Tinsel & Tine was invited to sample more great food in Philly at the Ya Gotta Try This Tasting Party to benefit
The event took place at the Independence Visitor Center, (One North Independence Mall) and was chaired by Second Chance Foundation Board of Director Mike Jerrick host of Fox 29′s Good Day Philadelphia. Local readers may be familiar with Mike's weekly "Ya Gotta Try This" segments on Good Day Philadelphia, where he visits local restaurants and eating establishments to try their signature, and sometimes, unusual, dishes. Expanding on this signature theme for a fundraiser was an excellent idea.
The Mission of the Second Chance Foundation is to raise funds to provide financial assistance and resources to vital community-based organizations that serve “at-risk” children, young adults, and families to help them lead more productive lives that promote a safer Philadelphia. The Second Chance Foundation, created in January of 2011, was the brainchild of Philadelphia District Attorney R. Seth Williams. Seth Williams is a true Philadelphia success story. After being given up by an unwed mother, Seth was placed in an orphanage and two foster homes before being adopted by a devoted and loving family. He grew up in a hard-working West Philadelphia neighborhood, the only child of Imelda Williams and the late Rufus O. Williams who emphasized the importance of community service his whole life.

Geisser also said, Jerrick is a very hands on Board President who is high energy and committed to giving back to the community; and that the money raised through Ya Gotta Try This will go a long way in helping the organization meet its goals.
