Thank you for being a part of the solution at
the 26th Annual Great Chefs’ Dinner!
The Annual Great Chefs’ Dinner is one of Maryland’s finest culinary events, and The Family Tree’s largest fundraiser. Our 26th annual event on May 3, 2017 was one of our most memorable – featuring captivating stories of parent participants, a compelling video we debuted about Adverse Childhood Experiences, and a passionate crowd working together to make a difference. Thanks to our over 90 sponsors, our dynamic committee, auction donors, and over 400 guests, we raised $800,000 to prevent child abuse and neglect in Maryland! With these funds, The Family Tree can expand our efforts to create changes in families that will have a positive impact for generations to come.
Raising Families Up
The Family Tree leads Maryland in preventing child abuse, connects caring communities, and builds strong families to improve society for generations. Through family-focused education and outreach services, we serve more than 19,000 parents and children in need of support each year.
Thank You to Our 2017 Great Chefs!
