Bruce Kalman, who was a competitor on Season 15 of Bravo's Top Chef, is working hard to give back to his hometown of Paramus, New Jersey, where an accident on a school bus with students from East Brook Middle School (which he attended as a youth) killed a student and a teacher.

On July 12, he's hosting Chefs for Paramus Strong, a tasting event that will benefit the victims' families via the Paramus Children’s Health Foundation, and has brought together a group of chef friends, including former competitors/castmates Tyler Anderson and Chris Scott and Season 2 winner Ilan Hall to cook for the occasion.

“Growing up in Paramus and attending East Brook Middle School, this is very close to my heart,” Kalman said in a statement. “As a new parent, I can’t even fathom what these families are going through. They need our support and we are here for them. I’ve brought together an amazing group of chefs to create Chefs for Paramus Strong, each will be dishing out some delicious bites for a great cause.”

If you're in the area, here's how to get tickets.
