The Omaha Restaurant Association is hosting "Celebrate Taste", a charity event featuring many of Omaha's Finest Chefs who will be offering a sampling of their Restaurant's menu items at Anthony's Steakhouse and Grand Ballroom, 7229 F St., on Sun., Nov 3, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. This event is in honor of friend, fellow chef and owner of Catering Creations, Jeff Snow, who was hit by a car while bicycling with his children in August. Snow sustained terrible injuries that lead to 8 days in intensive care followed by 5 weeks of hospital care. Thankfully, Snow will be back to work after the first of the year. But of course, there are many expenses that were incurred during this process. The Chef's of Omaha have truly shown their camaraderie by coming together to show their support to Chef Snow and his family. This event is by paid reservations only. Tickets are $75 per person. To reserve your spot or to make a Monetary Gift, Please make checks payable to: Jeff Snow's Charitable Donation Account and mail to the Omaha Restaurant Association, C/O Jeff Snow's Charitable Donation Account, 4270 N. 139th St. 68164.
