Culinary Arts Program Announcement- Congratulations Rick!!!!

By Tabitha Golt, in Uncategorized

The Careers through Culinary Arts Program or C-Cap was started in 1990 and provides cooking competitions for scholarships, job training and internships, teacher support, college advising, lifetime career guidance, and product donations to classrooms. They work with over 150 public high schools, 220 teachers, and 17,000 students annually. Today, C-CAP operates in seven locations across the country. New York City remains the headquarters while the other programs are Arizona (statewide); Chicago; Hampton Roads, Virginia; and the Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. Regions.

Founders of the program volunteered their time and experience to start this program in Arizona back in 1991. Chef mentors Rick Sederholt (our very own Director of Food & Beverage), Christopher Gross, and Michael DeMaria with direction of the local Directors Beth Van Bieber and Barbara Colleary started training high school teachers and lecturing high school students to compete for scholarships awarded by C-CAP. The Chef Mentors went in to schools that adopted the program converting their existing Home Economics program into a professional development scholarship program for their students. Chef Sederholt became the lead mentor and coordinated all of the competitions every year.

Rick Sederholt, along with three other industry professionals, founded the Arizona chapter.  He was very recently awarded the Founders Award by C-Cap.  This award was presented by C-CAP President, Richard Grausman and Local Coordinator, Jill Smith in appreciation for the years of dedication and the vision to helping young culinarians see their dreams come true.

Congratulations Rick!

WELCOME TO FALL!!!

 

img_5103While Summer may be winding down, for those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to experience The Peninsula at this time of year.. enjoy! The leaves are about to start changing, the days will get shorter, and mornings will grow chillier as the warmth of summer fades away. Although we will miss long summer days and warm nights, we have a brand new, exciting season approaching! We should all continue to enjoy “Our Community” as much as we can at this time of year.

Clothing our Kids- Upcoming Events

“Improving the lives of at-risk Pre-K thru elementary school children by providing them with essential school clothing.”
Third Annual Charity Golf Outing
The Peninsula Golf & Country Club
Monday October 10, 2016
12:30pm Shotgun
Thank you Ocean Atlantic & Schell Brothers for being our Platinum Sponsors


clothing-our-kidsAs a reminder to all residents of The Peninsula, this outing is the primary source for the financial support that “The Kids” need.
We’re expecting over 100 golfers from within The Peninsula and friends and supporters living off property. We expect participants to start arriving at 11:00am for the 12:30pm start. Golf will be followed by dinner poolside at 5:30pm which also includes a Silent Auction and Super Raffle. All proceeds from the day’s events go directly to Clothing Our Kids. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience non-participating Club Members may experience on October 10.
As most of you know, many Sussex County families do not have adequate resources to meet all of their financial needs. The goal of Clothing Our Kids is to provide immediate help with school clothing. The endeavor impacts self-esteem, the probability of better school attendance and higher levels of achievement. Ultimately, these kids stay on the path to become productive community
members.
 Tuesday, October 18th
Arena’s Long Neck-During Dinner hours
10% of all sales for dinner will go directly to Clothing our Kids

Interested in Volunteering for WinterFEST?

 14480546_533526800179579_5163933487744704141_o“Winter WonderFEST in Lewes is up and running!” says Peter Briccotto.  “And we welcome everyone in the Community to be among the first to inaugurate and participate in this fantastic holiday event.” Winter WonderFEST begins on November 18th and ends January 1st.
Briccotto, the producer of Winter WonderFEST, is referring to the just-announced “Light Spectacular”, which will illuminate a 2.5 mile car tour of Cape Henlopen State Park. The event kicks off with “Dashing thru the Show”, a 5-K Fun Run and 2-mile walk through the illuminated park on Nov.18.  The “Light Spectacular” show will continue through the holiday season.   Then, on Nov. 25, Briccotto and non-profit Festival of Cheer, Inc. will host a community grand opening of the “Christmas Village” Winter Carnival at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal.  “One of our goals is to give Sussex County families and visitors the opportunity to create lasting holiday memories for their families,” notes Briccotto.  “Yes, there will be a full scale ferris wheel among the carnival rides!”
I know many of our Peninsula homeowners that would love to volunteer! Sign-Ups are now OPEN to volunteer during each night of Winter Wonderfest. It’s SUPER EASY! Go to our SIGN UP and register today! They are in need route guides, cashiers, greeters, and more! Sign up for as many evenings as you would like. Are you more interested in helping them set-up or break down the event? Add that to your message.
