Last night at KGB, guests of Celebrity Chef Kerry Simon dined on Summer Salad Parfait, Kerry’s Sliders made famous on “Iron Chef,” Cotton Candy, Breakfast cupcakes and more; sipped on KGB’s signature cocktails Double Agent and the Traditional; and purchased raffle tickets all while raising enough funds to provide 10,974 meals to hungry Southern Nevadans (Pictured above: Brian Burton, CEO and President of Three Square, with Kerry Simon – Photo credit: Denise Truscello / WireImage.com DeniseTruscello.net).

Since the inception of this Restaurant Week event last year, KGB has increased funds donated by more than 468 percent. Party-goers bought raffle tickets for the chance to win fabulous prizes including a Jameson Snow Board provided by Pernod Ricard USA, a Jim Beam electric guitar autographed by Kid Rock and donated by Bean Global Spirits & Wine, Inc., a Dos Equis wooden cooler provided by Heineken USA and many more.

The excitement peaked when two bidders started a duel over a dinner for six at KGB hosted by Kerry Simon. When the bidding reached $600, Simon graciously offered each of the bidders dinner for six; thereby raising an additional $600 for Three Square, a charity Simon supports throughout the year. Proceeds from tickets to the event as well at 50 percent of all proceeds from KGB logo’d merchandise were combined with raffle and auction funds to reach the staggering donation of almost 11,000 meals.

The gourmet burger restaurant will continue to raise money for Three Square until Sept. 11 by offering both a lunch and dinner menu as part of Restaurant Week.
