Seven Celebrity Chefs Shine at Silver Party

What makes a chef leave the security of his own kitchen to prepare food in an open kitchen for 500 of Sydney's partygoers?

The Silver Party, now in it's fourth year raises money for the Medical Genetics Department of the Sydney Children's Hospital Randwick. 30 - 40% of the 15,000 children treated every year at the hospital are there because of a genetic condition. 40% of infant deaths are genetically related.

Children are why Guillaume Brahimi has given his restaurant, Guillaume at Bennelong, his passion and time to gather this elite group of chefs. 'There is no higher priority than our children,' said Guillaume.

Tony Bilson, Greg Doyle, Armando Percuoco, Neil Perry, Matt Moran and Tetsuya Wakuda will all join Guillaume on 17 February at 6.45pm for 'A Journey of Enlightenment'.

Each chef will showcase his own unique flavours in their 'open kitchens' in an atmosphere reminiscent of the Buddha Bar in Paris. Inspiration will come from a troupe of Brazilian drummers and Marcia Hines's fantastic voice.

The Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for child health with a full range of specialist services treating children from all over NSW and Australia with many conditions including cancer, trauma, HIV/AIDS, congenital abnormalities, heart disease and respiratory disorders.

When: 17 February @ 6.45pm
Where: Bennelong, Sydney Opera House
