This coming Sunday, July 3, more than 20 local celebrity chefs will donate their time and talent to fundraise for fellow culinarian Ana Martinez.

Chef Martinez, who's worked at Acenar and the Guenther House and volunteered as a cook at the Covenant Hills Women's Center, was badly injured in a car crash and has since been unable to work. Under the organizational forces of Biga's Bruce Auden and Perny Shea, Chefs for Chefs is uniting the SA food community in brunch to support Martinez's ongoing recovery.

For $100, guests can eat their way through a wonderland of edible delights at Rosario's, with food stations ranging including a Big Red and barbacoa spot. You can expect choices like king crab deviled eggs from Tre Trattoria, a smoothie station from La Gloria, and charcuterie boards from Cured among other tasty selections. There's music by Stephen Doctor for added ambiance, and coffee by Espresso Mio, mimosas, a bloody mary bar, margaritas and beer to wash wash it all down.

The full list of participating chefs and restaurants includes:

Bruce Auden - Biga on the Banks
Jeff Balfour - Southerleigh
Jeff White -  The Boiler House
Jenn Stipp - Brindles
Blanca Aldaco - Aldaco's
Diana Barrios Trevino - Los Barrios

And if you're not too full and willing to contribute a little more to the cause, the brunch will also have silent auctions for bar crawls and more.

The benefit brunch is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sunday, July 31 at Rosario's North (9715 San Pedro Ave.). Only 300 tickets are available for the event, so make sure to act fast. Chefs for Chefs is also accepting donations for Chef Ana Martinez's recovery fund.
