If you weren’t able to join us live, please watch the Cook-off to see who earned the Top Chef Honor!
The results are in, and the ERS ‘A Taste For Giving Gala’ was a sweet success on many levels! To date, we have raised more than $275,000 for the Good Samaritan Mission (GSM) Fund. Executive Director of Philanthropy Joy Blang hosted the live broadcast from the Bromwell’s showroom in downtown Cincinnati. President and CEO Laura R.P. Lamb, VP of Affordable Living Dr. James “Jimmy” Wilson, and The Very Reverend Owen C. Thompson, Dean of Christ Church Cathedral, joined Joy to share highlights, challenges, insights, and our vision for the future for ERS and our partnerships with the community. More than 400 guests joined the virtual live broadcast on Friday, October 8, 2021, to witness the premiere of the Great Gala Cook-off featuring an All-Star ERS Cast—ERS Board Member and COO of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation Dora Anim, ERS Board Member, and Retired Canon to the Ordinary, The Rev. Jack F. Koepke, III, and Laura Lamb. Hosts Director of Talent Acquisition Alicia Lee, and Executive Director of Hospitality Emerson Stambaugh, engaged with Celebrity Judge and Founder of La Soupe Suzy De Young and the chef contestants as they vied for top chef honors. Their challenge was to create a dish that incorporates ingredients inspired by the older adults served through the GSM.
