2024 DEAR Diabetes Gala

Featuring Chef Curtis Aikens

Curtis has been with the Food Network since its inception, previously as the host of Pick of the Day, From My Garden, Meals Without Meat, and Food In A Flash

Curtis is Quick to point out that his expertise with produce does not mean that he is “anti-meat.” “I just love fruits and vegetables,” he says.

Join us on September 27th for a fun-filled evening.
