Four more chefs are needed to help with a scholarship fundraiser in honor of the late Chef Mark Noseda .
Noseda passed away August 16, a day before the soft opening of Freighters in Port Huron. Noseda was an executive chef for Meritage Hospitality Group, which includes Twisted Rooster in My Town Ada/Cascade and Crooked Goose in My Town Walker. He was 35 years old.
A scholarship fund in Noseda’s name is being established to support culinary students attending Grand Rapids Community College’s Secchia Institute for Culinary Education. A fundraiser brunch will take place September 22, from noon to 3 p.m. at Amore Trattoria Italiana Restaurant, located at 5080 Alpine Ave. NW in Comstock Park. The brunch and auction will be hosted by local chefs Jenna Arcidiacono, Randy Finch and Tommy FitzGerald. Additional chefs are needed; if you would like to help, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
