Join us for a night of delicious food and fellowship while raising much-needed funds for children from birth through age five with special needs or who are at risk for developmental delays.

Chefs will create and prepare their signature dish (tapas-style) accompanied with a wine or libation that complements the flavors of the dish. Guests will enjoy a cash bar, silent and live auctions, live music, and of course, a tasting of signature dishes from Polk County’s leading Chefs. Guests will have the opportunity to try each Chef’s signature offering.

Guest judges will evaluate each Chef on their creation to award the title of “Top Chef of Polk County 2024.” In addition, guests will vote for the most popular item to win the “Community Choice” title. The Community Leader that raises the most funds for Achievement Academy through donated auction item(s), special events, and online voting will earn the “Top Philanthropic” award. Chefs will sample each
signature dish prior to the event to vote for the “Chefs’ Choice” award.

This event is intended for guests 21 and older.

Sponsorship opportunities are available here. For more information, contact Kristin Aiken at (863) 683-6504 or
