St. Ann’s Community held its signature fundraising event, “Food Fight – An Epic Culinary Competition,” on Sept. 13 at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center.
Food Fight featured one of St. Ann’s own executive chefs, along with three local chefs, each competing in a 30-minute cooking challenge to make an entrée from mystery ingredients. The winner of the 2019 competition is Michael Macri, certified executive chef at Genesee Valley Club in Rochester, who was crowned Food Fight Champion for presenting an entrée comprising of lobster, dragon fruit, Fritos chips and horseradish root. Todd Klugh, executive chef of St. Ann’s Community at Chapel Oaks in Irondequoit, was crowned the People’s Choice Award winner for a second year.
Money raised at Food Fight supports Annie’s Angel Fund, which provides quality-of-life activities for St. Ann’s Home residents with limited financial means. The Angel Fund makes possible such things as lunch out with friends, tickets to a baseball game or a trip to the hair salon to enrich the lives of St. Ann’s long-term care residents.
