Gawthrop Greenwood Sponsors “Chef’s Best” Competition

CaptureThe Korean short rib slider from Side Bar & Restaurant is this year’s winner of the 5th Annual Chef’s Best in West Chester.

Gawthrop Greenwood was a major sponsor of the event March 31st that raised more than $25,000 for ACT in Faith of Greater West Chester. The organization will use the funds to help prevent eviction and utility shut-offs, as well as offer employment support, stock a Community Cupboard, and continue its Neighbors Feeding Neighbors frozen meal program.

More than 180 supports also sampled specialties from Avalon, VuDu Lounge/High Street Caffé and Spence 312. There was also a silent auction for items donated by faith communities, groups, and individuals who support ACT in Faith’s mission.

“Over the years this event has evolved beyond restaurants in our area,” says Denise Antonelli, President of the Board of Directors of ACT in Faith of Greater West Chester and an associate at Gawthrop Greenwood. “Some of the region’s premier businesses have rallied to sponsor the event in support of those in our community who need assistance; this year was even better.”
