The Men Who Cook Dinner Dance is a fun annual event that benefits St. Vincent de Paul’s local food bank.
All attendees are asked to bring non-perishable items to donate to the food bank.
We’ve rounded up local men in our community who love to cook. Our lineup includes local celebrities, businessmen, educators, and political leaders showcasing their culinary abilities for this good cause.
The doors open at 6:00pm for this BYOB event. Each attendee will receive a ticket to vote for their favorite dish. The chef who receives the most tickets wins 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 presented Pentony Capital Management and other fundraising games sponsored by the Law Offices of Dillon McCandless King Coulter & Graham, as well as fundraising games with all proceeds benefiting the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank.
