Chefs for Gemma to Be Held in November 2021!

We are pleased to announce that the the 14th annual Chefs for Gemma benefit will be held on Friday, November 5, 2021! Chefs for Gemma is the signature event benefitting Gemma Services and its programs that make hope shine for at-risk youth and families. Chefs 2021 will be a hybrid event with in-person and virtual options.

Chefs 2021 will highlight Philadelphia’s Chef Chad Williams of the acclaimed Friday Saturday Sunday. The restaurant is consistently atop Philadelphia Magazine’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Philadelphia Magazine has also named Chef Williams “Best Chef ” and Eater has named him “Rising Star.” The in-person event on Friday, November 5th will be at Green Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill including a cocktail reception, four-course seated meal designed and introduced by Chef Williams, an engaging program about the youth and families we serve, silent and live auctions with fantastic items, honoree recognitions, and Chef Williams’ delicious culinary creations. The program will be streamed and auction items available for bidding online for those at home.

Chefs 2021 will recognize the leadership and dedication of Bill Andrews and Paul Bergsteinsson, former Board chairs of our two legacy organizations, which merged to form Gemma Services – Silver Springs – Martin Luther School and theVillage. At Chefs 2021, we will also honor Morgan Lewis LLP for the firm’s pro bono support and guidance of theVillage over many years up to and through our 2019 merger.
