Chef Michael Wray 2nd Chance Fund

My name is Chef Michael Wray. I was the season one winner of Hell’s Kitchen. Cooking and Cheffing is my passion. The chance I earned from Hell’s Kitchen to begin my dream of being my own boss and using my new platform to bring my food to the world was wasted through drug abuse and addiction. Divorce, and most, loosing my lil new born Trixie GoGo broke my heart and spirit. Sending me into a tail spin of addiction that 5years after my win. I was living under the Burbank Blvd. underpass off the 5freeway in Los Angeles. The amount of guilt I have carried for letting down Gordon Ramsay, Hell’s Kitchen, myself and most of all, the fans of the show. Everyone who believes in me and my passion and skills. I have spent the last 6 years without relapsing and earning my right to be an amazing chef again. Help me to get my food truck. I want to go and cook for you. Road trip of culinary delight. I want to show everyone I deserve the be a Hell’s Kitchen winner. I know in my heart I can’t do it without help from all you. I want to spread my message of ”Live2CookCook2Live “ to the world and to help bring awareness to opioid abuse in the food and drink industry and show people that YOU can beat addiction. If I did. Everyone should have hope.
