Our Cause

Originally a part of the 1889 Foundation, the Chef Auction has a rich 10+ year history of helping those in need throughout our area. Now, the 1889 Foundation has ceremoniously passed the Chef Auction to the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Foundation in hopes of carrying on its legacy. With your generous support, this year’s Chef Auction will go to helping future generations find success in our region through the Supporting Scholars Fund (Presidential, Emerging Leader, and Destination Graduation scholarships) and other culinary scholarships.
