For several years the Louisville Salvation Army has run a Culinary Arts Training program which “helps individuals living in poverty learn vocational skills and self-confidence to support life-long self-sufficiency,” according to a news release. The annual Chefs for Hope dinner raises money for this worthy endeavor. 100 percent of the proceeds of the dinner will benefit the students’ classroom training. To date, 125 men and women have graduated the 10-week program, of which Sullivan University is a partner.

The dinner will be at Big Spring Country Club, Dutchman’s Ln., Saturday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m. The multi-course dinner will be prepared by Anoosh Shariat of Anoosh Bistro, Dean Corbett of Corbett’s: An American Place and Eq & Jack’s Lounge, Daniel Stage of the Louisville Country Club, Brian Curry of Napa River Grill, Richard Doehring of Anoosh Bistro and Josh Hillyard of Big Spring Country Club.

Tickets for the tax deductible dinner cost $150 each and may be purchased by calling 931-5420.
