CAA x ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION | AROUND THE TABLE

A night of fine food and fine company. Highly acclaimed chef Grant Achatz hosted chefs and media for a full dinner experience at Alinea, welcoming guests like Andrew Zimmern, Ken Oringer, Aaron Sanchez, Sara Kramer, Ashley Christensen and Andrew Carmellini. From there, the party moved to Chop Shop, where rapper Common fronted a full band and performed a 90-minute set of his best-known songs, from “Glory” to “Go,” at one point welcoming Carla Hall onstage and freestyling about the star of The Chew.

The entire night, curated in part by CAA Culinary, put the spotlight on the Alzheimer’s Association work, meant to help eradicate the degenerative brain disease, the number one killer among incurable diseases in the United States.
