The Knoxville restaurant and hospitality community came together this past Sunday for an over-the-top fundraising dinner to assist the family of Chef Joe Cunningham, according to Cynthia Moxley, writing in The Blue Streak.


“The popular 43-year-old executive chef at Northshore Brasserie died in July from complications after a car accident.

“His industry friends organized a five-course dinner with wine pairings. They sold 200 tickets at $250 a piece and put together a silent and live auction at The Mill & Mine in downtown Knoxville. The result: they raised more than $88,000 which will go to Cunningham’s wife, Laura Petit, and two children, Noah, 19, and Willa, 10.”

Moxley has pictures galore – both the food offerings and the friends and family gathered. Read about the event here.
