MEN WHO COOK is a favorite of all ages and provides critical financial support for the Will County Children's Advocacy Center -- providing hope, healing, and justice for abused children.
With over 1,100 attendees last year, MEN WHO COOK is widely recognized as the largest and most popular, single-day fundraising event in Will County!
This fun and casual cook-off competition features over 50 local men – leaders in business, construction, accounting/finance, law enforcement, healthcare, manufacturing, real estate, government, education, and media – serving samples of their favorite dish for public judging.
