The 15th Annual Great Chefs of Tampa Bay
Food, Fun and Family Support – Your Chance to Make a Difference!
The 15th annual Great Chefs of Tampa Bay is set for Saturday, May 11, from 6 to 9pm. The event showcases hors d’oeuvres prepared by talented Tampa Bay Chefs, wine, beer, an auction and live entertainment -- with all proceeds benefiting Family Resources. The funds raised will be used to directly benefit children and teens who may be abused, homeless, troubled and in need of help.
This year’s event will take place at the spectacular Faith Mansion and Gardens. This private residence is an impressive example of Spanish Revival architecture and is located in a lush tropical oasis at 320 Park Street South in St. Petersburg. Guests will have an opportunity to tour the spectacular home and grounds and enjoy its unique furnishings, artwork and craftsmanship.
Family Resources is a non-profit social service provider for families in Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsborough and Manatee counties. Founded more than 40 years ago, Family Resources now operates 11 exceptional programs, including the SafePlace2B shelters in Clearwater and St. Petersburg for children between the ages of 10 and 17. Last year Family Resources helped thousands of our neighbors, including 781 families who received counseling and 859 young people who received shelter.
Other Family Resources programs include Kinship Care, which supports grandparents raising their grandchildren; Street Safe, a program that offers food, clothing and referrals to homeless young people; and a Teen Outreach Program, which has been proven effective at increasing academic success and reducing teen pregnancy.
