Gourmet Guys is a food tasting gala pitting 60-90 chefs against each other in an amateur event. Attendees will be able to taste all kinds of appetizers, soups, sides and salads, entrees and desserts, and vote for their favorite chefs.  There will be two judging categories - professional and amateur chefs - so everyone has a chance to win. This will be a fun, family-friendly event.  

The event has several sponsorship opportunities priced from $100 to $5,000.00.   You can purchase Tickets and Sponsorships using the links to the left.


Proceeds from the event are used to support initiatives for needy children locally and internationally.  

Examples of local “Rotary Kidz” projects include: Providing computers, technology and books for Kidz at local elementary schools, “Warm Coats for Cool Kidz,” scholarships to UTC and Chattanooga State, donating and packing weekend backpacks of food for underprivileged children, hosting an annual holiday party for Children’s Home Chambliss Shelter, providing holiday gifts for underprivileged children, and donating infant car seats.   


Internationally, projects include funding clean water tank projects for children at schools in Mexico, delivering and installing water filters for children and families in Lima, Peru, constructing two Children’s Centers in Peru, providing water wells, sanitation and humanitarian relief for children in Haiti and funding educational programs for children in Uganda.


Rotary International is a worldwide network of inspired individuals who translate their passions into relevant social causes to change lives in communities.  Rotary is the first and largest volunteer service organization, with over 1.2 Million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide.
