Chef Donates $2516 From Annual Charity Event

December 31, 2016

The third annual Chiko’s Smokey Rub Christmas Charity event took place last Friday, with the event successfully feeding over 700 people while also raising $2,516 to assist a woman battling cancer.

“It was a chilly but overall great evening,” Chef Chiko said. “There was great entertainment including a choir, Rated E dance group, and Powergirl Trina with her caroling crew.”

Following the event, Chef Chiko donated $2516 to Ms. Shanda Scott who is currently fighting cancer. Upon receiving the donation, Ms Scott said “Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

“You never know how expensive getting sick is until you get sick. Every little bit helps. To see such a young couple with such big hearts it warms my heart. Thank you”.

In response, Chef Chiko told her, “We are happy to help you along this journey in a small way. We want you to keep that happy smile on your face and to keep fighting”.
