Virtual Top Chefs Event

Uniting To Support The Vital Medical, Dental and Behavioral Health Care Provided By Water Street Health Services To The Most Vulnerable In Our Community.

A fundraising campaign for Water Street Mission


Welcome to Lancaster County's Virtual Top Chef Event!

Thank you for joining us! 

Water Street Mission counts on the Top Chefs fundraising event every Spring to provide about 40% of Water Street Health Services’ operating budget for the year. This predictable funding is needed to provide vital medical, dental and behavioral health services for our guests and at-risk members of our community.

Providing for the healthcare of our guests is key to helping them find restoration and wholeness in all areas of their lives. And, through innovative services like our Nurse Care Management program we are able to increase the quality and efficiency of patient care. This not only serves Water Street guests, it also helps reduce the burden of unnecessary emergency room visits on our Lancaster County community as a whole.

Thanks to a dedicated staff and advice from many we decided it was just too important a need to not move forward with Top Chefs - in a different format.

Although we can't be together in person, we are glad to be able to unite virtually so that we can enjoy a fun and impactful time together.  Please click on the video above to enjoy the following:
