    Name: QCAP's Best Chef 2017
    Date: October 5, 2017
    Time: 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Quincy Community Action Programs, Inc. (QCAP) invites guests to cook up some fun at its Sixth Annual Best Chef fundraising event at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 6 at Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy. The competition features some of the area’s most celebrated chefs in a battle of culinary skills. Susan Wornick will serve as master of ceremonies. 
    The challenge: In a race against the clock, the chefs must use a basket of secret ingredients commonly provided by QCAP’s Southwest Community Food Center – the organization’s food pantry. Using only a convection oven and a handful of portable burners, they must take these basic ingredients and create a gourmet dish. Past ingredients have included corn flakes, canned green beans, and peanut butter.
    One lucky guest will have the opportunity to bid and win a spot at the judges’ table, helping to sample the dishes and select this year’s Best Chef.
    As always, all guests can sample dishes from the chefs’ restaurants as part of the “People’s Choice” competition.
    The night will also feature raffles and live and silent auctions.
    Tickets are $100 per person and $175 per couple. Event proceeds will benefit QCAP programs, which serves more than 22,000 unduplicated people annually in Quincy, Weymouth, Braintree, Milton, Hull, and more than 80 surrounding Norfolk County, South Shore, and Metro Boston communities. For more than 50 years, QCAP has been the leading, non-profit organization in the Greater Quincy area dedicated to reducing poverty and helping low-income families achieve economic security.
    In addition to the Southwest Community Food Center, services include adult education and workforce development, financial education, including money management and credit repair counseling, job coaching and placement, Head Start and Early Head Start, access to quality and affordable early education and care, family engagement activities, heating assistance and weatherization, homebuyer education, mortgage foreclosure counseling, affordable housing, homelessness prevention, and housing services.
