PHILADELPHIA, PA. — Acclaimed chef Chris Scarduzio’s Table 31 Restaurant in Philadelphia, in a partnership with Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City chefs and The Star Group, hosted a special “Savor for Sandy” cooking event to raise money for Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City employees affected by Hurricane Sandy. The event took place Sunday evening, Dec. 16, and all of the proceeds went directly to the Wish Upon a Hero Foundation.
“I jumped at the opportunity to give back to the community and to help those who are in dire need by offering to host Savor for Sandy,” said Scarduzio. “I know people from Philly and South Jersey will rally around this cause and bring their appetite to support their coastal neighbors, all while enjoying a wonderful night of great food and company.”
In the days leading up to the Savor for Sandy event, Wish Upon a Hero collected specific “wishes” from Caesars employees that consist of items they need replaced most. Then, proceeds from Savor for Sandy will be used to make approved wishes come true by giving families up to $1,000 per household to help them recover from the devastation.
Wish Upon a Hero is the world’s largest social helping network. The peer-to-peer platform connects people in need with people willing to help. Wishes range from basic needs to medical and financial needs. Heroes can help by donating money, offering a service, or purchasing a specific item. Since its launch in 2007, more than 97,000 wishes have been granted.
