Will cook for tips: 100 men raising funds Feb. 22 for Children’s Museum


News Release

---- — On Feb. 22, 100 local male celebrities will prepare and share their favorite recipes during the “100 Men Who Cook” event, and they will compete for tips to benefit the Terre Haute Children’s Museum. A limited number of tickets and tables are still available for those who want to see these chefs in action, and even those who can’t attend can support their favorite chefs by putting tips in an online tip jar.

The online tipping site, at thchildrensmuseum.com/100men, is available now through 5 p.m. on Feb. 21. The site also includes a tip form that can be downloaded for those who wish to mail or drop off tips to the museum. All donations to the museum are fully tax-deductible as allowed by tax law.

Over the last five years, 100 Men Who Cook has grown to become one of the most talked-about events in the area, and to date, it has raised more than $500,000 for the Terre Haute Children’s Museum. During the 2014 event, set for 6 p.m., about 900 guests will pack the floor of Hulman Center as 100 local male leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors share their favorite recipes.

Last year’s event raised about $120,000 for the museum, and all funds raised support the museum in its mission to “enrich our children’s lives through the exploration of science and technology.”

These important funds will not only help the museum enhance exhibits and programs, they also will support scholarship programs that provide free and reduced admission and program fees to children, families and school groups that are in need.

The 2014 100 Men Who Cook event is sponsored by Old National Bank, Clabber Girl, Clara Fairbanks Foundation, Thompson Thrift and Vectren.
