Men Who Cook                                                                     Register or Donate Online Now

Join Summa Health System and greater Akron’s top amateur male chefs for a delicious culinary competition and a savory night of fundraising at the annual Men Who Cook event.

Men Who Cook is an annual fundraiser that directly benefits an area that provides care or services to the patients and communities served by Summa Health System. Top amateur male chefs compete for titles such as “People’s Choice Award,” which are determined by votes among attendees and judges who taste the delicious chef creations throughout the fun event.

This year, the 14th annual Men Who Cook will be held April 24 at The Akron Art Museum, 1 South High Street, Akron, and will benefit Summa at Home™, a homecare, palliative care and hospice program that gives adult patients of all ages the opportunity to recover from an illness or injury in an environment where they are most comfortable – at home. Our team of healthcare professionals provides medical services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For 2015, the theme is “The Art of Cooking” and the chefs will match their food choices to the theme. The Akron Art Museum will graciously have the art exhibits and gift shop open for our guests. The evening also includes a live auction, raffles, entertainment and cash bar.

Tickets are $60 per person, which includes admission, one raffle ticket, one ballot for People’s Choice Award and access to chef recipes; and $150 per patron, which includes admission, one raffle ticket, two ballots for People’s Choice Award, access to chef recipes and patron name listing.

For more information about Men Who Cook, Summa at Home, tickets to the event or making a donation, please contact Summa at Home at (888) 587-9927 or

We would like to thank our title sponsor, Saber Healthcare for their generous support. (insert logo)
