Chefs for Habitat event set for Sept. 13

 Chefs for Habitat: A Culinary Celebration is a fabulous party held annually at Dove Pointe that raises money to renovate a home for a deserving low income family.

The group’s Chef’s Committee has created what promises to be a magical evening of fine food and festivities for Habitat’s fifth annual signature fundraising event.

This year’s event will begin with a cocktail hour with complimentary champagne and fabulous crab dip by Roadie Joe’s.

The Celebrity Waiter’s race will begin at 6:30 with 12 community leaders making their way through architect Eric Cattelier of Becker Morgan’s spectacular obstacle course.

The winners include the person who makes it through without spilling the glass of wine and the person who raise the most money for Habitat.

After the Waiter’s Race guests will proceed to the ballroom where they will sample luscious offerings from Juan Flores of Cactus Taverna, Gerry Patt of Chef on a Roll, Chris Miles from the Irish Penny Pub & Grill, Adam Sanders from Jules, Phil Hitch from Market Street, Joel Oliver from Mojo’s and Arturo Suazo from SoBo’s Wine Beerstro.  Vocalist Sarah McCabe will inspire with her jazz renditions.

Black Diamond will provide a carving station of their delicious roast beef paired with pasta salad.

Dessert will follow in the foyer with offerings of mini cupcakes from pastry chef Susan Patt of Cake Art, luscious pies from Tina Padilla of Taylors BBQ, and cookies from Chick-fil-a.

The live and silent auction focus on two themes: “There’s no Place Like Home” which celebrates everything that makes our homes special, from landscaping and art to paint and décor and “The Great Escape” which will offer everything from wonderfully prepared meals, weekend getaways to an African Safari.

The event will raise money to renovate a home at 1007 East Church St. for Habitat’s Family Partner Family, Scott and Erin Roberts and their four children. The Roberts, who have been great neighbors on Martin Street, will be moving to a larger home donated to Habitat by a generous donor.

The event is held from 5:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. For further information, or to purchase reservations, visit www.chefsforhabitat.com or call 410-546-1551.
