A sellout crowd of nearly 400 gathered to support the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center at the 15th Annual Best of Tahoe Chefs (BOTC) fundraiser held at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe on May 18. Unique culinary creations were served by 26 of the region’s most popular and talented chefs. In addition to delicious food and a rocking dance party after dinner, the evening also included auctions of 31 local chefs with exclusive packages that included fine dining and everything from sailing to golf to luxury accommodations. Between 2009 and 2013, the Best of Tahoe Chefs event has raised $750,000 to benefit the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center.
