I recently received the following information from AAFA Michigan:

The Chefs of the Future competition is fast approaching!   This is a unique culinary competition being held in Wixom on Oct. 30 that promises to be entertaining as well as educational.  

The Food Allergy Community should be interested in supporting this historic event and we need your help!   Please, we encourage you to attend and show your support for AAFA and improving food allergy conditions in our community!  

I've attached the event flyer and press release for information.  We have several local celebrity judges and Sherry Margolis from Fox 2 News as our hostess – should be a fun evening…   Hurry!  Limited number of tickets available (order by phone or online.)  See you there!

Michigan children with food allergy and/or eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGID) may enter our COFAF Kids 1st Annual Poster and Writing Contest between now and April 30, 2008 when all entries are due.  Based upon age, they may enter into three categories:  Poster, Essay and Poetry.  The winners will be announced during Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW) which falls between May 11 and 17 this year.  The prizes (books, DVDs and other fun food allergy related items) awarded in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each age category are funded by a support group grant awarded by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network.  We hope you'll get involved.
