Barbara J. Buchanan, Chairperson of the 2010 CDD Chef's Do Dinner, is pleased to announce the "Chef's Do Dinner" will be held on March 23, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., at the Best Western Inn at Hunt's Landing, and with only three hundred reservations available, seats will go fast.  Buchanan stated, "I am honored to chair this event and look forward to the community's continued support of the children with developmental disabilities in our community."

Every year, the Center for Developmental Disabilities (CDD) hosts "Chef's Do Dinner", a delicious dining event featuring samples from the area's most beloved restaurants. With endless plate-filling opportunities and delicious desserts to top it off, the event is always remembered fondly and awaited anxiously by those who attend.

Silver Palate Sponsorship Packages are available for purchase and include tickets to the Chef's Do Dinner on March 23rd, as well as separate tickets to the Silver Palate Sponsorship Event, which will be held on Sunday, March 21, 2010 at The Fork at Twin Lakes from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.  Program advertising opportunities are also available for sponsorship of the Back Cover, Inside Covers, Full, Half and Quarter Pages.

With previous participating restaurants including The Fork at Twin Lakes, The Muir House, The Waterwheel Café, and Hotel Fauchere, "Chef's Do Dinner" always offers diners a variety of scrumptious samples from some of the area's finest chefs. Guests are welcome to fill their plate as many times as possible, and, if there is something they particularly like, may speak to the chef himself about his culinary masterpiece at his restaurant's station.

Aside from offering a variety of culinary delights, "Chef's Do Dinner" honors a person or company every year with the "Children's Champion Award".  This year's recipient is Ed Nikles, Sr., President and CEO of Ed Nikles Custom Builder, Inc.  Ann Gillerlane, Executive Director of the CDD stated, "The CDD is pleased to honor Mr. Nikles for his ardent compassion and dedication, and for advocating continuous educational and therapeutic programs on behalf of the children with developmental disabilities and delays living in our community."

For over forty years, the Center for Developmental Disabilities has provided the Tri-State Area with educational, therapeutic, and family support services for children with developmental delays and disabilities, from birth to kindergarten age. As the only service of its kind in all of the Tri-State Area, many families depend on the CDD for their expert facilities, teachers, and family counseling to help them and their child progress. Proceeds from "Chef's Do Dinner" help the CDD to provide these services to families, so that their children might grow and laugh in ways that might have otherwise been impossible.

Tickets for this event sell out quickly, so early reservations are advised. Reservations must be confirmed by March 15th or seats will not be held. Tickets are $85 per person. For more information, please contact Diane J. Chudoba, Vice President of Development at 570-296-3992 ext. 64 or e-mail
