Chef Raises Money for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Chef JP Murcia represented HHS and his facility in Wilson, North Carolina by taking part in an event to raise money for a foundation supporting cystic fibrosis. With 400 attendees at the gala, Chef JP joined forces with other area chefs to provide a memorable dining experience. JP prepared the final course, a dessert of local grits panna cotta with sweet tea dulce de leche, macerated local blueberries, and almond popcorn praline. The event raised over $350,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Chef JP said of the experience, “I’ve taken part in this event for the past two years, and helping the community is deep in my heart. The money we raised will help hundreds of people. And the dessert we served was the talk of the evening!”
