Chef Michael Wray 2nd Chance Fund

My name is Michael Wray. First off. Let me just say that I know I was given an amazing opportunity with winning Hell’s Kitchen. I could have done better but I was dealing with a wicked addiction to pain killers and it forced my hand with dealing in life’s hard choices. Not an excuse. Just a fact. (8 years off abusing) I have been approached by an investor who is willing to match me up to $50,000. That’s a big opportunity. I have 3 fascists to my plan. One is I want to cook for weddings. Use my truck as a mobile kitchen. Second is large multi day music events. Sell personal Short Rib Beef Wellington’s with dipping sauces. Third is to use my new platform to get my message and plan to get off opiates. Most addicts are just scared of the withdrawals. I was terrified. If I can figure out a way. Anyone can. Sharing my experience laired in I want to somehow blend all three and really give back to our reality. I’m truly asking for another chance to make a difference. I have a mission. Thank you for helping me. Live2CookCook2Live
