American Cancer Society

Who is the American Cancer Society?

Founded over 100 years ago, the American Cancer Society is known for its nationwide, free programs and services for people with cancer and their families. Their mission is to help those with cancer understand their disease, manage all the ups and downs of treatment and recovery, and be emotionally supportive during the entire journey. The ACS has several programs in place to fulfill this mission:

  • The National Cancer Information Center provides 24/7/365 hotline and live chat to provide accurate, timely information about services and resources in the patients’ communities.
  • Patient Lodging Programs provides hotel stays when patients are away from home for treatment.
  • Road to Recovery provides rides to cancer patients who need assistance getting to and from treatment.
  • Reach to Recovery is designed for breast cancer patients to be matched with a mentor who has “been there” to talk about ways to cope with breast cancer.
  • TLC catalog and website provides breast cancer support with products such as wigs, hairpieces breast forms, and mastectomy swimwear.
  • Look Good Feel Better allows volunteer cosmetologists to teach women (also men and teenagers) to deal with appearance-related side effects of cancer, including skin and hair issues.
  • Patient Navigator Program connects a patient with a patient navigator to talk one-on-one about a patient’s situation.American Cancer society money.The American Cancer Society

How does the American Cancer Society raise money?

The ACS has many fundraisers all over the country all year long. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are three to five miles of friendly walking with entertainment afterward. Another popular fundraiser is Relay for Life. Relay for Life events have a few things in common: team participation, emphasis on survivors & caregivers as well as decorated paper bag luminarias, glowing with candles, each representing a life. The Coaches vs Cancer fundraiser and educational programs is driven by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. Volunteers for the ACS also plan many galas, balls and parties to fundraise for this worthy cause. The largest single-day fundraiser is the Cattle Baron’s Ball.

The Cattle Baron’s Ball Event in Dallas

This year marks the 45th annual Cattle Barron’s Ball.

“The American Cancer Society does so much good for those with and affected by cancer,” John Gilbert, President and Owner of G Texas Catering said, “Their volunteers inspire us as they work tirelessly to raise funds for this worthy cause to give back every chance that we can.”

G Texas Catering’s Newest Philanthropic Adventure

G Texas Catering is joining forces with the WakWay Foundation to combat food insecurity among children in the Dallas area. Food insecurity is more than just being hungry. It is the lack of consistent access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Many people in Dallas and its surrounding communities do not know where their next meal is coming from. It is estimated that 1 in every 4 children in Texas (almost 1.9 million) are food insecure. In North Texas alone, 300,000 children can’t count on having enough food at mealtimes.

G Texas Catering has recognized this heartbreaking reality for many of our neighbors in Dallas and has begun fighting the battle against food insecurity by repurposing extra food from the hundreds of events we cater every year. We will box up surplus food for WakWay to take to inner cities and shelters in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Through this partnership, G Texas Catering will be able to donate over 1,000 pounds of food each year!

WakWay

What is WakWay?

The WakWay Foundation was created by Don “Wak” Wakamatsu, a former professional major league player, scout, manager and current coach at the Texas Rangers. As a professional athlete, Wak had a strong desire to find a way to help people, especially children, stay healthy. He provides easy to make, healthy meals and snacks to children in the Dallas area.  

The WakWay Foundation also founded The Produce Stand project. This idea came to fruition when Wak noticed a crop of cherries at his family farm wasn’t being picked because it was cost prohibitive. He realized that this abandoned crop and many more like it could be used to feed people who are struggling with food insecurity. He immediately began devising a transportation system to get abandoned crops to shelters and other volunteer organizations in the Dallas area.

However, he found that getting the food from donor to the children and families in need is the biggest detriment to feeding the hungry. According to the WakWay Foundation, the problem with getting food to those who need it most is not the lack of food – it’s the complication of logistics that keep this food away from those who need it. It is estimated that over 72 billion pounds of perfectly good food, worth $218 billion, goes to waste each year. This food waste fills up to 21% of our landfills. Also, 20 billion pounds of fruits and vegetables are discarded on farms or abandoned in fields and plowed under. WakWay Foundation’s streamlined transportation system allows food to go from the donation site to a table within hours, providing large quantities of healthy food to numerous people.

