FOOD FIGHT 2020
FOOD FIGHT 2020 took place October 16 at the Genesee Valley Club and on TV and computer screens across the country. Held virtually for the first time, St. Ann’s signature fundraiser featured four local chefs competing in a 30-minute challenge to create an entrée from mystery ingredients.
Chef Taylor Wilde, Sous Chef at Good Luck, took home this year’s trophy by creating a winning dish of curry-rubbed pork chops with apple and spiced couscous. As things heated up in the kitchen, audience members (including residents of St. Ann’s Community) joined the fun from their homes. Some held virtual dinner parties via Zoom as they watched the action.
The event raised over $213,000 for St. Ann’s Community! Thanks to everyone who joined us and to all our sponsors. Photos and a recording of the event will be posted shortly.
Mark your calendars for FOOD FIGHT 2021 taking place on September 24!

Thank you to our Event Sponsors and Community Partners for their continued support and commitment.
FOOD FIGHT 2019 was Phenomenal!
The Culinary Competition was enjoyed by over 450 guests at the Convention Center AND by the residents of Chapel Oaks and Cherry Ridge who watched the event unfold live onscreen.
Executive Chef, Michael Macri at Genesee Valley Club was crowned FOOD FIGHT Champion. Executive Chef, Todd Klugh at Chapel Oaks won the hearts of the crowd to take home the People’s Choice Award for the second year.
The BIG winners were St. Ann’s seniors; almost $250,000 was raised, making this the most successful fundraising event in the history of St. Ann’s Community.
Thank you to all those involved. We couldn’t have done it without you.
