Lamar Educational Awards Foundation Seeking Men Who Cook

Dec 12, 2018 | Community Relations

Men Who Cook Russell
Homemade candies from Dan Oliveira, Rick Russell and Ryan Russell aka “The Candy Men,” are always a hit with guests at the annual Men Who Cook event.

The Lamar Educational Awards Foundation is seeking Men Who Cook to participate as “celebrity” chefs in the annual event that puts the fun and food in fundraising.

Sponsored this year by Johnson Development Corp., Men Who Cook provides community members the opportunity to sample culinary delights that the men (or their wives or favorite restaurant) create at home.

“This is a great opportunity to participate in this stirring event and share a favorite dish with the community,” said LEAF Executive Director Janice Knight.

Men Who Cook will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16 at Safari Texas in Richmond, with Ken Mondshine and the Brotherhood Band providing the evening’s musical entertainment.  

LEAF helps fund Lamar CISD teachers’ dreams by providing extra money for classroom enrichment. In 2018, the organization awarded 205 educational grants totaling more than $451,535.

“Come join us as we look forward to another successful presentation of Fort Bend’s finest chefs,” said Knight.

For more information, or to participate call 832-223-0334.
