Guy Fieri Cooking Up Fun with Soldiers
USA- Lacey, WA | Oct 27 2012 | (23:04:25 - EDT)
On Saturday, Nov. 3, "culinary rock star" Guy Fieri will take to the kitchen of Madigan Army Medical Center with his trademark gusto, cooking up hospitality and entertainment for a group of invited soldiers.
During his visit, Fieri, the outgoing restaurateur and popular host of Food Network's “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”, will join a group of Madigan's culinary specialists in the kitchen, providing his own brand of high-energy epicurean instruction and inspiration. Following his food-focused adventures with the specialists, Fieri will spend time with wounded, ill and injured soldiers from the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB).
The "Afternoon with Guy Fieri" at Madigan Army Medical Center is presented by Saint Martin's University, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its extension campuses at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, and is sponsored by America's Credit Union. On the evening of Nov. 3, Saint Martin's University will welcome Fieri to its Lacey campus as the celebrity chef for its annual Saint Martin's Gala. Last year's Gala featured chef Mario Batali and generated $600,000, a record amount for the annual scholarship fundraiser.
A longtime supporter of the men and women serving our country, Fieri has visited bases in the Persian Gulf, Guantanamo Bay and Hawaii.
"It is an honor to have the opportunity to connect Guy with the Warrior Transition Battalion soldiers as part of our pre-Gala festivities," said Roy Heynderickx, Ph.D., president of Saint Martin's University. "This year, the Saint Martin's Gala will feature a special focus on the military, as we celebrate four decades of 'serving those who serve us' on our Joint Base Lewis-McChord extension campuses. The Madigan event is the perfect way to kick off the day."
"We're excited to host Guy Fieri and look forward to him bringing his culinary magic to our kitchen," added Col. Dallas Homas, Madigan Army Medical Center commander. "Our soldiers from the Warrior Transition Battalion are especially thrilled for the opportunity to interact with this celebrity chef."
