Summer Camp Chefs

Summer Camp Chefs

Schooool’s out for summer! - meaning our Chefs are off for the summer too! So what do they do?! College Chefs employees can use the summer as a time to relax and rejuvenate, or they have the option to  take on an exciting opportunity for a couple of months.  We love when our chefs choose to stay busy during the summer - they learn new skills, have new experiences, and stay up-to-date on their culinary chops, which all benefit their position as a chef with College Chefs. We created the website, Summer Camp Chefs (SCC), so that our Chefs have an additional avenue to find summer gigs should they choose to do so.

College Chefs' Sponsors IlliniThon: the Miracle Network Dance Marathon at the University of Illinois

College Chefs' Sponsors IlliniThon: the Miracle Network Dance Marathon at the University of Illinois

 

Recently, College Chefs sponsored the IlliniThon Dance Marathon benefiting St. John's Children's Hospital of Springfield, Illinois. Over 700 students came out to participate raising a grand total of $310,586.17.  The event is part of the Miracle Network Dance Marathon which has raised over $150 million dollars since 1991.  

 

According to College Chefs' GM of Business Operations Dave Tarrant, "We are extremely proud to sponsor this event and quite frankly blown away by the hustle and effort the students put in.  I was even more impressed with the results as they blew away their total from last year which was also a huge number."

 

Tarrant continues, "Myself included, there are several Illinois graduates at College Chefs and needless to say we're super proud of our fellow Fighting Illini.  But even outside of Champaign-Urbana, we get to sponsor hundreds of philanthropies with our chapters that we serve around the country and to see the love and effort that these young people put into their causes is so refreshing.  I think that it says a lot about the young men & women that we serve and how serious they are about giving back."
