Alzheimer’s Association holds Apprentice Cook-Off fundraisier

Some of the finest dining around Rochester is served up in our area’s senior living communities – and on Wednesday night, their chefs competed for a good cause.
The Alzheimer’s Association of Rochester held an Apprentice Cook-Off Gala at Locust Hill Country Club. Chefs from 11 senior living communities paired up with culinary students from FLCC to compete for top chef award. Guests were invited to sample all their dishes, and a panel of celebrity judges voted on the winner. This event raises money for the local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
“Alzheimer’s disease is the leading public health crisis in the country we’re facing today,” says Stewart Putnam, Board Chair of the National Alzheimer’s Association. “Raising awareness and funds to support our efforts to combat the disease are a very important part of what we’re trying to do this evening.” The Alzheimer’s Association advocates for tens of thousands of people in and around Rochester who have Alzheimer’s and other dementia. It also supports caregivers and helps fund research.
