charity chef cook-off
Nakama paved the way for bringing sushi to Pittsburgh’s restaurant scene, beginning with their flagship location in Pittsburgh’s trendy South Side neighborhood. Following their success, Nakama opened a second location in Wexford, PA, and wanted to spotlight their new addition while simultaneously raising charitable funds. In conjunction with Glimmer of Hope – a local nonprofit that supports breast cancer awareness and screenings – we executed every detail of a cook-off that featured several of Pittsburgh’s most beloved celebrities. Giving center stage to news anchors and sports figures, the Pirate Parrot, Miss Pennsylvania 2016, and more, our celebrities strutted their culinary skills in front of a captive and hungry audience. The sold-out event raised over $6,000 and was featured in numerous publications and generated extensive attention on multiple social media channels.
