COOKING FOR A CAUSE
Our 16th Annual Men of Boston Cook for Women's Health was a tremendous success! Thank you to our first Celebrity Chef Emeritus, Mayor Thomas Menino, Governor Deval Patrick, and the many other Celebrity Chefs, all our fantastic Restaurants, our Executive Chef Sponsor Partners Healthcare along with our many other generous sponsors, our wonderful Board of Directors and health center staff, and most importantly our community for continuing to support our great event and the cause of women's health.
Men of Boston Cook for Women's Health serves to join some of the Boston area's finest restaurants with local celebrities to help raise funds for critical women's health programs. Since its founding in the 90s, Men of Boston has grown in its impact; leading to the event gaining national attention in 2010 as John King, a supportive Dorchester native, filmed his nightly show John King USA live as he served food to guests. In 2011 celebrities like the Patriot's Vince Wilfork and Governor Deval Patrick joined as chefs, and Men of Boston has been named one of the ten best Food and Wine Events in Boston by BizBash in two consecutive years. This past year alumni players from the Boston Celtics, the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots all joined as celebrity chefs alongside mayoral candidates Councilor John Connolly and Representative Marty Walsh.
Since 1995, Men of Boston Cook for Women’s Health has raised crucial funds to combat women’s health disparities in issues such as breast cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and HIV/AIDS for over 20,000 women in Dorchester. One hundred dollars of every ticket that was sold went directly to supporting women’s health programs, such as funding the cost of a mammogram, sponsoring prenatal women’s groups or supporting our innovative healthy weight initiatives for women, including the Fruit & Veggie Rx Program.
