On Tuesday, October 4, a few of this city’s talented amateur male chefs will be matched together with some of our finest restaurants. These amateur chefs are known as movers and shakers in our community – people who have contributed their time and energy to bettering this city. Now these men will be coming together at Statler City to cook alongside a number of the city’s most celebrated professionals. The funds raised at the event will go toward helping to create awareness and boost resources for Crisis Services.
