On Monday, March 7, 2005, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, the American Red Cross, Rhode Island Chapter will kick off Red Cross Month by hosting the 2nd Annual "Great Chefs of Rhode Island" at the Roger Williams Park Casino. Sponsored by Sovereign Bank, with NBC 10 and FedEx Kinko's as supporting sponsors, this event will feature signature creations from over 20 notable RI chefs and specialty shops. Guests will also be able to take part in beer and wine sampling, as well as learn about wine pairing. Proceeds from this event will benefit the American Red Cross, Rhode Island Chapter.

Gene Valicenti of NBC 10 will host the event and will take part in several cooking demonstrations performed by Chef Frank Terranova of Johnson & Wales University and "Cooking with Class" on NBC 10.  Nick, Ron and Peter Cardi of Cardi's Furniture will be special guest hosts for the evening.