“As one of the largest event caterers in the Dallas area, I feel it is our responsibility to make our operation as sustainable and waste-free as possible,” said John Gilbert, President and Owner of G Texas Catering. “G Texas is proud to partner with this great organization allowing us to do what we love most, feed more people.”

Recipe Building for Custom Catering

Butternut Squash Recipe Building for Custom Catering

Recipe Building for Custom Catering

The G Texas Catering culinary team specializes in creating custom menus and fulfilling special requests for clients. What happens when the client requests a dish or variation of a dish that isn’t in our extensive recipe book? Executive Chef Micheal Gooch writes one.

Unlike most restaurants, catered events feature a wide variety of menus and cooking styles. Many events call for regional flavors such as Southwestern, Tex-Mex, Creole or Barbecue while others include global cuisine from Asian flavors to Mediterranean and traditional Italian offerings.

It takes years and years of practice with culinary techniques, flavor profiles and learning the science behind the art to have the ability to create a proper recipe from scratch.

Custom Catering

To build a menu for a client requesting a specific theme, Chef Gooch researches culinary techniques, ingredients and traditions practiced in that culture. Combining research and his extensive culinary training, he not only replicates the dish but makes it his own. However, research and technique aren’t the only things that the Chef needs to consider when creating a recipe. In a restaurant environment, a meal is prepared and served immediately. At a catered event, we are often required to serve the meal several hours after preparation. Therefore, when a custom recipe is developed the chef must also consider:

* The event location

* The number of guests at the event

* Facilities available at the venue

* Demographics of the guests attending the event

* The style of service (seated dinner, buffet, chef-attended stations, tray passed, etc.)

All of these factors and many more will determine the types of food used, how it will be presented, how much food will be sent and how it will be transported to the event site. The Chef may be happy with the flavor profile and presentation of a meal at our corporate kitchen, but he must consider that the product temperature has to be maintained throughout delivery to the event venue and service to our guests.

If the venue has kitchen or preparation facilities the Culinary team will often deliver the components or “mise en place” to the venue and complete the preparation on site to ensure the meal is fresh and flavorful. Seasonings, garnishes and sauces are all carefully planned in the final plate presentation of the entree, Hors d’ Oeuvres or Dessert to be served.

Creating New Upscale, Modern Menus

The G Texas Catering culinary team doesn’t only create new menus at the request of our clients; creation is always at the forefront of Chef Gooch’s mind. The most sought-after event designers require menus and bar services that reflect their creativity and style. It’s important to anticipate and be able to create what people want. This ensures that G Texas Catering always has the most modern, upscale menu choices in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The event industry is constantly changing to adapt to the latest trends and popular event themes. Due to these ever-changing trends, our culinary team is constantly designing new recipes to guarantee the execution of a delectable, personalized menu that your guests will remember.

Stu Selleck fell in love with cooking watching his father in the kitchen as a child. Since then, He knew he wanted to attend culinary school and become a chef.

“Chef Stu has been an incredible asset to our team, creating great menus and managing kitchen operations as a Venue Chef, Event Chef and Sous Chef for more than 4 years,” said John Gilbert, President of G Texas Catering, “He cares so much about our organization and takes complete ownership in every event and restaurant operation that he is a part of.”

He joined the G Texas Catering team in October of 2014 working as a chef in our corporate kitchen. After showing immense culinary and management skills, he was asked to head G Texas’s café operation at The Potter’s House.

Chef Stu Stu Selleck fell in love with cooking watching his father in the kitchen as a child. Since then, He knew he wanted to attend culinary school and become a chef.

Stu continually shows his dedication to G Texas Catering and his work as a chef; which is why John knew he was the right person to assist with the development and opening of G Texas’s new restaurant concept in the Dallas Arts District, The Artisan Craft Kitchen and Terrace Bar.

Stu said the best part about being a member of the G Texas Catering family is just that; it is a family. Even though being a Sous Chef is a physically and mentally taxing career, its worth it to him to see the finished product leave the kitchen for the customer to enjoy!

Stu is loving life at the Artisan, especially when he can cook (and taste) Italian food – his favorite! He credits much of G Texas Catering success to its great leadership. We are proud to have Stu as a leader within our organization and an integral part of our successes.
