Chef Eddie Matney, of Eddie’s House, is prepared to show the Valley’s most charitable residents how to put their money where there mouth is.
Every year, local nonprofit Camp Soaring Eagle’s Annual Affair raises money for its year-round safe camp programs for seriously ill children and their families. It’s free for them to camp, and one of the ways Camp Soaring Eagle accomplishes that is with this catered black-tie event.
“Camp Soaring Eagle is dedicated to providing the healing power of laughter to thousands of seriously ill children by giving them the opportunity to attend specialized, medically safe camps. The organization offers a variety of programs to Arizona families and children ages 6 to 15 with chronic and life threatening illnesses including: Illness Specific Camping Weekends, Illness Specific Family Retreats, Sibling Camper Weekends and Veteran’s Children Camper Weekends. Camp Soaring Eagle aims to restore resilience, independence and joy to seriously ill kids and their families,” says a spokeswoman for the organization.
We asked Matney if he would contribute one of his recipes off the menu that night to Scottsdale Living’s The Dish — and he forked over the delicious deets on his braised beef short ribs! (More info about the event below the recipe).
