Men Who COOK

*Note* I forgot to mention the date for this event – November 12 – from 6-9

Richard is participating as a celebrity chef at a fundraiser in November for Park Avenue Youth and Family Services.

The mission of Park Avenue Youth & Family Services is to empower the residents of the Central neighborhood of South Minneapolis to eliminate dis-parities in health & quality of life stemming from racism & poverty. 

This fundraiser is going to support the educational programs of Park Avenue Youth and Family Services (Incl. Village Tutors, Homework Help, and Tronix Team)

75% of 8th graders at our local schools cannot pass the basic reading standards test, 99% cannot pass the MCI III math standards test. PAYFS wants to be part of the solution with our tutoring and hands-on science education programs.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.  You will be able to taste dishes from several community member “chefs.”

Men Who COOK is being held at the Green Central MultiPurpose Room at 324 E. 35th St. Minneapolis.
