South Florida Chefs Unite For The Keys Hurricane Irma Relief


It’s no secret that South Floridians love the Florida Keys, and that’s why so many feel the need to help the Keys in wake of Hurricane Irma. 

Chef Adam Brown of The Cooper in Palm Beach Gardens, along with en-Flux private chef Troy Sheller, are organizing an effort to help food and beverage hospitality employees who are out of work due to Irma. 

The relief effort is twofold: Participating chefs and restaurants will donate a percentage of their daily revenue from Oct. 5 to the Keys, and a Chefs for the Keys event will be held on Oct. 6. 

The event will be held at the Riviera Beach Marina Village from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $125. The event will include food from the area’s top chefs, an open bar, live entertainment and a silent auction. Tickets to the event can be found at
