Here is some information about how you and Chef can work together to make a difference

Chef Mark is active in the community and is proud to support the following nonprofits with donations, volunteering and appearances.


Non-profit, No Kill animal Shelter

Scholarships intended to remove the barriers a homeless or student in poverty faces

Fundraising Opportunities

Partnering with the Appliance Factory and Mattress Kingdom, Chef Mark proudly supports various organizations with a few being Public and Private Schools, Animal Shelters, and Medical research organizations. One of the ways Chef Mark gives back to the community is through the auction of his in-home cooking classes which are valued at $3,500. The donation of Mark’s cooking class have allowed him to raise $3,000-$9,000 to charity during each auction event.


In exchange for the donation of a cooking class, we request the following:

-Live auction item only.

-An invitation for our Local Celebrity Chef to attend the event so he can see firsthand how the auction item is represented.

-The ability to speak at the event and/or have a short video played to show the audience what they are bidding on.  Our Chef has spoken at many events and is easily recognized from local television, radio, and print media. 

-A mention for Appliance Factory and Mattress Kingdom in the event program.

If you are interested in Chef Mark attending your gala and donating an in-home cooking class at the live auction, you can fill out the information on the Contact page or click the donation request button located down below.
