Le Bon Appetit

Le Bonheur Children’s, Chef Kelly English and Le Bonheur Club have made the decision to postpone the upcoming Le Bon Appetit event originally scheduled for June 13, 2020. We recognize that due to the situation with COVID-19 this spring, plans for early summer will be uncertain for many.

 While we are disappointed that Le Bon Appetit will be unable to take place in 2020, we are excited to announce the new Le Bon Appetit date of June 12, 2021 at Crosstown Concourse.

 We are confident that this is the most responsible decision for our event guests, participating chefs, vendors and community. We understand that this is an especially difficult time for the entire restaurant industry and for many of our devoted chefs in Memphis and throughout the country.

 “Le Bonheur remains committed to supporting children who need us. Our work does not pause amidst this crisis; in fact we are adjusting and innovating to help children in our community stay healthy and safe,” said Le Bonheur President and CEO Michael Wiggins. “It is important to continue support for Le Bonheur’s mission, and events like Le Bon Appetit help raise critical dollars to help children throughout our community. We appreciate all of the work that Le Bonheur Club, Kelly English and the many chefs from across the country do for this great event.”

 These are unprecedented times for all of us and we encourage you to stay safe and continue to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our local health officials. We are hopeful that you will continue your support of Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and plan on joining us at Le Bon Appetit on June 12, 2021.
