Former Rochester "MasterChef" contestant Shari Mukherjee will lead participants through a virtual dinner for the next Boys & Girls Club of Rochester (BGCR) fundraiser.

Mukherjee and other chefs will hold The Chef's Table, a three-course dinner wherein participants will prepare parts of the meal along with the professionals, on Saturday, March 20.

Tickets will include all food needed for the event. VIP ticketholders will receive additional cocktail mixers, charcuterie, and an "interactive experience" with Mukherjee.

“We were sad we could not come together and host A Chair Affair the same way we have in the past,” said Claudia Tabini, BGCR board president. “So we came up with a new and exciting way to support our kids that we know our community will love."

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, Feb. 23. See for more information.
