Feeling philanthropic, we decided to enter a cooking competition.


Summa Health System’s 11th annual Men Who Cook Fundraiser is Friday and we hope with our dish, and the other 51 contestants and entrees, raise a ton of money for Palliative Care (supportive/pain) and Hospice Services (Cancer).

Men Who Cook this Friday

Total of 52 different dishes? I almost guarantee you’d be too full to sample everyone’s entrees. Or…prove me wrong and eat 52 courses.

It’s a Vegas theme so dress like you’re so money baby!

Double down....

Shhhhhh! We’re planning to bribe the top female judges. #sexytime Heh heh heh.

I better start prepping for the estimated 300…Man, this is similar to a Top Chef challenge huh?

Plus you’ll get a chance to meet all the crews from @QuarryLaneFarms

(QLF’s secret word for this competition in “Humuhumunukunukuapua’a”)

Rumor has it, Pete Kenworthy(petekenworthy) from WEWS-5 has got a mean white chicken chili. I can’t wait to try it.


Who knows, maybe we’ll arm wrestle him too.

So come on out and support a great cause!
