Cooking for a cause

Chefs Boy R We! supports programs in community

ANDERSON – Madison County men will be in the kitchen next month, and they’ll be cooking up a storm.

The guys will show off their culinary talents at the first-ever Chefs Boy R We! fundraising event sponsored by the Community Hospital Anderson Foundation. The taste-tempting party takes place Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Anderson Country Club, but they’re signing up their celebrity chefs right now.

“We’ve had a good response,” said Keith Trent, vice president and chief foundation officer. “We fully expect to have at least 60 chefs…. Some of the guys are very good cooks.”

Men who are at home in the kitchen can sign up to be celebrity chefs. Others who want to be part of the event, but are not quite as gifted when it comes to cooking, can receive assistance from another person in preparing their contribution. The chefs choose from categories including appetizers, soups or salads, side dish, main dish or dessert.

Each chef receives a special apron and chef’s hat, and they’ll be wearing them during the “Parade of Chefs” that will launch the evening’s festivities. Expect food, music, dancing and auction items during the gala evening. Attendees will vote for their favorite chef, and awards will be given based on who raises the most money through “tips” collected in jars.

“It sounds like a blast,” said Brian Frazier, of Frazier’s Dairy Maid. He’s already signed up to be a chef. “It’s a worthy cause.”

The funds raised through the event will support two of the foundation’s programs. The Support Our Students (SOS) initiative helps to meet the clothing, nutrition and medication needs of public school students in Madison County, administered by school nurses. The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program will also benefit from the fundraiser.
