The Autism Speaks Biannual Chef Gala will be held on Saturday, March 13, 2021, at The Cleveland Museum of Art (11150 East Boulevard) in Cleveland, OH. The evening begins with cocktails and tastings from over 20 restaurants and chefs.

Each tasting will be inspired by one of our Junior Chefs, who is a local child or young adult on the spectrum. Next, guests will be seated in the atrium for dinner while a live culinary presentation is prepared by our Chef Honoree, John Selick, followed by a short program.

More than 400 guests are expected to attend, representing Cleveland’s top consumers, philanthropists, corporate sponsors, and business leaders.
