The Auburn 49er Lions Club will host the 26th Annual Celebrity Chefs Cooking for Community Service event from 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, March 1, in the Placer Building at the Gold Country Fairgrounds. Each year, local cooks gather to show off their culinary talents, and those in attendance enjoy the tasty offerings. It is a delicious evening that people have come to anticipate. The Auburn Lions are in the selection process to choose the beneficiary of the event’s proceeds. Given the current economy, the Lions hope to help another Auburn area nonprofit organization benefit our community. If you have a favorite culinary creation that you would like to share with the community, become a Celebrity Chef. To sign up, or if you have questions, call (530) 863-7503.
