ST. PETERSBURG, FL – PARC’s 5th annual Top Chefs event will be held at The Morean Center for Clay on Thursday, August 22nd, 2019. Some of the hottest restaurants in Tampa Bay are paired with individuals from PARC who have received Culinary Training to collaborate on mouthwatering entrées that will be served to hungry guests. Signature drinks and decadent deserts will also be provided throughout the night, and guests will get the opportunity to place their vote for categories like Fan Favorite, Best All Around, Best Flavor, Best Presentation and more.

PARC’s Culinary Arts Program is just one of many unique programs and essential services we provide. The program supports any aspirations the individuals might have, whether it be helping a caretaker make dinner or getting a job in the hospitality industry. Besides helping students become more independent, the Culinary Arts Program also engages fine and gross motor skills and incorporates basic math and reading. With fundraising events like Top Chefs, we can expand programs like the Culinary Arts Program to accommodate more students, offer higher levels of classes and ensure our kitchen stays stocked with plenty of tools and ingredients.

Participating Vendors scheduled to attend include Osteria Tampa, The Library St Pete, Rusty’s Bistro, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bulla Gastrobar, Bake’n Babes, (swah-rey), The Hyppo Gourmet Ice Pops, The Dessert Spot – Toffee To Go, Mother Kombucha and Kahwa Coffee…just to name a few!
