Sample 60 Celebrity Chefs' culinary treats!

Lakeland, FL -- More than 60 celebrity chefs are warming up their ovens and sharpening their knives for the 3rd Annual Cookin' Men fundraiser. 


The chefs, who are business and civic community leaders, will cook up an array of culinary treats, all to benefit the Lakeland Regional Medical Center Foundation's Women in Philanthropy Giving Society.


"We are so excited to host our 3rd Annual Cookin' Men event!  The response over the last two years was so incredible that we had to add even more chefs this year," said Paula Higgins, manager of annual giving and special projects for the LRMC Foundation.


"This should be another great event for our community and we are looking forward to seeing what our chefs cook up."


The evening will start at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 5 at the Lakeland Center.


The purpose of Women in Philanthropy is to inspire and empower women to fulfill their philanthropic potential by improving the quality of health care for women of all ages in the community.


"In just two years, WIP has granted more than $183,000 in funding to improve healthcare for women and children in Lakeland and Polk County," Higgins said.


Admission to Cookin' Men is $50/person and includes food samples from each chef and two drink tickets.
