Today is the last day to vote in the Sears Chef Challenge, and Bethesda-based chef Molly Pisula is looking to take the cake. The proceeds from Molly’s win would go to the Capital Area Food Bank, one of the largest food banks in the DC area. Molly already has the support of DC food bloggers including Mary over at Girl Meets Food, and it would be great if she had yours too. Vote over at the Sears Chef Challenge today–voting ends at midnight tonight!
Here is a letter from Molly explaining more about the contest:
I’m a personal chef based in Bethesda–started my business four years ago when my first daughter was born. Now mom of two (Piper, almost 4, and Ruby, 20 months) trying to balance life as a stay-at-home-mom with building a business.
Got the great opportunity to compete in the Sears Chef Challenge–spent a month demoing cool recipes at Sears stores in the area, which were then videotaped and posted online on the Sears website.
A couple of weeks ago, the voting started to determine which chef from D.C. (there are 3 of us) will move on to the next round–the semi-finals at Sears HQ in Chicago. That would be an amazing experience for me of course, but what’s even cooler is that Sears is giving $5,000 to the food charity of the winner’s choice ($20,000 if you win the entire thing). Mine is the Capital Area Food Bank–I’ve been volunteering in their Operation Frontline program for almost a year now and have been so impressed with them. They do so much for the D.C. area, and I would love to be able to support them with a donation.
Voting ends today, and the votes have been going dramatically up and down every day. Any chance to get a shout out on your blog? You can vote once a day per email address here until midnight tonight.
I would love to support the Food Bank with a win!
