Real men not only take care of their children and provide for their families. Real Men also cook. And very well, I might add.
You will see just how well these men can throw down in the kitchen and on the grill during the 25th Real Men Cook for Charity on Sunday at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.
Every year, throngs of ATL-liens pour into the venue to celebrate strong Black men on Fathers Day with a fun-filled day featuring over 100 dishes to taste, prizes, games, chef demonstrations, and a Health Pavilion.
Punctuating the affair will be a silent auction to win a Bahamas hotel stay and an original autographed Super Soaker donated by the creator Dr. Lonnie Johnson along with an original print by International Olympics Artist Steve Allen.
Among the cuisine connoisseurs will be: Chef Idris Muhammad, Executive Chef, Neiman Marcus Café at Lenox Square Mall; Guest hosts include Rick
Joyner, The Rick Joyner Experience and Bobby Jones Gospel; Mikaya Milan Thurmond, WTVC Reporter/anchor, Deidre Dukes, Weekend Anchor, Fox 5 TV .
This year the charity event will benefit the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals Summer Youth ACE Academy, Principles of Manhood After School Program at Sylvan Middle School and Real Men Charities, Inc.
Honorary Chairs include DeKalb School Supt. Michael Thurmond, Atlanta City Councilman Andre Dickens, Fulton County Commissioner John Eaves and R & B Musician and Singer Ellis Hall.
