Susan Mizen: Horizons invites all to contest

To the editor:

Horizons would like to extend an invitation to the entire Moffat County community to attend our second annual Pick a Dish cooking contest from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday.

The contest pairs adults with developmental disabilities who receive services through Horizons with chefs from local restaurants. Each pair will cook and serve a specialty dish for sampling. The dish will represent the culmination of a process through which Horizons chefs learn how to prepare food and work in a professional kitchen environment.

The cooking contest is not only a fundraiser for Horizons Moffat County Adult Services, but also an opportunity to provide adults in our program with vocational skills and social networks in preparation for real-life employment.

Last year’s inaugural event was warmly received and featured tasty dishes, live music and friendly faces. Thank you to the community for embracing us in our mission to increase independence and expand opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

For the many local businesses who have chosen to sponsor this event and, of course, the eight amazing restaurants who make it possible — Brother’s Custom Processing, Carrelli’s Pizzeria and Pasta, Castle Ranch Steakhouse, Cool Water Grille, Double Barrel Steakhouse, Gino’s Neighborhood Pizzeria and Grill, K.S. Kreations and Vallarta’s — we feel so fortunate.

We hope to see old friends and make new ones at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion. Tickets are $15 (kids younger than 12 are free) and are available at Horizons, the chamber and at the door. People’s Choice winners will be determined by dollar votes, so bring your bills and vote for your favorite dish! Music by John Allen and cash bar for beer, wine and Moffat Moonshine (our specialty drink).

Bon appétit!

Executive Director,
