Chef Fund-raiser to Benefit Gray House Rescheduled for March 2
CHICOPEE — The Small Plates Chef Fund-raiser to benefit the Gray House has been rescheduled to Monday, March 2. It was originally scheduled for Jan. 26, then Feb. 9, but was postponed both times due to a snowstorm. The Gray House is hoping “the third time is the charm,” said Dena Calvanese, executive director at the Gray House.
Chef Hubert Gottschlicht of the Munich Haus in Chicopee will hold a cooking class and demonstration at the Munich Haus from 6 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased through PayPal at bit.ly/1AciOLh. Tickets must be purchased in advance, as seats are limited. Participants can watch the master chef prepare several German delicacies and join in or sit back and enjoy the presentation. A light buffet will be provided in addition to a cash bar.
“This is a great way to enjoy a night out with friends and eat some fabulous food, all while benefiting a good cause,” said Dena Calvanese, executive director of the Gray House. “We’re planning on holding these events on a monthly basis, if possible, with different area restaurants. We held our first Chef Fund-raiser in November with Samuel’s Sports Bar at the Hall of Fame, which sold out quickly.”
The Gray House is a small, neighborhood human-service agency located at 22 Sheldon St. in the North End of Springfield. Its mission is to help neighbors facing hardships to meet their immediate and transitional needs by providing food, clothing, and educational services in a safe, positive environment.
