Chefs’ tasty efforts assist charity

Celebrity chefs served up tasty morsels of food and fun at the 29th annual Celebrity Chefs Tasting and Silent Auction.

Done in support of the Salvation Army of Jacksonville Women’s Auxiliary, the event drew many hungry diners to the Prime Osborne Convention Center on Mar. 19. Funds raised from the event will support a child development center, the Towers Memorial Social Services Center, an adult rehabilitation center and The Salvation Army Senior Center.

“It will be some time before we know our ‘bottom line,’ however, I can say that the Community has once again been very generous,” said Major Staci McWilliams. “We feel certain that The Women’s Auxiliary will be able to full fill the needs and wishes of the many Salvation Army programs that rely on their yearly fundraising.”

Among the more than one dozen chefs serving everything from gorgonzola truffles to vegetarian collard greens were Peter Bragan Jr. of the Jacksonville Suns, Duval County Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland and Lisa Mancini, CSX vice president.
