Organizers of Chefs For Shelterhouse say they were pleased with the turnout for the Midland organization that’s supported victims of
domestic violence and sexual assault since 1976. The organization’s work is done primarily through counselors and therapists plus advocates who help with issues like housing.

Executive Director  Jeanine  Ouderkirk  says the chefs event is Shelterhouse’s biggest yearly fundraiser.

Nearly two dozen chefs  from restaurants throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region prepared  their signature dishes and served them to a capacity crowd at Midland’s Great Hall Thursday.
