John Besh Cooks Up Southern Comfort for Breakthrough Kent Denver Tonight

Kent Denver School will host the seventh annual “Give Your Love to Breakthrough” to benefit Breakthrough Kent Denver, a nonprofit education program for highly motivated but underserved Denver Public School middle-school students. This year’s event features an authentic Southern meal prepared by chef, author, television host and James Beard Award winner John Besh. He'll be cooking up several of his signature New Orleans-inspired dishes, including seafood gumbo, duck dirty rice and more, and there will be live jazz from the Quincy Avenue Rhythm Band. Tickets to the event — which includes dinner, an open bar, an auction and entertainment — are $125, or $350 for VIP, which adds a one-hour cocktail and appetizer reception with Besh starting at 5:30 p.m. All proceeds from the event go to Breakthrough Kent Denver.
