On Aug. 16, 2018, Life Care Center of Punta Gorda, Florida, participated in the Charlotte County Senior Living Top Chef competition held at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center in Punta Gorda.


Twelve local skilled nursing and assisted living facilities participated in the event, which raised money for the local Senior Friendship Center. Categories included Hot Appetizers, Cold Appetizers and Dessert.


Sheila Fioretti, executive chef, and Frank Quinones, dietary manager, entered a trio of selections in the Hot Appetizer category – lamb chop lollipops, mini crab cakes with avocado mayo and pork stuffed mushrooms. They brought home the second-place award for the category!


“I am extremely proud of our team’s commitment and dedication to making our residents top priority and being part of this wonderful community,” said Julia Swanson, executive director at Life Care Center of Punta Gorda. “We will definitely be participating again next year!”
