HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) — Blue Ridge CASA for Children is hosting its third “Top Chef Harrisonburg” event, featuring the Executive Chefs from your favorite local Harrisonburg restaurants.

The friendly competition among some of the best chefs in Harrisonburg will be on Saturday, June 19 at Bluestone Vineyard in Bridgewater.

Votes will be tallied by attendees and a judges’ panel.

Each Chef will be making one dish and they will have total culinary control over what they create. These are unique dishes you won’t find on their menus! In addition to the “Top Chef” title, the winning Chef will also receive a top of the line Chef’s knife.

The Chefs from local eateries Local Chop & Grill House, Joshua Wilton House, Cuban Burger, The Golden Pony, Massanutten Resort and Montpelier Bar and Restaurant at Hotel Madison will be vying for the title of Top Chef.

Tom French of the Joshua Wilton House won the coveted Top Chef title in 2019. The event was canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proceeds and sponsorship fees will go directly toward Blue Ridge CASA. According to the event’s website, Blue Ridge CASA trains community volunteers to advocate for the hundreds of local children who are currently in the court system for abuse and/or neglect. This money is 100% allocated to them so that they have a significantly increased chance of experiencing a better future.

Since 2018, Top Chef Harrisonburg has raised $40,000 for Blue Ridge CASA.

WHSV-TV is the media sponsor of the event. WHSV news anchor Kyle Rogers and Chief Meteorologist Aubrey Urbanowicz will serve as masters of ceremonies.

In addition to the Chef’s dishes, the evening will feature Bluestone Vineyard wine, music and door prizes.
