LEAF’s “Men Who Cook” treats more than 700 patrons

Long Elementary teachers Laura Varga and Averil Gleason, Long principal Jill Nehls, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls, and Long teachers Janis Knuckols and Tammy Haring.

While Mexican Lasagna, Caribbean Jerk Chicken and Shrimp ‘n Grits doesn’t exactly sound like a winning combination, those were just a few of dishes enjoyed by more than 700 people supporting the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation at this year’s Men Who Cook.

“The evening was so much fun, cooks are already signing up for next year’s event and the Ken Mondshine and Brotherhood Band has already been reserved again,” said Judi Vernon, L.E.A.F. Board President. “We’ve never had so many stay and dance the night away!”

SiEnviro has committed to be the presenting sponsor again next year. “It is truly our pleasure to sponsor L.E.A.F.” said Managing Director Jeff Haley. “All the donors should be thanking L.E.A.F., Lamar CISD and all the teachers for what they do for our students and community. LCISD’s hard work makes us all proud and promotes the future success of our community.”

In addition to fabulous food, fabulous items were up for bid in live and silent auctions.

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! will be May 3.
