Our 15th Annual Great Chef Adventure
Was A Delicious Success!


Our signature fundraiser, the 15th annual Great Chef Adventure, was held on February 10 at Mariner Sands Country Club. Following an invocation by The Very Reverend Heidi Kinner, the packed house enjoyed a three-course luncheon featuring the cuisine of the area's most accomplished and prestigious chefs. Silent and live auctions were held before and after the meal, with all proceeds benefiting Samaritan Center’s Scholarship Fund.

This year's theme, “Together,” celebrated how our community, volunteers and staff – and most importantly, the boys’ family members and caregivers – work together to play a part in each boy’s success. Keynote speaker Chris English, Director of the Children’s Crisis Center at New Horizons, moved many in the crowd to tears when he shared that he was once a Samaritan Center boy. What a success story!

Thanks to our donors, volunteers, staff members, and the talented chefs who made this day the sweet success that it was, as well as the following sponsors who helped to make it all possible: Northern Trust, Wallace Auto Group, CenterState Bank, NisAir Conditioning & Heating.
