Each of these remarkable honorees represents the more than 150,000 children who receive care at Norton Children’s Hospital each year.Bourbon & Bowties has raised over $2 million over the past 10 years


This year’s event also remembered and honored former lead chef and host, the late Dean Corbett. “Chef Deano” was a dear friend to and ambassador for Norton Children’s Hospital. He cared deeply about each of the honorees, and he worked tirelessly every year to help plan Bourbon & Bowties and help raise funds to make sure all children throughout the region receive care designed just for them at Norton Children’s Hospital. We are deeply appreciative of Chef Deano’s commitment, and we are honored to continue his legacy through Bourbon & Bowties.


Through the generosity of time from 47 local chefs and the donationsof more than 1,000 attendees, the 10th annual event raised more than $342,000 for Norton Children’s including support for the Child Life and the “Heel, Dog, Heal” pet therapy program sat Norton Children’s Hospital, Norton Children’s Medical Center and Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital.
