7th Annual Chefs Showcase at the Fort Harrison to be a Blockbuster this June 2nd
When the opening scene begins like a horror film or tragedy, it takes more than just one person to convince the Director that this isn't how the film is going to end. The annual Chef's Showcase provides such support to Pinellas County youth.
Co-sponsored by Tampa Bay Magazine, the event will feature a 'cinema' theme, each course taking its inspiration from a work of art. Tickets are $150 to attend and seating is limited to 120. Chefs participating in this year's event include American Culinary Federation Tampa Bay President Chef Rene Marquis, Chef Bobby Shirley of Clearsky on Cleveland and Chef Bill Brown of William Dean Chocolates. The menu and kitchen is overseen by the Church of Scientology's Executive Chef, Zoltan Vajna. The Fort Harrison is the international religious retreat for the Church of Scientology.
Though the multi-course, plate-service meal with wine pairings and live entertainment will create a night to remember, the focus of the event is raising funds for at-risk youth and their families. The Clearwater Community Volunteers has been providing food, toys and entertainment to Pinellas County families in need since 1992. The Children's Home Network, established 125 years ago, provides a broad array of services to children. As the event is underwritten by sponsors, all of the ticket sales will go directly to the charities.
"Children whose lives start out with challenges need help to create a happy ending," said event organizer Lisa Mansell. "Humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote that 'When children become unimportant to a society, that society has forfeited its future'. The Children's Home Network and Clearwater Community Volunteers are ensuring that Pinellas County Children will have a future and we are proud to help these organizations."
