Award-winning chef brings national awareness to PKD by competing on Food Network's Chopped All-Stars
Chef Michael Psilakis competed against fellow celebrity chefs in the fourth season of the Chopped All-Stars tournament on the Food Network in May. Michael was the runner up in the competition, coming very close to winning $75,000 for the PKD Foundation, his charity of choice. Through his time on the show, the PKD community came together to cheer him on, and he helped raise awareness of PKD on a national level. Michael thought of the PKD Foundation when he was asked to participate in Chopped, and he hoped it would be a great way to raise awareness. "When I was asked to do Chopped All-Stars and win money for a charity, it piqued my interest," he said.
