Press release from: Ann Storck Center

Fort Lauderdale, FL (September 26, 2017) - Ann Storck Center (ASC) invites you to be a part of its 24th Annual Celebrity Chefs Food Tasting & Auction on Friday, October 6, 2017 starting at 6 p.m. with a silent auction reception and the Grand Tasting beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. This signature event features dozens of culinary selections created by South Florida’s most innovative and celebrated chefs, incredible live entertainment, a lavish silent auction and more. The artwork featured on this year’s invitation, and serving as the theme of the event, was created by ASC individual Mindy. Showcasing original, hand-painted art by ASC individuals is a Celebrity Chefs tradition.

“This event is not only fun, and of course tasty, but it also funds the many essential programs and services we provide to the hundreds of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities that we serve daily. The unpredictability of state funding doesn’t always work in our favor. Therefore, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses to make sure that all of the needs of our individuals are met, and when possible, exceeded,” ASC’s Chief Executive Officer Charlotte Mather-Taylor said. “The annual Celebrity Chefs event is a great way to support the Ann Storck Center and have fun at the same time.”

Since its inception in 1993 under the leadership of former Board President Mr. Marvin Gutter, the Celebrity Chefs Food Tasting & Auction has garnered a reputation as one of South Florida’s premier fundraising events and the most delectable night in South Florida. This year’s event chair is ASC Board Member Susan Renneisen, Vice President of Community Affairs and Special Events for Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Presenting Sponsors include Carl & Angela Perez, Joel & Marcia Hochberg & Family, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood, and the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Other sponsors include Sous Chef Sponsors Dr. Alan & Joan Ast and the Perlmutter Family, Cuisiner Sponsors Florida Community Bank, Leo Goodwin Foundation, and Tobias Financial Advisors, Silent Auction Reception Sponsor Memorial Healthcare System, and Photo Booth Sponsor Coral Springs Auto Mall.

“Seminole Hard Rock has been a proud supporter of Ann Storck Center since we opened in 2004,” said Renneisen. “One of the ways the Ann Storck Center teaches is through music therapy in the Expressive Arts program. In addition to being a continued sponsor of its events and programs, and keeping true to our Hard Rock brand, we donate guitars to the Center’s music program.”
