Cookin' Men 2019 was a smashing success due to more than 1,400 guests, an entertaining chef competition, an incredible silent auction and heartwarming laughter that could be heard throughout the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. Through our donor’s generosity, $192,000 was raised to help Francine’s Friends fight the battle against breast cancer! The gifts of healing and comfort our donors provided are making a difference for countless women in our community regardless of their access to insurance or ability to pay. Thank you for making it possible for us to continue the wonderful Cookin' Men tradition of food, fun and philanthropy year after year!

Please join us in 2020 as we celebrate 17 years of Cookin' Men on Saturday, April 18 at the Grand Wayne Convention Center.
