Help for our Chefs


    Tuesday, September 22, 2020
    5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

We are all anxious to get through the social-distancing, self-quarantining, upside-down world that we have found ourselves in. And, there is no doubt that we will come out the other side of this – maybe with some scars – but hopefully with a deep appreciation of our relationships and the community we live in.
There are a lot of people quoting Fred Rogers recently as we try to make sense of the world we are living in:
“Always look for the helpers. There will always be helpers. Because if you look for the helpers, you’ll know there is hope.”  
We absolutely salute and support doctors, nurses, firefighters, and all the others on the front lines of treating and caring for the sick. However, for FED, the helpers have always been our chefs. Every year they give us their very best at Dining Away Duchenne, and we cannot thank them enough. This year, today, those helpers need our help. So I’m asking that everyone who can, please, please order take out, buy a gift card, or in whatever way you can show support for the amazing chefs who have shown us support over the years. To make it easier, here is a list of all the chefs who have shown us the love:
