An Event For Blue Ridge CASA for Children
2018 will host the first annual Top Chef Harrisonburg event. The event will host a friendly competition amongst Chefs from local Harrisonburg restaurants, with the winning Chef receiving the title of “Top Chef Harrisonburg”. Votes will be tallied from both event attendees and a judge’s panel. In addition to the Chef’s dishes, the evening will feature Bluestone Vineyard wine, live entertainment by Ben Kunkle from The Hackens Boys, and door prizes. The event will be emceed by WHSV News Anchor, Kyle Rogers.
All of the ticket proceeds and sponsorship fees that we charge businesses to participate will go directly to Blue Ridge CASA. Blue Ridge CASA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency which trains community volunteers to advocate for local children who have been abused or neglected. The proceeds will provide funding for a full-time advocate manager for the Harrisonburg-Rockingham area. This staff person will recruit, train, and supervise the volunteer advocates. The advocates work directly for Judge O’Donnell in the Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court of Harrisonburg & Rockingham County. For CASA staff and volunteers, the ultimate goal is to help ensure that these children in protective care find safe, permanent homes where they can thrive.
At each Chef station, two hors d’oeuvre style dishes will be provided. To keep a level playing field, one item is required to be vegetarian and one item is required to be a protein. In addition to the “Top Chef” title, the winning Chef will also receive a top of the line Chef’s knife.
Next event in 2019, stay tuned!
