Menasha, Wis. - On Saturday, Nov. 7, local professional and community chefs joined University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley faculty and staff, elected officials and friends of the campus for E.A.T.S.

At the event, more than 50 chefs showed off their culinary skills, and five “Community Celebrity Chefs” competed for the title of Top Chef, which ultimately went to Beth Davis, Community First Credit Union and John Davis, Body by Davis. Additional “Celebrity Chefs” Cindy Budiac, Affinity Health System; Houdini’s Escape Gastropub; Kim Baehman, Nutritional Healing; Jay Bush, Bush Brothers and Company; Steve Seifert, Silton Seifert Carlson, SC; and Martin & Kris Rudd, UWFox.

“Each year the UW-Fox Valley Foundation relies on the proceeds from E.A.T.S. to provide the funding for the Foundation sponsored scholarships that are awarded in the spring,” said Martin Rudd, campus dean and executive director at UWFox. “Fortunately, because of the success of E.A.T.S., we’ll be able to award additional and larger scholarships next year to deserving students enrolled at UWFox. We are grateful to our E.A.T.S. guests who lend our students a helping hand. The support means more to these students than you can imagine.”
