Dear Valued Friend of ACFNO:
The 10th annual Best Chefs of Louisiana Fundraiser will be held on March 31, 2020 at the fabulous and spacious **University of New Orleans Ballroom** located in the University Center. Please notice the new location. To ensure the success of this very important fundraiser, we are seeking sponsors to help defray the costs associated with the event, so that all funds raised can go directly toward this year’s chosen beneficiaries – ACFNO culinary scholarships for our future chefs and continuing education for our working chefs.
This year, ACFNO is partnering with the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society will be spearheading the silent auction for ACFNO.
Generous sponsors like you are the key to our success and make it possible for the American Culinary Federation New Orleans chapter to provide culinary scholarships. From the ACFNO Board, we are reaching out to you to request a sponsorship for the event.
The ACFNO chapter has applied for a 501 (c) (3) and our tax attorney tells us that donations our sponsors donate are tax dedutible now! A letter to that effect will follow for your records.
Your sponsorship will be listed in our event program, as well as on the event website page. Below, please view the descriptions of our sponsorship levels and the different types of acknowledgment attached to each.
Payments can be made through the secure Zelle app to account firstname.lastname@example.org, OR checks can be mailed to the address below. Sponsorships are not confirmed official until payment is received. Please e-mail Chef Leon West or Chef Mary Bartholomew with any questions or concerns.

Thank you in advance for your time and generous consideration!
Chef Leon West, ACFNO Chapter President
