Palmetto Place Children and Youth Services will soon present the Sweet and Savory Chefs' Competition Monday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 701 Whaley. In true 2021 fashion, the event will be held both virtually and in person.

Chefs from a variety of Midlands restaurants will participate in the event and the crowd will be entertained by live music from the Finesse Band.

The in-person version will feature an open wine and beer bar, photo booth and virtual silent auction. Guests will vote on their favorite sweet and savory dish from each of the participating chefs.

Those who attend the event virtually will receive email confirmation and online access to the virtual auction. They will also receive designated times to pick up their baskets, which will include a sampler from the chefs, a bottle of wine, a QR code for the event and a link to view the live band.

All donations from the Sweet and Savory Competition will be in direct support of Palmetto Place's programs for residents. According to the organization's Facebook page, reserved tables are sold out, but $60 tickets can still be purchased for in-person or virtual attendance.
