COOKING FOR A CAUSE
Men of Boston Cook for Women's Health 2012 was an immense success! Thank you to all of the wonderful Sponsors, Celebrity Chefs, Restaurants, Host Committee, and guests who came out to support the event.
Men of Boston, as it is affectionately known, 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 was named one of the ten best Food and Wine Events in Boston by BizBash. Last year's event became the most successful in its 15 year history with 4 executive sponsors and a growing lists of attendees.
Save the date for next year's event, and join in with hundreds of others as we celebrate food, cooking and most importantly, innovative women's health programs in Dorchester.
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.
