What an incredible night! Thank you, Polk County, for your unwavering and enthusiastic support of our mission and the children we serve. Thanks to your partnership, this year’s event was our most successful fundraiser in the history of our organization!

The competition was fierce between both the participating Chefs and between our Community Leaders. Congratulations to Chef Patrick Baird, Terrace Grille Lakeland, for winning the Chefs’ Choice Award while Chef Phil Robinson took home the honor of Community Choice. 

Chef Kaelani Leone earned the title of Top Chef of Polk County 2024, while Community Leader Caroline Sharpe was awarded the Top Philanthropic Community Leader for her outstanding fundraising efforts!

Thank you to Publix Super Markets Charities for your exclusive presenting sponsorship and to all of our partners who helped make this evening possible. We are already looking forward to next year’s event!
