A Ducks player, coach or broadcaster will be paired with each chef to assist in meal preparation tableside for their guests. The evening will begin with a reception at 5:30 p.m. and a seated dinner program at 7:00 p.m. The dinner program will be co-emceed by Ducks television play-by-play announcer Brian Hayward and Ducks television host Kent French.
