Central Pennsylvania SuperChef is a competition featuring the best fine-dining restaurants in central Pennsylvania. Select businesses are judged by a panel of celebrity judges as well as attendees on several categories including: presentation, creativity, taste and overall best by a panel of celebrity judges, as well as guests of the event.

Through the indefatigable talents and efforts of Events by Eye Candy's driving force, Abeer Srouji, and sister, Tania Srouji, Central Pennsylvania SuperChef has experienced double-digit growth since its inaugural event in 2011, and is anticipating over 500 attendees at this year’s competition which benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a fundraising competition in communities across the U.S. in which nominated candidates vie for the title of Man or Woman of the Year.

They raise funds for blood cancer research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, aptly titled, the Boy & Girl of the Year. Titles are awarded to the man & woman in each community who raise the most funds during the eight-week campaign.
