2019 Cookin' Men a Smashing Success!

Cookin' Men 2019 was a smashing success due to more than 1,400 guests, an entertaining chef competition, an incredible silent auction, generous sponsors, and heartwarming laughter that could be heard throughout the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. The 16th Annual Parkview Foundation Cookin’ Men, presented by Fifth Third Bank, continues to raise much-needed funds in support of women’s health in our community. 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.

These gifts will help ensure that Francine’s Friends will continue to provide mammograms and proper follow-up services women need such as early detection, prevention, screening and management plans to fight breast cancer. Thank you to everyone who made it possible for us to continue the wonderful Cookin’ Men tradition of food, fun and philanthropy and supporting Francine's Friends through this event this year. Your generosity heals!

Mark your calendar and save the date - please join us in 2020 as we celebrate 17 years of Cookin’ Men on Saturday, April 18 at the Grand Wayne Convention Center. Click here to learn more.
