Television chef Emeril Lagasse toured Miami Children’s Hospital and visited patients in the playroom on February 4. Emeril amused the young patients with the inspirational story about how he became a chef. Later that night, he celebrated the fifth anniversary of Emeril’s Miami Beach restaurant in the Lowe’s Hotel. The renowned chef donated all proceeds from the anniversary celebration to the Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation. “I’m thrilled to reunite with my dear friends and the amazing people of this community for such a worthy cause,” said Chef Lagasse. “I look forward to sharing some great food and toasting five wonderful years, in addition to all the good work Miami Children’s Hospital and its foundation have provided to the children and families of Miami.”
