Bratislava, Slovakia, June 2017: The World Chefs Without Borders (WCWB) Ambassador in Slovak Republic, Mister Vojto ARTZ, introduced the mission and activities of WCWB at an event that took place within a Food Festival between June 2 – 4, 2017. The event took place in the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava, on the premises of the Bratislava castle, and commemorated the 300th anniversary of the coronation of Maria-Therese for Hungarian and Czech queen and Austrian archduchess.
Mister Artz organized his own “Vojto Cooking show” at the international level. It created opportunities for noted chefs from Slovakia, Czech Republic and Italy to showcase their skills live to the public. Meals and desserts prepared on stage were auctioned off straight away and this way they were changed into the means to support a good thing – improvement of life conditions of children with cardio-vascular diseases.
A grand total of 700,00 EUR was raised and bestowed in the form of donation to the Children Cardiocentre Foundation.
Present at the event were Mrs. Zuzana Duzekova, the general secretary of the Slovak association of chefs and conditioners, and Mrs. Mária KadleÄÂíková, the custodian of the Children Cardiocentre Foundation.
Congratulations to the efforts of the chefs, who have proven to all that their hearts are in the right place. In this case, it is possible to confirm that food really heals.
