Star Chef Tony Khoo surpasses $1 million in fundraising

MAY 2017: Heartfelt congratulations and respect goes out to star Chef Tony Khoo, who has raised $1 million for charity between 2011 and 2017 to benefit those in need.

This compassion and single-minded drive to help others is a star quality and something to be aspired to by chefs around the world – showing how much one individual really can make a big difference in the lives of others.

This year Chef Khoo partnered with the National Kidney Foundation for his charity dinner partner which raised 270,000 Singapore dollars. The dinner, held in April 2017, saw 50 patients and caregivers treated to a sumptuous meal orchestrated by Chef Khoo.

Well done!

“Luxembourg Let’s make it happen” joins forces with Worldchefs to drive opennes and innovation

Rungis, France, April 3 2017: In this inaugural one-year global partnership, “Luxembourg  Let’s make it happen” is coming together with Worldchefs for a unique cross-collaboration defined by their mutual values including dynamism and openness.

 The agreement establishes “Luxembourg Let’s make it happen” as a partner for WORLDCHEFS COMPETITION MANAGEMENT APP ©, a revolutionary IT application designed to manage registrations, fees, stats, judging and scoring in large-scale culinary competitions.

 “The purpose of the COMPETITION MANAGEMENT APP © is to increase efficiency, security and transparency in major competitions, by replacing the analog process – which relies on large amounts of loose paper, leads to risks of error and demands a heavy administrative burden – with a dynamic twenty-first century solution,” said Thomas A. Gugler, President, Worldchefs. “We could not have found a better partner for this initiative than “Luxembourg Let’s make it happen”, with their pillars of openness, dynamism, and reliability – the same values which underpin this new innovation in the culinary world.”

 The COMPETITION MANAGEMENT APP © is to be used at all major competitions in the world today.

 “Luxembourg is unforgettable destination that opens unexpected new horizons to its visitors,” said Francine Closener, Secretary of State of the Economy. “Our partnership with Worldchefs gives us a new way to collaborate with an exciting international audience, paving the way for a dynamic exchange that will continue to drive Luxembourg as a destination that inspires.”
