On Tuesday, June 10, Marc Vetri and Jeff Benjamin will host the fundraising party of the year when more than 60 star chefs and beverage makers convene for the 2014 Great Chefs Event. Full participant list is here.

Tickets to the gala are now on sale (here); $350 gets you a chance to taste all the food and drink while you mix and mingle in the Urban Outfitters headquarters in the Navy Yard. Spend $525 to gain access to the (always crazy) after party at Alla Spina. Proceeds will benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the Vetri Foundation for Children, and it’s no chump change - in 2013 the event raised over $1.1 million.

Back in 2011, we asked the assembled food personalities at the event, “What is your favorite thing about Marc Vetri?” The answers ranged from sweet to admiring to pretty damn funny. Check it out below. How many chefs do you recognize?
