NEW ORLEANS (press release) – One of the Northshore’s most popular culinary events, Men Who Cook partners local “celebrity cooks” – leaders in St. Tammany or Washington Parishes – with top local restaurants to fight child abuse and trafficking. This year’s fundraiser will feature a gala event in Covington on Nov. 7, where 15+ local celebrity/restaurant teams (TBA) will compete to see who can craft the best dish, and who can raise the most money for Hope House. The event also includes complimentary wine and beer, the opportunity to win extraordinary prizes, and entertainment by Tyler Kinchen & The Right Pieces. The gala will be preceded by a full month of dine-in promotions at top local restaurants across the Northshore (details TBA).

WHY: All proceeds from Men Who Cook provide hope, healing and justice for victims of child abuse on the Northshore. Hope House is the only local agency that provides essential services like forensic interviews, and free advocacy and counseling to child abuse victims in St. Tammany and Washington Parishes – a need that is steadily growing with each passing year. In 2021, Hope House is projected to serve more than 350 child abuse victims.
HOW: Patrons can purchase their tickets to the Men Who Cook gala at www.cachopehouse.org/events ($70 per person or $125 per couple). Details regarding this year’s celebrity/restaurant teams, and the month-long restaurant dine-in promotions, will be announced in the coming weeks.
To maximize the impact of this year’s Men Who Cook donations, the In Jesus’ Name Foundation has announced that it will match all donations up to $50K. However, $50K must first be raised by Hope House in order for the organization to qualify for the matching contribution.
