Cookin’ Men Event Serves Up Breast Cancer Awareness

September 10, 2018


Evangelical Community Hospital is celebrating National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Cookin’ Men, an event where local celebrity men come together to turn up the heat on breast cancer awareness by creating culinary delights for people to enjoy while raising funds to support The Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health.

Weis Markets is the grand sponsor of this year’s event. 

Being held Thursday, October 18, 2018, from 6-8 pm in the event space of Rusty Rail Brewing Company in Mifflinburg, Pa., tickets are $40 each. Join the Valley’s cookin’ men as they don aprons to create dishes ranging from appetizers, to entrees, to desserts. Tickets can be purchased starting September 24, 2018 at 10 am by calling 570-522-4850 or by visiting www.evanhospital.com/cookinmen. Tickets are limited and may not be available at the door the night of the event.

The event includes a fan favorite contest. Prior to the event, community members can vote for their favorite chef by making a donation in his name. The chef who raises the most money will receive the honorary title of “Top Chef” at the event. Favorite chef votes can be made in any amount– just visit www.evanhospital.com/cookinmen and click on the Donate Money page and choose the name of your favorite chef. All of the fan favorite funds and ticket proceeds will go to support healthcare navigation and the survivorship program for breast cancer patients and their families at The Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health. The top chef contest ends at 5 pm on October 17, 2018.

In addition to the pre-event contest, attendees will get to vote for their favorite dish by sampling all of the options and casting their vote. An award will also be given to the chef who receives the most votes for representing the most pink enthusiasm at the event. The winners will be announced at the end of the evening.

The Center for Breast Health, located at 210 JPM Road, Lewisburg, has a dedicated team of specialists who provide comprehensive screenings, diagnosis, and treatment for women. The Center includes a navigation program for patients to aid in understanding their path of care and making sure they are following the path for the most optimal outcome. After diagnosis the Center offers survivors support through clinics, programs, and one-on-one attention with professionals trained to understand the psychological, physical, emotional, and social effects of a cancer diagnosis.

October is a special month of breast cancer focus—a time of collaboration when national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies come together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services. Most importantly, the month reminds women to take control of their health by scheduling a yearly mammogram starting at the age of 40 to increase the chances of early detection of breast cancers.
