Tri-County Community Resources is hosting its Second Annual “Taste of the Nature Coast” gourmet tasting event on Tuesday, October 9 to benefit the Tri-County Community Resource Center (TCCRC).

The evening will feature chefs from Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy Counties providing tastes of their best dishes while competing for patrons’ votes. Some of the featured chefs and restaurants include: Barbeque Bill’s, Bell’s Catering, BubbaQue’s, Cherry’s Seafood, Chef Ashley Pendarvis from It’s a Shear Thing Salon, Chef Jesse Williams from Cross City Rehab, Duncan’s on the Gulf and The Filling Fork. Guests can also take part in raffles for prizes and enjoy live music from local artists Sarah & Korey.

“The Tri-County Community Resource Center provides needed services to residents in the tri-county area,” said Norinda Yancey, Vice-Chair of the Tri-County Community Resources Board of Directors. “Center staff and volunteers work hard to connect our patrons with resources that they need to get them back on their feet and thriving. This benefit ensures not only that our overhead costs are covered, but that we can bring new ideas and programs to the Resource Center.”

The Tri-County Community Resource Center opened in Chiefland as Partnership for Strong Families’ fourth Resource Center, and first outside of Gainesville. Partnership for Strong Families’ Resource Centers provide needed services to families with the goal of strengthening families to prevent child abuse and neglect. The Tri-County Community Resource Center provides many services to tri-county residents, including emergency food and clothing assistance, CPR classes and an emergency diaper bank.

“Since opening in 2015, the Tri-County Community Resource Center has continued to evolve to meet the needs of the surrounding community,” said Stephen Pennypacker, CEO and President of Partnership for Strong Families. “We are grateful for the ongoing support of Tri-County Community Resources to ensure the Resource Center’s continued success.”

The event takes place from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Haven Community Center in Chiefland. Tickets are $20 in advance. A limited amount of tickets will be available at the door for $25, payable by cash or check.

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations throughout the year are a huge help to the children we serve. We accept donations by check, which can be mailed to our office or through the Philanthropy Hub link here.
