Here's to building skills AND a stronger community!!
And the winner is....
On Thursday, March 22 over 235 people gathered at the WCU Alumni & Foundation Center for the 7th Annual Chef's Best. This year's guests enjoyed the delicious offering of Mercato (2017's Best of Chef's Best champion), Bar Avalon, The Social Lounge, and Saloon 151. The voice of the voters was heard loud and clear with Chef Melissa Marino's bacon burbon meatballs with spice mango pica and dill creme fraiche taking the 2018 Best of Chef's Best title home to Saloon 151. In addition to the savlory competion menus attendees were entertained by the WCU High Street Harmonics and enjoy desserts donated by West Chester's Gemelli and Yori's Bakery, and Whole Foods, Exton.
Once again, ACT in Faith would like to thank our EXTREMELY generous Annual Sponsors and auction basket donors, our 2018 guests, Brandywine Catering, and everyone who helped make the night a huge success, raising over $26,000 for our mission.
