The fourth annual Community Chefs will be held on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 at the Anderson Country Club at 6 p.m. The event features 60 men from the community, each offering a unique dish for attendees to sample. There will be a variety of items including different appetizers, entrees and desserts. Tickets cost $65 apiece.


Community Chefs has raised over $151,000 for the Community Hospital Anderson Foundation over the past three years. The event has benefited multiple causes. This year the proceeds will benefit the following causes:

School nurses' funds

Several years ago, the Community Hospital Anderson Foundation initiated a discretionary nurses' fund for each public school in Madison County. With these funds, nurses at each school are able to purchase items for the medical needs of the students whose families might not be able to afford it, such as new glasses, an inhaler or even something as simple as clean underwear and socks.

Oncology patients

Community Hospital Anderson provides state-of-the-art cancer treatment to our patients here in Madison County. However, our commitment to our patients extends beyond their medical care. A cancer diagnosis can be devastating to a patient and family. The Community Hospital Anderson Foundation has established a fund that can be used to help care for some of these families' extra needs that may arise as a result of the cancer diagnosis. This can mean anything from purchasing a wig for a patient to paying the patient's utility bills when he/she has been unable to work.

Community Bikes

Community Bikes provides bikes for the Christian Center, Dove Harbor and Exodus House. The goal for the program is to overcome the transportation challenges that residents of these programs have faced. Using a bike is an affordable mode of transportation, allowing participants easier access to employment and healthcare.


Community Chefs has opportunities for businesses and organizations to sponsor the event.
