“Our goal is for this to become one of the can’t-miss food events in our region,” ACT in Faith board president Denise Antonelli said in a prepared statement.
March 23 will be an evening of food sampling and friendly chef competition at the West Chester University Alumni & Foundation Center. It’s the sixth year ACT in Faith has presented the Chef’s Best event.
“We’re excited about the new venue this year, and the chef competition has really seemed to galvanize people’s interest,” said Antonelli, who is also a partner at the West Chester law firm Gawthrop Greenwood, PC.
