Rally for Allie

by Charlottesville29


On March 1, rising star chef Allie Redshaw lost her hand in a horrible accident while working at Lampo. Immediately, the Charlottesville food community rallied around Allie and her husband Ian with love and support.

Here is your chance to join that support during an amazing evening with our food community. On March 27 at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards, where Allie was once sous chef, a group of top Charlottesville chefs and producers are coming together to Rally for Allie. In addition to Pippin Hill’s own Bill Scatena, chefs include Craig Hartman of The BBQ Exchange, Dean Maupin of C&O, Lee Hendrickson of Red Pump Kitchen, Caleb Warr of Tavola, and Greenwood Gourmet’s Polina Chesnakova, another recent victim of a life-changing hand injury. Contributors also include Gerry Newman of Albemarle Baking Company, Gail Hobbs-Page of Caromont Farm, and Anita Gupta of Maliha Creations. Guests will enjoy an array of specialty sample dishes from the chefs and contributors.

Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Pippin Hill and the participants, every penny of ticket sales and auction proceeds will go directly to Allie’s Recovery Fund, helping Allie, Ian, and their 16-month-old daughter as they face the daunting expenses of medical care, rehabilitation, and a prosthetic, among others. To join the food community on this special night, get your tickets here. Details:
