The Men Who Cook Dinner Dance is a fun event that benefits St. Vincent de Paul’s local food bank. In the past year, the food bank has helped 13,700 people. All attendees are asked to bring non-perishable items to donate to the food bank. While all items are appreciated, they are especially in need of pasta at this time.

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 chef who receives the most tickets will  receive the The Golden Fork Award and official induction into the MWC Hall of Fame. At each tasting station there will also be a “tip” jar. The chef who earns the most tips throughout the evening will win our Money Talks award. All tip money will be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank.

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

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

The Butler Radio staff is gearing up for Men Who Cook and collecting donations for the St. Vincent dePaul Food Bank.
