Keith Wootton, Managing Director AV1, will join over 150 top business leaders and corporate teams at OzHarvest’s flagship fundraiser, CEO CookOff™ on Monday 25 March 2019 at Sydney’s Royal Hall of Industries.

Wootton will cook alongside some of Australia’s most talented chefs, including Neil Perry, Matt Moran and Colin Fassnidge to create and serve a gourmet dinner for 1,400 special guests from Sydney’s most vulnerable communities.

“You’ll often see the AV1 team out in the local area collecting plastic rubbish, producing fundraising events, or lending support to local community centres,” said Wootton.

“They’ve inspired me to roll up my sleeves, don a chef’s hat, and raise some much-needed funds to fill all those hungry tummies out there.”

OzHarvest Founder and CEO, Ronni Kahn says the stakes are high as the fundraising target this year is $3 million, but thanks to the competitive nature of CEOs she is confident the goal will be reached.

“The CEO CookOff™ offers a unique opportunity to demonstrate leadership with compassion and purpose, and to break bread with some of the most vulnerable people in our community.”

“With over 4 million people in Australia experiencing food insecurity each year, this event allows the business world to address this serious issue which often goes unseen.”

This life-changing event has made an incredible impact by raising over $9 million in the last seven years, allowing OzHarvest to deliver 18 million meals to those who need it most.
