Chef Brian Malarkey and CEO, Mimi Kim at Chefdance.

For night 2 of ChefDance, the event hosted the inaugural “49 Remarkable Women + 1 Really Cool Dude” at Sundance. The intimate dinner was prepared by Chef Shawn McClain, (James Beard Chef, Sage, Las Vegas.) 

Scooter Braun was also spotlighted at the event, serving as the only male Honoree (“1 Really Cool Dude.”)

In the wake of the Women’s March and Times Up Movement, the evening celebrated female empowerment, support, and Women’s Rights. Women’s rights activist Gloria Allred, an honoree of the night, gave a moving speech. One of her most impactful quotes of the evening was  “A man of quality will never be threatened by a woman of equality.”

She also addressed Scooter Braun saying, “ Scooter, you’re the one cool dude because I’ve sued all the rest.” Guests enjoyed surprise performances by Interscope artist “Cloves” and Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter Siedah Garrett. The evening was sponsored by Sysco, Diet Coke, Lamborghini, Voss, Kona Brewing Co, One hope Wine and Refinery 29.
