Celebrity Chef, week five— Ask the chefs

Staff Report

PORTSMOUTH — The 9th Annual Celebrity Chef Dinner and Silent Auction is Tuesday, March 14, at the SOMC Friends Community Center, with doors opening at 6 p.m.

This exciting event, sponsored by The Counseling Center, is a fundraiser for the Summer Outreach Club, now in its 28th year. The Summer Outreach Club, a part of prevention and outreach services, is a nine-week summer day camp program that is free to children ages 5-12 in the community.

The camp offers free breakfast and lunch, motivational, educational and recreational activities in a hands-on learning environment, all while partnering with multiple community agencies and volunteers within the area who graciously teach classes, mentor and support over 120 kids each day.

Every year, the success of the event is due to the participants that partner with Celebrity Chef Committee planners to make this event a huge success for area kids who attend the program. The final week of the Chef Spotlights is dedicated to our dinner buffet and dessert chefs.

This event would not be possible without these talented, philanthropic, community stars who often give of their time and talents to support positive community initiatives. Our Celebrity Dinner Buffet Chefs are Will Robinson and Nick Montavon, and our Celebrity Dessert Chefs are Julie Blackburn and Alyssa Logan and Telena Pate.

The Celebrity Chef Dinner and Silent Auction Committee would like to thank all of our generous sponsors, patrons, auction donors and those that have purchased tickets to this now sold out event. We look forward to an exciting night of food and fun!
