Find out in February at the Lamar Educational Award Foundation’s (L.E.A.F.) annual Men Who Cook, presented this year by SiEnviro. Men Who Cook will feature the culinary treats of 49 “celebrity” cooks, along with dancing and auctions.
The event will be held February 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Texas Ballroom at Safari Texas Ranch. Jeff Council will be the auctioneer for the evening and the Ken Mondshine and the Brotherhood Band will provide the evening’s musical entertainment.
Proceeds from the evening are used to support the creative ideas and classroom projects by Lamar CISD teachers that would otherwise go unfunded. L.E.A.F. also offers scholarship to graduating Lamar CISD students and to paraprofessionals working on their teaching certificates.
