The Benefits of Fine Dining

Seven of Denver’s most celebrated chefs — Sheila Lucero (Jax Fish House), Goose Sorensen (Solera), Matt Selby (Vesta Dipping Grill & Steuben’s), Troy Guard (TAG), Brian Laird (Barolo Grill), Tyler Wiard (Elway’s Cherry Creek) and Sean Yontz (Sketch & Tambien) — will congregate in the kitchen of Lola tonight, home turf to chef/owner Jamey Fader, for Dos Casas, a benefit for Brent’s Place, a local nonprofit that provides a home-away-from home for young cancer patients and their families.

“This is something that we do every year that’s extremely important to all of us at Lola, and to all the other great chefs who participate,” says Fader, who’s in his third year of hosting the fundraiser. “Brent’s Place does so much to help cancer patients, and this is just our small way of giving back — of doing what we can to show our support for all that they do.”

The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception and five-course feast paired with wines at Lola, 1575 Boulder Street. General-admission tickets are $75; VIP tickets, which include a meet-and-greet with the chefs and patio seating, are $125; and after 9 p.m., tickets are $35 and include two drinks, small bites and live music.
