The event was stocked with donated seafood at nearly every table including a full-blown oyster bar hosted by Blue Island Oyster Bar. We’re already looking forward to next year!
