Food Network host, author and philanthropist Alton Brown will deliver the keynote address at Hopelink’s Reaching Out Benefit Luncheon Monday, Oct. 19 at Bellevue’s Meydenbauer Center.
The Reaching Out luncheon — now in its 20th year — is the Redmond-based social services agency’s largest annual fundraising event.
Last year’s luncheon raised nearly $1 million to provide food, shelter, family development, transportation and job readiness skills for homeless and low-income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities in north and east King County.
Although he has appeared on numerous Food Network series, Brown is probably best known for creating and hosting the Peabody Award-winning cooking show “Good Eats,” which merged science, trivia, food and kitchen equipment advice and also garnered Brown a James Beard award for “Best TV Food Personality” in 2011.
The luncheon will take place Monday, Oct. 19 from noon to 1:15 p.m. at Meydenbauer Center, 11100 NE 6th St. in Bellevue.
There is no charge to attend the luncheon, but during the program guests will be asked to make a donation in support of Hopelink’s services.
