The Cherish Receiving Center Food Fight Fundraiser supporting at-risk children in Monterey County will be held on Saturday, October 26 from 1:30 – 5 pm at the Monterey Tides Hotel. Guests will enjoy an afternoon filled with two entertaining culinary competitions and delectable food and beverages, all to support local children and youth in need. Cherish Center is the first stop to safety for at-risk youth ranging from infant to 17 years when they have been removed from their homes for abuse or neglect. Cherish staff help to bridge the gap between the youth and their next home by handling the trauma that youth experience when brought to the center. This benefit is a joint fundraising effort on behalf of Aspiranet and its partners in Monterey County.
