VIDEO HERE: More than 300 turn out for Cookin’ Men
SELINSGROVE – More than 300 people packed the Susquehanna Valley Country Club Thursday evening for Evangelical Community Hospital’s Cookin’ Men fundraiser.
Heather Snyder is Development Coordinator at Evangelical Community Hospital and explains the 3rd annual event raises money for the Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health. “Breast cancer doesn’t just effect the woman who has it, it affects everyone in her life and even in men’s lives.”
More than 20 male celebrity chefs participated in the event by cooking various dishes for the public to sample. Chef Todd Keeley brought his cooking class from Penn College of Technology to serve up desserts. “They are doing a great job tonight and the students were very excited to participate. It is good experience for them to get out beyond school and see what it is like the help in the community.”
Those in attendance were able to vote for their favorite chef by texting a $10.00 donation. The event is just one of many that is part of Paint the Valley Pink with Sunbury Broadcasting Corporation to raise awareness of breast cancer during the month of October. (Ali Stevens)
