Olde Pink House Offers Cooking Class in Support of Savannah’s Youth Emergency Shelter

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Olde Pink House and Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter, Inc. announces plans for the next cooking class on Saturday, October 3 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The culinary course is conducted at Park Place Outreach, located at 514 E. Henry St., followed by dinner at The Olde Pink House at 6 p.m.

The program was the brainchild of Pink House General Manager, Craig Jeffress, after meeting with two residents of Park Place Outreach who worked in restaurants. Jeffress took a tour of the shelter and was impressed by what he had observed. He decided he wanted to do more for the organization than the traditional gift certificates for auction items. This fun, instructional program of hands-on involvement, superb cuisine and financial support for the non-profit is a winning combination for all.

Park Place Outreach provides the only youth shelter in Savannah and Chatham County, and has helped helped over 6600 kids. All services are free for those in need and include meals, clothing, counseling, transportation to and from school, with the ultimate goal of reunification for families.

The cost to participate in the cooking class is $125 per person, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit Park Place Outreach. Space for the class is limited. For more information and to reserve a seat, call the shelter at 234-4048.

Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter, located at 514 E. Henry St., provides support for troubled children and teens in Savannah and the surrounding area.
