Golfing with Thomas Keller for Student Scholarships

Chef Thomas Keller partnered with the CIA in June to raise more than $500,000 for student scholarships at the first annual Thomas Keller Golf Classic in Napa, CA.

Keller, chef/proprietor of the internationally renowned French Laundry and Per Se restaurants, joined with the CIA for the college's first major West Coast fundraising event. "It is my true honor to partner in this event to benefit for the students of The Culinary Institute of America," said Chef Keller, a member of the CIA's Board of Trustees. "Through the camaraderie of golf, we are raising funds for student scholarships so they can learn from the world-class teachers and chefs of the CIA."

The event opened with a reception, dinner, and live auction, accompanied by music from folk and blues singer Maria Muldaur. The golf tournament the following day featured a clinic with PGA pro Andy Miller before 25 teams played for trophies in a four-person scramble.

"The generosity of the CIA's friends allows us to continually advance our world-class educational offerings, such as the phenomenal study abroad programs, unparalleled learning environments, and ever-expanding bachelor’s degree majors," said CIA President Tim Ryan. "Scholarships are the key to bringing these opportunities to life. They help us bring the most qualified, talented, and passionate students to our campuses. At the end of the day, that's what this Golf Classic is all about."
