MERCATO VOTED "BEST OF CHEF'S BEST" 2017
Chef's Best 2017 was an overwhelming success raising close to $32,000! Over 180 guests feasted on some of the area's best dishes and desserts, thoroughly enjoying the event at it's new WCU Foundation Center venue. These funds will allow us to the much-needed gap services and support needed by so many in our community. ACT in Faith is honored and blessed to have the support of the 2017 restaurant competitors, dessert donors, and long list of corporate and individual sponsors.
We need to tell you what you've done. In 2016, you provided support...funds for eviction and utility shut-off prevention, transportations, phone minutes, security deposits, car expenses, fuel oil, education and pre-employment expenses, resume writing, groceries and so much more....to 404 different West Chester individuals/households!!
You literally CHANGED lives!
