If you’re looking for tickets to the 14th annual Parade of Chefs next, you had better act fast.

Tickets for the popular fundraiser are virtually sold out according to Barb Noorenberghe, of the Foundation of Chatham-Kent Health Alliance.

“Demand has been very strong,” she said. “The community has always supported this great fundraiser and this year is no exception.”

Celebrity chef Mike Ward is the headliner of the event, co-starring with the finest in local foods prepared by chefs from

Mama Maria’s Ristorante, Chatham Breakfast House & Grille, Eat What’s Good, Harvest Moon Catering, Simplicity & Moore Catering, T-Bones Grill House and The Chilled Cork Restaurant & Lounge.

The Apr. 7 event will be held at Club Lentinas.

Each of the seven courses will be accompanied by wines from various wineries including Aleksander Estate Winery, Early Acres Estate Winery, Pelee Island Winery & Vineyards, and Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery, along with beer from Bayside Brewing in Erieau, and Railway City Brewing Co. in St. Thomas.

All proceeds from this event will support the CKHA Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Renewal Campaign. In late 2014, a $6.9 million campaign was launched to support CKHA in purchasing new equipment for CKHA’s Diagnostic Imaging Department. To date, more than $3.1 million has been raised.

Tickets are $125 each and can be purchased by calling 519-436-2538. More information can be found online at
