Lamar Educational Awards Foundation Hosting Annual Men Who Cook Fundraiser

(LAMAR CISD) – The annual Lamar Educational Awards Foundation Men Who Cook fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Feb. 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at Texas Safari Ranch, 11627 FM 1464 in Richmond. 

This year’s gala is presented by First Financial and PBK, and will feature a friendly food competition, live music, and silent auction. LEAF welcomes all community members, foundation supporters, and residents to the event.

The fundraiser features men in the community, or “Celebrity Chefs,” who will prepare an appetizer, side dish, entrée or dessert and offer bite-sized samples to more than 800 attendees in a friendly and spirited competition. Attendees serve as competition judges and prizes are awarded for the dish with the highest number of votes. Grand prizes are awarded for the tastiest dish with the highest number of votes.  

There is no fee to participate as a Celebrity Chef, however, all chefs are responsible for providing their own ingredients. Interested participants are welcome to reserve their spot on this year’s culinary event team by completing the registration form HERE.  

A vital part of Men Who Cook is securing quality items for the auction. LEAF welcomes themed curated gift baskets and donations such as sports memorabilia, vacation timeshares, sports tickets, hunting/fishing packages, gift cards and memorable experiences. To donate an item for this worthy cause, complete the form HERE by Wednesday, Jan. 31.
