Hello, my name is Carolina and I recently competed in Chopped with the goal of winning $10,000 to invest in my community. I tried my very best to represent the South Bronx and my Indigenous roots during the cooking competition but I was chopped on the entree round.
However, I am more determined than ever to serve my community. I started this fundraiser because I would like to host a spring festival this year full of freebies and interactive activities at Brook Park for the children of the South Bronx.
Most family events usually take place in the wealthier parts of the city and I strongly believe the families of the  South Bronx deserve the same opportunities as everyone else.  We want our neighbors to have fun without being pushed out of their own community. Thank you in advance for every dollar donated and for sharing my fundraiser page.

You clearly expressed that you have a true desire to help your community on the Chopped episode that you appeared in recently. It was really heartwarming to see how much you care about the neighborhood you live and work in, and how much you already contribute to it. After seeing how much you genuinely love it, I felt compelled to help you realize your goal, even though you didn't win Chopped. You have a beautiful spirit, I hope all your dreams come true! Best Wishes!
