Front row, l–r: Stephanie Knickle, Philicia Johnson, Lori-Beth Dwyer, Ibrah Sanoh, Jeff Ellsworth and Ashley Bee.The 2nd Annual Cooking for KidSport fundraising event was held on April 12 and raised $18,000. The 200 attendees were treated to a fantastic dining experience and some unique entertainment featuring some local celebrities showcasing some of their culinary skills.

With April 12 being Humboldt Jersey Day, attendees were given the option of wearing their favourite jersey in honour of Humboldt and many people took advantage of the opportunity to sport the colours of their favorite team. Mike Shannon of Newcap Radio and Ryan MacDonald of Key Murray Law (co-presenting sponsors) paid tribute to Humboldt and asked the attendees to join them in a moment of silence for the terrible tragedy.

Emcee Zack Bell then introduced the celebrity chefs. The Holland Hurricanes, sponsored by ServiceMaster PEI were in the leadoff spot featuring Lori-Beth Dwyer, Ibrah Sanoh and Albert Roche. Next up came the defending champion UPEI Panthers, sponsored by Irving Oil, featuring Stephanie Knickle, Kiera Rigby and Gerard Murphy of Ocean 100.3. The Charlottetown Islanders, sponsored by Century 21 Colonial Realty were announced next with Craig Foster, Jason MacLean and Ashley Bee of Hot 105.5. 

The final team was a single entry with well-known Islander Jeff Ellsworth pinch hitting for the Summerside Western Capitals team, sponsored by the City of Summerside. The Caps were unable to participate due to scheduling conflicts. Jeff is a KidSport Ambassador and was excited to fill in and take on the challenge.  

The Island Storm, sponsored by Sports Centre Physiotherapy were also unable to participate due to a playoff game happening at the same time.
