The three will be making return appearances to Wilmington.
The newly constructed Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington will have a grand opening in September and the guest list includes several celebrity chefs.
According to a news release Tuesday, celebrity chefs Guy Fieri, Robert Irvine and Emeril Lagasse are expected to join in festivities Sept. 5. The Food Network personalities, who have each come to Wilmington for past GLOW Academy fundraisers, will participate in a tour of the $16 million campus (open to the public) and attend a limited seating ribbon-cutting ceremony.
A gala reception is also planned for donors and sponsors of GLOW Academy with tickets available for $250 each.
GLOW Academy founder Judy Girard was president of the Food Network from 1994 to 2004. She brought in Lagasse to Wilmington in 2016, Fieri in 2018 and Irvine most recently in January. Each appearance helped raise significant funds for the campus, the release states.
