A Fundraiser at Mayflower Brewing Company 
to benefit the South Shore Community Action Council


On Sunday, September 16, 2018  in Plymouth, MA, Mayflower Brewing Company will host the Third Annual America’s Hometown Throwdown Chef Competition to benefit the South Shore Community Action Council’s Food Resources Program which coordinates the collection, storage and distribution of emergency food relief for hungry people of all ages throughout the South Shore. The event kicks off at 11 am at the brewery, located at 12 Resnik Road in the Plymouth Industrial Park. Tickets can be purchased at http://bit.ly/AHTD2018. They are $25 for general admission and $75 for all access.

Mayflower Brewing Company, along with Plymouth Sunrise Rotary, invite the local community to come together for the third year of this amazing event! Eight chefs from local restaurants, from Plymouth and beyond, will be competing in this highly unique and entertaining event. The competing chefs include: Jes Childers {Julians}, Stephen Coe {SWAT Food Truck}, Dan DeLancey {Lobster Trap},  Rob Goldrick {Salt Raw Bar & Fine Cuisine}, Tyler Joubert {Mallebar Brasserie}, Ed Oliveira {Alden Park Bar & Grill}, Victor Vieira {Tavern on the Wharf}, Mike Wisdom {The Tasty}. Rather than defending his two-time title, Chef John Ricardo of Solstice in Kingston has stepped up to the plate and behind the scenes to help Mayflower organize the biggest and best Throwdown yet! Attendees are invited to watch three fast-paced rounds of cooking competitions as the eight chefs are narrowed down to four, then two, then a winner will be announced. Secret ingredients, Mayflower beer, and crowd encouragement make each round an engaging experience. Additionally, the event includes food from each of the eight restaurants and a beer garden. New to the event this year will be a bartender competition hosted by The Pour Guys in between each round of the chef competition.

Jack Cocio, South Shore Community Action Council’s Chief Executive Officer states, “we are incredibly grateful to the Plymouth Sunrise Rotary, Mayflower Brewing, and all of the participating restaurants and chefs for supporting South Shore Community Action Council and our Food Resources Program as the beneficiary of this year’s America’s Hometown Throwdown competition. The event truly embodies the spirit of our Team Up Against Hunger campaign and is a wonderful example of the powerful impact that compassionate community leaders can make in the lives of vulnerable children, families, and seniors.”
