Celebrity Chef, Giada De Laurentiis, was at the Country Club of Landfall last Friday for a Breakfast and Lunch Fundraiser. The Fundraiser benefitted the Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington, which is a Charter School that is designed to help girls from 6th grade thru 12th grade become first generation college students.
On Friday, over 600 attendees came out to support the cause and meet Giada De Laurentiis. Giada has ties to the area from her grandfather, director Dino De Laurentiis, who built the Screen Gem Studios in Wilmington in 1984.
For the hungry attendees, De Laurentiis’ lunch menu consisted of faro and kale salad, roasted chicken cacciatore, and polenta cake. In addition to the breakfast and lunch there was a silent auction. Overall the event raised an impressive $400,000 for the Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington!Posted by
