Ted E. Bear Hollow Presents 10th Annual Comfort Food Classic

In the U.S., approximately 1 in 7 children experience the death of a parent or sibling before age 20.  Our community is all too familiar with such tragedies. Consequently, grieving students grow up with unanswered questions and unresolved issues and are at increased risk for depression, anxiety, behavioral disorders and poor school performance that may follow them into adulthood and negatively impact our communities.  Ted E. Bear Hollow (www.tedebearhollow.org) is proud to serve these kids, their families and other grieving adults through free support groups, day camps, and overnight retreats.

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of a foodie event with heart, Ted E. Bear Hollow’s Comfort Food Classic will be held on Sunday, October 9th at the Ramada Convention Center, located at 72nd & Grover. Six past winners will return to recreate their winning cuisine and compete for the title “Best of the Best”.  The food is not to be missed, and neither is the returning host, always-entertaining local comedian Kris Covi. Guests will get to sample and judge the creations from six of the area’s top chefs.  Judging categories include presentation, creativity, and taste.  Guests will also enjoy free beer, wine, appetizers, and desserts and may participate in a silent auction via electronic bidding. All proceeds will support the agency’s free services provided in Omaha, Council Bluffs and the surrounding communities.

Tickets: $90; Tables of 10 are available. Find additional event information about Ted E. Bear Hollow online at www.tedebearhollow.org.
