Both Guy Fieri and Homer Murray are chefs. Hunter launched his own restaurant, 21 Greenpoint, in Brooklyn and the Caddyshack Sports Bar & Grille in Illinois. This wouldn’t be the first time the Murray Father son duo has cooked up headlines. In 2016, Bill Murray served as a surprise guest bartender at 21 Greenpoint to a massive crowd of fans.

The cook-off will help raise money for the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF). The organization has been giving out grants of $500 to restaurant employees affected by the COVID 19 pandemic. The RERF charity has raised $22.5 million to date.
