FORMER WHITE HOUSE EXECUTIVE CHEF VISITS THE STEEL CITY TO HELP RAISE FUNDS FOR LIFE’SWORK AT A WHITE HOUSE DINNER IN PITTSBURGH™

Pittsburgh, Pa. — President and CEO Everett McElveen and Life’sWork Board Chair Brian Heery are proud to announce that former White House Executive Chef John Moeller is set to prepare a fundraising dinner to benefit Life’sWork of Western PA.

The purpose of the fundraising gala, A White House Dinner in Pittsburgh™, is to honor businesses and community leaders who have furthered the lives of people with disabilities or other employment barriers.

Established as a re-creation of an actual State Dinner held at The White House, A White House Dinner in Pittsburgh™ will treat honored guests to four exquisite courses deserving of a First Family or foreign dignitary.

Chef John Moeller is among an elite group of chefs, those who have served in the White House preparing meals for Presidents, First Families, and their guests, including visiting Heads of State. Chef to three First Families, including President George H.W. Bush, President William Jefferson Clinton, and President George W. Bush, Chef Moeller joined the White House kitchen in 1992, eventually acting as White House Chef in 2005. Over the course of his career in the White House, he focused on creating unique and one-of-a-kind dishes that relied on fresh and flavorful ingredients.

The dinner will be presided over by Sally Wiggin and will be held at the Grand Ballroom of the Southpointe Hilton Garden Inn on September 18th.  Cocktails begin at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. and entertainment by guitarist, John Marcinezyn.
