Competing in different competition classes including individual competitions, team competitions, “mystery basket” competitions and more, those who competed were the sole representatives of the senior living industry, and all went home with a medal.

“I’m very proud of my team,” said Kevin Penn, Director of Culinary for Independence Village and StoryPoint. “It takes a tremendous amount of courage to put your skills as a chef out there to be judged against your peers.”
