During an emergency or disaster situation there is very little time to stop, plan, and prepare for your response. You respond quickly, and you hope effectively, as you rely on what you know in that moment about emergency response. All too often, volunteers, local leaders, and neighbors aren’t coordinated effectively or don’t know how to get in touch with relief organizations that can help them. Training in emergency planning, disaster preparedness, and relief coordination is needed. World Cares Center was created to fill that very need. Once a year, we gather the emergency response community together to have a spirited, competitive culinary cook off in which firehouse chefs and restaurant chefs battle it out for bragging rights (lots of bragging) and the title of Iron Skillet® Champion. Emergency responders, community leaders, corporate sponsors, and everyday citizens gather for a festive night of food, drink, and merriment as they savor the dishes that flow freely throughout the night. This year’s event on October 22, 2012 at Crimson restaurant from 6pm-10pm will bring down the house! It’s World Cares Center’s way of giving back to the emergency response community, but it also allows us to thank those people who consistently get involved for the greater good. With this one night, we stop time and enjoy ourselves. World Cares Center also takes 100% of the proceeds and puts it to good use with its educational training programs and outreach efforts throughout the coming year.
There’s still time to get a taste of these mouth-watering dishes. For tickets, go to: www.ironskilletcookoff.org. Come and join us for food, laughter, and a unique live auction as we take this moment in time to give back, and look forward.
