Annual Chef Soiree Takes Place This Weekend

The annual Chef Soiree to benefit the Youth Service Bureau of Washington and St. Tammany parishes is scheduled for Sunday, March 18, at the Covington Trailhead. With more than 60 food and beverage vendors and five bands, Chef Soiree draws more than 3,000 patrons each spring. Proceeds from the Northshore’s premiere event help the Youth Service Bureau provide advocacy, counseling, education and intervention for at-risk youth and families in the area. “With proven success rates, the Youth Service Bureau provides the resources needed to help at-risk youth reach their full potential,” said Leah Brown. “ We are proud to support YSB’s mission, as well this fun and festive event which has served as a staple in the Northshore community for 34 years.” “We are continually working to help children and families reach their full potential, leading safe, sober and joyful lives,” said Mary Slazer, President & CEO, Youth Service Bureau. “With the help of our partners and the outpouring of support from members of our community surrounding Chef Soiree, we are able to expand our services year after year.” The entertainment lineup for the 2018 event includes Bayou Liberty Jazz Band, Groovy 7, Louisiana Spice, New Suit and The Wagners.
