Men put on their aprons, rolled up their sleeves, and got into the kitchen tonight.
It was the 8th annual 100 men who cook event at the Hulman Center. Over 1 thousand people came out to taste the goods, but unfortunately for us by the time we got there, the ravenous crowd ate everything in sight.
All proceeds for this event go back to the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, and allows the museum to provide scholarships and other needed services to the Community. The sponsors and organizers say, it’s always an event they look forward to.
“It’s a, I hate to say this but it’s like a giant potluck so you come in, and you are really like with your friends and family the people that are part of this community and so, it’s just a lot of fun,” says Executive Director, Lynn Hughes, of the Terre Haute Children’s Museum.
Region CEO for Old National Bank, Dan Doan agrees, “It’s ingrained in our culture to give back to our communities so what better place to do it than something that benefits our children and our communities.”
The auction featured such items as a guitar signed by the band Styx, and a Harley Davidson to name a few.
Figures have not been tallied yet, but their goal was to raise nearly 100 thousand dollars.
Old National Bank, lead sponsor for the event have estimated that the money raised has reached 3 quarters of a million dollars.
