It was a packed house at Green Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill on Friday, November 4th for Chefs for Silver Springs 2016. More than 375 guests turned out to enjoy a fun-filled evening in support of the children and programs of Silver Springs – Martin Luther School.
Guests were treated to a delicious meal designed and introduced by celebrated Philadelphia chef Marcie Turney. To learn more about Marcie’s restaurants, click here. WIP Radio host Glen Macnow was the evening’s MC for a program that included an inspiring performance by the Silver Springs children’s choir, compelling speakers, and silent and live auctions that had the dining room jumping as guests energetically bid on experiences that included a trip to Africa, a private dinner party with Chef Marcie Turney, and more. Guests bid on and won more than 150 auction items including jewelry, fun experiences, once-in-a-lifetime vacations, and tickets to sporting events and shows, and more.
Chefs 2016 was our most successful ever! Thanks to the tremendous support of countless friends, the evening raised more than $200,000 for Silver Springs’ programs! Approximately half of the proceeds will enable Silver Springs to make much-needed improvements to the children’s residence on our Plymouth Meeting campus.
We extend a HUGE thank you to all who supported the evening – the many sponsors, donors, Chef Turney, the fantastic kitchen and catering staff at Green Valley Country Club, and a wonderful cadre of volunteers. Our thanks to those who served on the planning committee or volunteered at the dinner, purchased tickets or a table, sponsored the event, contributed items to the auction, bid on silent or live auction items, and donated toward the evenint’s appeal to help improve the children’s living spaces… ALL instrumental in making Chefs 2016 an incredible evening to support the children and families of Silver Springs- Martin Luther School. Thank you!
