Our first Father's Day cookoff!


Our First Annual  Father's Day Cook-Off was a great success!

On Saturday, as a way of kicking off our celebration of Father's Day, we hosted a cooking competition for fathers and their families -- including, of course, their children. Between 75 and 100 people attended.

Competitors included: Chef Travis Teal, Chef Derek Gamble, Chef Bermand Shiver (2nd-place winner),  Chef Genorris Pontoon (1st-place winner), and Chef Rebecca Welbaum, wife of father participant Mike Welbaum (3rd-place winner).

The contestants were urged to serve up their best appetizer, favorite entree, and favorite dessert.

Our judges were Angela Gary, Cedric Dean, Wes Slice, Andre Black, and Terry McDuffie.

Everybody -- contestants, their children and family, team members, board members, partners, and surrounding community -- had a great time.
