I'm always a sucker for a good cause, but in this case, Cooking for a Cause happens to be supporting two organizations I think especially highly of. A couple years back I spent some time working as a consultant for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and was impressed by the compassionate and hard working people I met there. They are truly doing a remarkable job caring for the region's children. And a friend who lost his own mother now works with Kate's Club, which helps grieving children and families deal with the loss of a loved on. Two very worthy causes worth supporting!
ABOUT THE EVENT
Atlanta’s STAR 94 (94.1 FM) and Ford Lincoln Mercury are teaming up for “Cooking for a Cause,” a charitable event benefiting two local Atlanta charities, Kate's Club and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta on Thursday, October 28, 2010 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Foundry at Puritan Mill. The fundraiser will showcase cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs Richard Blais, Linton Hopkins and Henry Chandler (winner of Nightline's "The People's Platelist" contest) as well as food tastings and a silent auction.
