Men Who Cook

Join Summa Health System and greater Akron’s top amateur male chefs for a delicious culinary competition and savory night of fundraising at the 14th annual Men Who Cook event.

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. Top amateur male chefs compete for titles, including the “People’s Choice Award,” which are determined by votes among attendees and a panel of women judges who taste the delectable creations throughout the fun event.

Summa at HomeMen 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.

This year’s theme is “The Art of Cooking,” and chefs will match their food choices to the theme. The Akron Art Museum will graciously have its art exhibits and gift shop open for our guests. The evening also includes a live auction, DJ and cash bar.

Donations are either $60 per person, which includes one ballot for the People’s Choice Award, or $150 per patron, which includes the donation, two ballots for the People’s Choice Award and patron name listing.
