The 21stannual Wheeling Health Right's Chef's Auction is being held Friday night at Wesbanco Arena.

The money from the event helps the uninsured in the Ohio Valley.

Kathie Brown, executive director for Wheeling's Health Right, said even with the Affordable Care Act many are still in need.

"A lot of people couldn't afford to or chose not to go into the marketplace for insurance," Brown said. "Some people just didn't know and they can still be patients here."

Eighteen chefs from across the region are showing off their talents at the event. Awards will be given at the end of the evening.

This year's dinner theme is "Rock-around-the-Clock." Brown said all the money raised stays local.
