On Saturday, March 25, patrons of a tasty fundraiser were treated to a wide variety of delicious food offerings ranging from ribs to jambalaya to Lucy Hayes’ White Wedding Cake to lobster bisque.  The 5th annual Cookin’ Men took place in the Neeley Center and featured dishes created by 23 chefs who gathered to raise money for the Terra College Foundation and ProMedica Memorial Hospital Foundation.  Croghan Colonial Bank served as the presenting sponsor.

Thirty volunteers from Terra State and ProMedica, including hospitality program students Frieda Fought and Emily Michael, served about 150 guests.  In addition to the first-class dining experience, attendees also took part in silent and live auctions.  Up for bid were great items like a party at the Neeley Center, a real southern BBQ and a behind the scenes tour of the Rutherford B. Hayes House and Museum.

Terra State Community College President Dr. Jerome Webster commented, “We are grateful for the opportunity to come together with the hospital and celebrate the partnership between these two anchor institutions in the greater Fremont community.”

Plans are now underway for the 6th annual Cookin’ Men in 2018.  If you want to show off your culinary skills, plan now and contact the Terra State Foundation.
