Supporting the Work of Gemma (formerly The Village)

Chefs for Gemma was previously known as Chefs for Silver Springs and the annual event benefitting Silver Springs – Martin Luther School, as Art Works was for theVillage. Prior to the pandemic, our plan was to hold Art Works this past April and then Chefs in November. Unfortunately, as you know, we had to cancel Art Works.  As we did with many of Gemma’s services for children and families, we shifted Chefs to an online platform and also added a back-up date for (we hope) an in person event.  “A Taste of Chefs”will be held on Friday, November 6th with a brief and inspiring program that will stream online from 7-8 PM via the event website at, and an online auction as well.

Then, on April 9th, we hope to be able to gather in-person for a more traditional event. This date falls closer to when Art Works would normally be held.  A fact sheet about the event is attached if you would like to read more.

The virtual event is coming up in four short weeks! The committee has pulled together an auction with some fun items that you can preview at the event website listed above and below.  Some of you have already signed on as sponsors or bought tickets for the upcoming Chefs event – we are very grateful!  If you are interested in learning more about Chefs and participating by buying a ticket or sponsorship, you can learn more at the event website which, again, is
