Last night we had a wonderful Guest Chef dinner! Our long time friend and supporter Sue Liberman came and prepared a fabulous meal for us along with tasty desserts! It is so fun to gather around a table with great food and wonderful company. THANK YOU SUE!!!

Our Guest Chef for a Dinner program began on November 6th, 2011. Our first Guest Chefs were our friend Brett’s mom and her husband, Sylvia and Max Reinhardt. They were just amazing, VERY creative and fun. The meal was DELICIOUS. We were treated to a trout souffle, broccoli with shiitake soy ginger sauce, beets, potatoes anna and home-made bread (with sun dried tomatoes, herbs and olives)!
Sylvia also presented us with a figurine that she made, (pictured above) of a chef about to trip over a cat! We have since had every one or our Guest Chefs take a photo with it! What a fabulous way to kick off our program!
Since we have started the Guest Chef for a Dinner program we have had so many wonderful people come and cook for us. Some of our great friends and supporters, along with Daniela’s parents, all the way from Germany!
In September of 2013, we were treated to a dinner prepared by Jack Hanny, who was a White House Chef and cooked for 6 different Presidents! We were so lucky to have him in our home with a delicious meal and telling exciting stories of his life.
The past 3 years of our Guest Chef program have been absolutely wonderful. We have had so many good times around the dining table. From the delicious food to the great conversations, we appreciate everyone who has come in and spent time with us.
If you or someone you know might be interested in participating in our Guest Chef program, contact us for more information! We’d love to have you! Email Amber Rexrode at firstname.lastname@example.org to hear more and to book a date!

Happy New Year! Thank you to all of our generous friends and donors who supported us in 2014! At Casino Night, the June Party and our Comedy Night, we had so much fun seeing friends, families and supporters along with making new ones! This year we are excited to start renovating a kitchen in one of our homes to comply with ADA guidelines along with installing a HVAC system!
