Record crowd supports L.E.A.F. at Men Who Cook

George Junior High teacher and coach Kiah Johnson and his wife, Technology Department secretary Barbara, George Ranch High School Counselor Latrice Patton and her husband, head Lamar Consolidated football coach, Ron.

While Tequilla Pollo del Arroz, Caribbean Jerk Chicken and Potato Cheese Soup doesn’t exactly sound like a winning combination, those were just a few of dishes enjoyed by more than 650 people supporting the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation at this year’s Men Who Cook, presented by Andy Sanford and Diana Alexander of RBC Wealth Management.

“The evening was so much fun that men are already signing up to cook for next year’s event,” said Judi Vernon, L.E.A.F. Board President. In addition to fabulous food, fabulous items were up for bid in live and silent auctions, and item is still taking bidders.

There are still spots open for a Fish Fry with Neil (Banfield) and the Boys. Tickets are $100 for the May 12 event, held at the Party Barn of Rosenberg Mayor Vincent Morales. The evening includes all the catfish and fixings you can eat.

Jeff and Melisa Roberts, Troy and Kristie Roberts, L.E.A.F. Executive Director Janice Knight, Sugar Land Skeeters Vice President of Business Development Chris Hill, Will and Rachel Leaman. The Roberts and Leamans won prize packages from the Skeeters that include a suite for a game and the honor of throwing out the first pitch.

Money raised from the evening goes toward supporting innovative ideas and classroom projects proposed by Lamar CISD teachers that would otherwise go unfunded. L.E.A.F. also offers scholarships to graduating Lamar CISD seniors and to paraprofessionals working on their teaching certificates.

L.E.A.F.’s next event, Surf’s Up, School’s Out!, presented by OakBend Medical Center, will be May 4.“We invite everyone to join us for one of the most fun events in the county,” Vernon added.
