Sussex Habitat thanks community for support

March 17, 2023

To our Sussex County neighbors, thank you. It was an enormous show of support for Sussex County Habitat for Humanity at the Look Who’s Cooking Sussex County Challenge event March 9 at St. Jude the Apostle Parish Hall. More than 20 volunteer Realtor chefs prepared and served up dozens of tasty dishes. Competing for the best appetizer, entrée and dessert, our generous chefs served more than 200 guests a wide variety of tasty treats and competed for the best dish in class. The event is made possible through the generous efforts of our volunteer chefs and sponsors.

On behalf of Sussex County Habitat for Humanity, I want to thank all our supporters and guests, including St. Jude’s parish, Knights of Columbus, Baird Mandalas Brockstedt, Sussex County Association of Realtors, Keller Williams Foundation, Schell Brothers, WDRE/WBOC, Whitecap Mortgage, Next Home Tomorrow Realty, Comcast Business, State Farm Insurance and Tidemark FCU. Together, these sponsors and our guests made the night fun and a great success, raising nearly $20,000 to support Habitat’s mission of housing for all. That’s enough money to put the roof on one new home. Please join me in thanking and supporting all our volunteer chefs and congratulate the top chefs for the evening. 

Our winners include:

Appetizer: First place - Audrey Serios, Keller Williams, butternut squash soup; second place - Margaret Poisson, C21 Gold Key, honey garlic meatballs; third place - Chris Beagle, Compass Realtors, pulled pork mac ‘n’ cheese bombs.

Entrée: First place - Adam Linder, Northrop Realtors, Asian short ribs; second place - Kacie Pinnock, Lori Martin Group, salsa verde chicken; third place - Allison Foshhee, The Real McCoy Group, manicotti.

Dessert: First place - Cheryl Crowe, Jack Lingo Realtor, lemon lavender cupcakes; second place - Paul Sicari, Compass Realtors, Mexican chocolate tart; third place - Pierre Saez, EXP Coastal, tiramisu.
