The Junior Women’s Club of Chevy Chase and the National Center for Children and Families are getting together with Chef Tony’s restaurant for a cookbook fundraiser to benefit a special NCCF program.
A group of teens from NCCF’s Greentree Road boys shelter called the “Bistro BoyZ” regularly gets together with the Junior Women’s Club for cooking lessons and food shopping tips to use when they leave the shelter.
Many come from troubled family backgrounds and will go on to live by themselves. As part of the program, the teens who are leaving the shelter receive a Bistro Boyz Box of assorted kitchen equipment for their new homes.
On Oct. 17, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Chef Tony’s (4926 St. Elmo Ave.) Women’s Club members, chef Tony Marciante and NCCF Executive Director Dr. Sheryl Brissett Chapman will sign copies of the “Pie in the Sky” book, a collection of favorite recipes from Bethesda and Chevy Chase chefs.
Proceeds from the event, which costs $25 a ticket, will go to the Bistro Boyz program and some of the teens will be on hand to help prepare tastings featured in the book.
