Chef Curtis Stone is tall, blond, and handsome, so it’s little wonder that his Discovery Channel and TLC show “Take Home Chef,” a dream show where Stone meets a woman in a grocery store and convinces her to take him home to prepare a gourmet meal, has been internationally successful. This Friday, though, Stone isn’t going home with anyone. Instead, he’ll be the host at the Builders Appliance Center, where he’ll lead a VIP lunch (currently sold out) and general-reception cooking demonstration. Proceeds benefit the Cancer League of Colorado. Friday, VIP lunch 11 a.m., reception noon. $75. 1880 W. Oxford Ave., Englewood, 303-641-7504
