Celebrity Chef Dishes up Support for NASCAR on Fox/Autism Awareness Initiative

February 27, 2008

Chef Franklin Becker was personally moved when Autism Speaks was selected for FOX Sports' year-round charitable initiative and wanted to show his support the best way he knew how. This weekend, the Brooklyn-born chef travels to Las Vegas Motor Speedway and prepares meals for the network's massive NASCAR broadcast crew to show his gratitude for raising Autism awareness through FOX Sports Supports.

“Autism is something close to my heart, as my young son is affected by it, and I am thrilled to be cooking at FOX's NASCAR race to support the cause,” said Becker, an executive chef at Brasserie on 53rd Street in New York City.

FOX Sports Supports, the sports network's on-air charitable initiative devoted to raising awareness, providing financial assistance and spurring volunteerism for select health related charities, selected Autism Speaks to highlight during its entire NASCAR on FOX season.
