Common Threads

Common Threads, the non-profit organization dedicated to bringing health and wellness to children, families and communities through cooking and nutrition education, is headed to Miami to conclude its five cities, one-night-only, pop-up dinner. The Miami take-over will take place on Wednesday, November 29 at The Mondrian South Beach, 7 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Each dinner in the series features a line-up of celebrated chefs from across the country and tasks them with creating dishes that reflect the evening’s theme. Kristi Krueger, Michelle Bernstein, Superintendent Alberto Carvalho and Chef Art Smith will play host to the Miami dinner bringing together an impressive list of chefs to create courses inspired by their favorite artist or work of art.

Additionally, the evening will include an opening reception with small bites prepared by Common Threads students, a silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind experiences and a special musical guest performance. All funds raised will benefit Common Threads programs, teaching children in underserved communities how to lead healthier lives. The Common Threads Chef Takeover Fueled by Circuit of The Americas will help fund the organization’s growth goal of getting one million children cooking for life by 2020. General tickets cost $175 per person and Chef’s Table tickets (which include a welcome gift, elevated wine pairing and celebrity chef dish presentations) cost $250 per person.
