The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary hosted its 37th Annual Celebrity Chefs Tasting Luncheon and Silent Auction on March 23 at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. Local celebrities, media personalities, government officials and business leaders dished up bites of their favorite recipes, while participants bid in an eclectic, silent auction filled with artwork, collectibles, services and getaways. All attendees got to take home a commemorative cookbook containing the recipes from the tasting, and all proceeds went to benefit the programs of the Salvation Army of Northeast Florida.

“It’s always an honor for us to collaborate with community partners and businesses when we work to serve our community’s needs,” said Major Keath Biggers, Northeast Florida Area Commander. “We appreciate their support of The Salvation Army here in Jacksonville. Help at this event helps sustain program services provided through The Towers Center of Hope.”
