Men Who Cook

Every year, men from across the Purchase Area who are committed to making a difference come together in support of our mission by sharing their culinary talent.  The idea for the event started as recognition that for true social change, men must be a part of the solution and over the years the event has successfully grown and sparked change across the region.

More than 400 guests attend this exciting event where you can try a variety of culinary creations, bid in our impact-auction, be entertained by our live DJ, and connect to the community.    

This is our largest annual awareness and fundraising event and provides exciting opportunities for the community to engage in our mission. This year’s title sponsor is Mercy Health . We will announce the date of the 2020 event soon!
