Las Vegas will be well-represented when PBS’ Ming Tsai takes his annual Cooking Live fundraiser virtual Sunday, thanks to appearances by Imagine Dragons bassist Ben McKee, UNLV grad Guy Fieri and chef José Andrés, who operates several restaurants on the Strip.
They’ll all be part of an Instagram Live broadcast that will also include appearances by chefs Aaron Sanchez and Amanda Freitag, as well as Reese Witherspoon and Paris Hilton.
Every year, Tsai hosts a benefit for Family Reach, an organization that assists families with the financial burdens that accompany a cancer diagnosis. This year, however, the event is going virtual, in response to the COVID-19 crisis. From 1 to 5 p.m. Pacific on Sunday, celebrities from around the world will join the chef on Instagram to put their cooking skills to the test. McKee’s show-closing appearance at 5 p.m., which will also run on the band’s Instagram account, @imaginedragons, will also help raise funds for Imagine Dragons’ own Tyler Robinson Foundation, which has been working to help families battling pediatric cancer since 2013.
