The Men Who Cook Dinner Dance is a fun event that benefits St. Vincent de Paul’s local food bank. All attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable item to donate.

We’ve rounded up local men in our community who love to cook. Our lineup includes community leaders and businessmen who will showcase their culinary abilities for this good cause.

The BYOB event begins at 6:00pm with all of our men offering samples of their “specialties.” Each attendee will receive a ticket to vote for their favorite dish. The winner will receive the The Golden Fork Award and official induction into the MWC Hall of Fame.

After the sampling and voting, stick around and enjoy an evening of music and dancing with DJ Pat Gallagher. There will also be a basket raffle with proceeds benefiting the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank.

Just a few of the baskets in our raffle

Tickets for the event are available at the Butler Radio Network studios at 252 Pillow Street and online HERE.
