Ft. Lauderdale, FL – June 11, 2014 – Kids in Distress hosted “Cooking with KID”, an annual fundraiser for the organization where donors participate and spend a portion of their day with the children in attendance. The event has proven to be a wonderful opportunity to support a great cause while helping teach children how to prepare a meal under the guide of a professional chef. The event also serves to empower the children as the sponsors were able to share their own personal “Recipe for Success.”
Attorney Otto E. Bergés was pleased to be one of the event sponsors. Mr. Bergés had the opportunity to cook alongside one of the children and prepare a 3 course meal they were able to enjoy together with other participants. The benefit for the children was three fold – serving not only as a fundraiser, but also providing the children with hands-on kitchen experience while they shadowing successful members of their community.
The event was held at Hugh’s Catering and several local businesses sponsored the event, making it an enormous success. According to Mr. Bergés: “Being able to give back to the local community through such a tremendously wonderful cause was not only an honor, but it bolstered my sense of community pride. I look forward to being part of this well put together event next year and working more with Kids in Distress.” Otto’s “Recipe for Success” was simple, yet sound advice for the children: “Always be honest and take full advantage of every opportunity you have to better yourself in life.” According to the Kids in Distress website: “KID Signature Events offer a great opportunity for individuals, families, and corporations to come together to make a difference in the lives of the families we serve” and “100% of the proceeds derived from KID Signature Events directly benefit the families we serve.” To find out more about Cooking with KID, upcoming events and how you can help, please visit the Kids in Distress website at: https://www.kidinc.org.
