Hundreds of guests will, once again, be amazed by the culinary talents of some of the finest chefs in South Florida at the Ann Storck Center’s 15th Annual Celebrity Chefs Food Tasting & Auction, to be held on Friday, October 3 at 7 p.m. at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, FL.

Among the local restaurants and chefs participating are 3030 Ocean, Anthony’s Runway 84, Bin 595 Eclectic Grille & Wine Bar, Bob Roth’s New River Groves, Brooks Restaurant, Casa D’Angelo, Chef Judith Able, Chocolate Falls, Emeril’s, Fish Restaurant, Grill Room on Las Olas, Hard Rock Cafe, In Home Gourmet, Jackson’s Steakhouse, Jazziz Bistro & Live Music, Jimmie’s Chocolates, Lola’s on Harrison, Mancini’s Prime Blue Grill, Renegade, Samba Room and The Chef’s Table.

Last year, the Celebrity Chefs event attracted more than 600 people and raised over $430,000 to support the Ann Storck Center Preschool and other programs.

Chaka Khan, one of the funkiest funksters this side of Funktown, will bring her awesome hits ("I'm Every Woman," "Tell Me Something Good," and "I Feel For You" are just a few) to Hard Rock Hotel Orlando's monthly Velvet Sessions on September 25th, in the hotel's lobby and the hotel's killer rock bar, Velvet Bar.

On the last Thursday of every month, Velvet Sessions' rock 'n' roll cocktail party combines creative cocktails with live music from some of the hottest rock bands. The price of admission even includes free drinks and hors d’oeuvres before the show.

This month's session, however, also benefits Hard Rock's Pinktober campaign for breast cancer awareness. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, who's stated mission is to "achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime." So, not only will you be funkin' it up with Chaka Khan, but you'll be supporting a great organization, as well.

In addition, you can even enjoy a mini-vacation with the VIP Velvet Sessions Hotel Package, which includes VIP tickets to the show, a meet 'n' greet with Chaka before the show, a 3-night stay at the amazing Hard Rock Hotel Orlando (including a poolside cabana for one day of your stay), and the incredible Orlando weather and amenities. Call 1-866-360-7395 for all the details on this package.

Come on out for a great time and a great cause. Over the past nine years, Hard Rock's Pinktober campaign has raised millions for research and outreach. We want this to be the best year yet, and every dollar helps. Thank you for your help and support.

Veteran comedian and master ventriloquist Jeff Dunham brings his stand-up and cast of beloved characters to Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on December 11 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 19 at noon.

Breathing life into an elderly curmudgeon or a purple human-like creature from the Micronesian islands, or even a self-effacing, talking jalapeno-on-a-stick, Jeff Dunham is straight man to some of the funniest partners in show business.

A true veteran of the comedic stage and one of the most sought-after entertainers working today, Dunham has more than honed his craft performing 40 weeks and 250 dates a year in concert venues, comedy clubs and countless private corporate appearances.

Dunham’s comedic skill, impeccable technique, and sleight of hand make him a master of his craft. He is the only person ever to win the prestigious "Ventriloquist of the Year" award twice, and he was recently nominated "Comedian of the Year" by the TNN Music City News Country Awards. Dunham was also voted “Funniest Male Stand-Up Comic”’ at the American Comedy Awards, an honor shared with the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Foxworthy and Robin Williams. Additionally, viewers recently voted Dunham third place (for the second time in two years) in Comedy Central’s Standup Showdown. The comedian and his grumpy old-man partner, Walter, have made several appearances on Fox Sports Net’s Best Damn Sports Show, and they’ve been featured on such television shows as Hollywood Squares, Entertainment Tonight, Good Morning America and Blue Collar TV.

He has amassed legions of loyal fans throughout the United States and abroad with thousands of sold-out theater and comedy club performances and countless television guest spots. Among those are numerous Tonight Show appearances with both Leno and Carson (in fact, he has appeared on the show more than any other ventriloquist in history), two top-rated specials on Comedy Central and a profile on CBS' 60 Minutes II.

Tickets cost $46.50 and $41.50.* All seats are reserved and available at the Hard Rock Live Box Office, open Monday – Saturday from noon to 7pm and on Sunday – only open on event days at noon. Tickets also are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, online at www.ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone: Miami-Dade (305) 358-5885, Broward (954) 523-3309, and Palm Beach (561) 966-3309. Doors open one-hour prior to show start time. *Additional fees may apply.

Come out and celebrate the one-year anniversary of Council Oak Steaks & Seafood at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa with Captain Keith Colburn of Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch on Saturday September 27, 2008 from 4pm until 5pm. He’ll be signing autographs and taking photos right outside of the restaurant next to the Wonderwall  - Seminole Hard Rock’s two-million dollar video waterfall. This event is free and open to everyone.

Council Oak Steaks & Seafood is an innovative and sophisticated fine-dining experience meant to cater to those with discriminating tastes.  Named for the iconic, ancestral oak tree which is still in existence - where tribe leaders gathered to discuss tribe affairs - Council Oak offers up the finest USDA steaks, aged for 21 days in our own Himalayan pink salt brick-lined butcher shop, and seafood from local waters, plus live Maine lobster and fresh Alaskan King Crab imported directly from the Bering Sea. Council Oak has an extensive menu composed of tantalizing appetizers and main dishes and a wide-ranging wine-by-the-glass menu in its intimate lounge, which features live entertainment nightly. Every seat in the dining room has a spectacular view of the magnificent and sparkling kitchen and wine rooms, which unfold as a theater behind floor-to-ceiling glass. Council Oak was recently recognized nationally by Wine Spectator Magazine and received the Award for Excellence due to its extensive wine list appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.
