Metropolitan Detroit Chiefs of Police, Fire, and other public safety agencies will don chef aprons and hats on Thursday, October 10, from 6:00 ‐ 8:30 p.m. in support of Detroit’s youth at the Max Fisher Music Theater in Detroit.
Chiefs Cooking For Kids brings together a wide range of law enforcement and fire officials’ favorite recipes in a community‐wide effort to raise money for The Youth Connection, a non‐profit 501(c)3 agency that connects our youth to a brighter future.
The Chief whose dish raises the most money through sponsorships will be crowned the winner and receive the title of Metropolitan Detroit’s “Chief Chef.” All Chiefs are trying hard to topple Chief Ron Haddad, Dearborn Chief of Police, who has won Chief Chef three years in a row.
But close on his heels is Wayne State University Chief Anthony Holt. Awards will also be given out for Best Appetizer, Best Entrée, Best Dessert, and the Chef of Blue Star Catering will also pick a “Chef’s Choice” award winner whose dish will be featured on the catering menu for the next year.
Chief Holt has walked away with either best entrée or best appetizer every year he has participated.
The Board of Directors of The Youth Connection is hosting the event, featuring an evening of fine food, fabulous shopping, and music. A silent auction to benefit The Youth Connection will be held during the event with a wide variety of items for sale.
