2nd Annual Top Shelter Chef Contest Supports CAADC Homeless Shelters

The 2nd Annual "Top Shelter Chef Contest" is March 2 at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church and will benefit three Delaware County homeless shelters.

Amateur chefs from five Delaware County churches and synagogues will don their aprons and face-off for the honor of "Top Shelter Chef" in a fundraiser to benefit three Delaware County shelters.

The 2nd Annual "Top Shelter Chef Contest" is scheduled for Saturday, March 2 at 6 p.m. at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church (located at 229 Powell Lane in Upper Darby, PA 19082).

The contest will benefit the Community Action Agency of Delaware County, Inc.’s (CAADC) Save Our Shelters (S.O.S.) Campaign. The S.O.S. Campaign supports CAADC’s emergency shelters serving families and individuals from all of Delaware County including the Family Management Center, Life Center of Eastern Delaware County and the Wesley House.

Currently, 52 different volunteer groups cook and serve meals at the Life Center on a rotating basis. The contest will feature volunteers from five of those organizations which will provide samples to all attendees and vie for the title of "Top Shelter Chef 2013."

Tickets for the event are $25 and all proceeds will benefit CAADC’s shelters. Attendance is limited. Tickets may be purchased by clicking the “TICKETS” button at www.caadc.org. Tickets may also be purchased by calling Tammy at 610-734-5770.
