Chefs serve up sweet treats to help Battered Women and Children's Shelter

15th annual Nutcracker Sweets event held at Tobin Center

SAN ANTONIO – People put any holiday diets on hold Monday night to help those who are staying at the Battered Women and Children’s Shelter.

Chefs from across San Antonio participated in the 15th annual event.

Guests also enjoyed performances by Ballet San Antonio and the Children’s Ballet of San Antonio.

“It is also a night to remember those that have to be living in shelters, because somebody is abusing them or being less than kind to them, even though they claim to love them,” Marta Pelaez said.

Money from the event goes toward the shelter and resources to help victims of domestic violence.
