The fall social season is in full swing and that means it’s perfect timing to wrap up the 2012 Event Book & Giving Guide as we prepare to recognize the best in charitable and community functions at the The Big Event. Aksarben Cinema will be the November 29th scene of the red carpet gala. We are pleased to announce that Attitude on Food will be the official event caterer. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at SpiritofOmaha.com.

This year’s celebration represents a milestone for us as The Big Event turns five, so we’re asking for your help in making this one extra special. You are invited to submit a video that honors your favorite Big Event nominee. In two minutes or less, tell us how the organization, their work or their event made an impact on you, family, friends or the community as a whole.

Don’t worry too much about production values for this one. We’ll be judging entries on message conveyed, not on quality. Speaking of quality video, the winner will receive a video package from Big Event partner Amoura Productions. Visit SpiritofOmaha.com to learn more about how you might win.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our cover personality, Clayton Chapman, co-owner and chef of the Grey Plume in Midtown Crossing. Clayton was a joy to work with and has a great story, as do all of the chefs profiled in our cover story. We are also delighted to feature in this issue (page 12) the honorees of this year's Metropolitan Community College Hospitality Hall of Fame Dinner. Look for more foodie buzz in Q&A’s from the chefs (page 14) who participated in the Omaha Restaurant Association's Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen.

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we’re proud to feature on these pages stories of triumph and tears. I would like to thank the women who shared their stories with us and we hope that you are more than merely better educated and informed after reading these profiles and the stories on the important work of Bravadas Wig Design and One Drake Place’s Ribbon Foundation. We hope that you are inspired to act in giving your time, talent and treasure in battling the disease that changes the lives of so many around us.

One final note… the clock is ticking on voting for The Big Event. Be sure to support the best in our community before polls close on October 19th. Visit SpiritofOmaha.com to cast your vote!
