Basil Fest 2017

Chef's Challenge 2017  Everything BASIL!!

Each year we invite local chefs to participate in a challenge to create a recipe for us with a particular Basil theme.  This year we have a wonderful line up of local talant, including Jenny Mattingsley from the Oblate Center; Fratello's Ristorante, the reigning Champs, Elizabeth Johnson from Pharm Table and Suzanne Parker from Powerhouse Bakery. 

​Yum!!  Can't wait to sample their goodies!

Parking is free as are all of the events.  Bring yourselves, your kids, your grand kids and have a great time!!

Most importantly,  our Guest Chefs will be there to help us raise money for the Clarity Child Guidance Center.  Children's mental health issues still carry a stigma.  We need clarity on the issues facing parents and child carers and that is what CCGC provides.  9 in 10 parents reported an improvement in their child after treatment by caring professionals at the Child Guidance Center.  Help us help them eradicate the stigma associated with mental health issues. Lend your support for their continued fine work in our community.



Children's mental health is us help Clarity CGC provide it.
