Divine desserts create tasty fund-raiser

With a backdrop of bountiful blooms, the Chester County Community Foundation is holding its annual Sweet Charity fund-raiser at Waterloo Gardens on Tuesday, showcasing desserts ranging from Candy Sushi with Ginger Creme Anglaise to Chocolate Fleur de Se.

Nineteen Chester County pastry chefs will present their creations at this competition, which will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Waterloo’s Exton store, 200 N. Whitford Rd. The honoree is the late Linda LeBoutillier, Waterloo’s chief executive officer who was known for her generous heart and philanthropy. Affectionately called “Mama Linda,” she died of cancer in October.

Four of last year’s winning chefs will be returning, eager to duplicate their successes. For those without a sweet tooth, the fund-raiser will offer a light supper from Gourmet Buffet by Aquilante and beer from the Victory Brewing Company.

Sweet Charity benefits the Chester County Community Foundation, which assists families and businesses to become involved in long-term charitable giving. It holds over 350 funds in trust and annually awards $2 million in grants and scholarships. Tickets for Sweet Charity begin at $125. For more information,call 610-696-8211 or visit www.chescocf.org.
