Men Who Cook Event

Men Who Cook

Men Who Cook is a fundraiser that directly benefits an area that provides care or services to the patients and communities served by Summa Health System.

Chefs compete for titles such as “People’s Choice Award,” which are determined by votes among attendees and judges.

This year, the 13th annual Men Who Cook will be held April 26 at St. Joseph’s Family Center, 610 W. Exchange St., Akron and will benefit Summa Screens, a program that provides funds for cancer screenings and education to give opportunity for expansion of screening services for uninsured and underinsured patients. This year’s theme is “Hooray for Hollywood,” and the chefs will match their food choices to the theme.

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

Summa Screens

“I would like to express my gratitude for being able to participate in this program. My routine mammogram indicated that I needed to have a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound. I have no insurance coverage. I am a 15 year cancer survivor. The diagnostic mammogram, provided by Summa Screens, ruled out breast cancer! I can't tell you what peace of mind this gave me!”
