For twelve years the beloved event, Iron Chef Goes Coastal (ICGC), has helped financially aid local nonprofits and has become a staple of Clatsop County fall festivities. The ICGC committee had been meeting since May of 2021, altering, adapting and attempting to reinvent the event in consideration of COVID related health and safety concerns.
Unpredictable COVID numbers, overflowing local hospitals and other obstacles have led United Way of Clatsop County and the Iron Chef Goes Coastal committee to cancel 2021’s Iron Chef Goes Coastal event.
It is with heavy hearts we communicate this decision, as we were excited to be together, showcase the talents of local chefs and most importantly, raise money for underprivileged Clatsop County children, families and seniors, for whom every day is a struggle.
We thank everyone who supported this event, local restaurants and our community, and look forward to dining with you at future Iron Chef Goes Coastal events.
Until then, we hope to hear from you at this year’s Radiothon & Silent Auction scheduled for November 9-11. Details coming soon!
