TREVI Italian Restaurant inside The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is hosting a pizza-making competition featuring local media personalities on Wednesday afternoon. $500 will be donated to the winner's favorite charity.

Good Morning Las Vegas anchor Beth Fisher will be competing for Hope for Prisoners; Dave Hall of FOX 5 will be competing for F.E.A.T. (Families for Effective Autism Treatment) of Southern Nevada; and Doug Elfman of the Las Vegas Review-Journal will be competing for Community Cat Coalition of Clark County. Elfman was last year's champion and donated his winnings to The Poppy Foundation.

The panel of judges will feature famed hypnotist and Paris Las Vegas headliner, Anthony Cools; radio personalities, Big D and Johiah of 93.1 The Party KPLV; and the cast of FANTASY at Luxor.

TREVI Executive Chef Jose Navarro will guide the contestants through making each pizza with their pre-selected ingredients. The pies will be judged on taste, creativity and presentation.

Additionally, TREVI will also offer $10 pizzas during the competition to benefit charity.
