Calling all chefs, Children's Museum seeking 100 Men Who Cook

100 men who cook terre hautePlans are underway for 100 Men Who Cook, the annual fundraiser that features 100 men cooking up their favorite dishes for the benefit of the Terre Haute Children's Museum.

This year's event will take place on April 8, the theme is "100 Men Who Cook - Goin' Country," and the search is on for both returning and new chefs to take part. Whether you cook entrees, salads, soups, appetizers, side dishes or desserts, consider being a part of this fun-filled event! Over the last nine years, the event has grown to become one of the most talked-about events in the area, and to date, we have raised more than $700,000 for the Museum!

100 men who cook terre hauteOn April 8, approximately 900 people will pack the floor of Hulman Center as 100 local male leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors share their favorite recipes. The fun-filled evening raises approximately $100,000 each year for the Museum, and all funds raised at the event support the Museum in its mission to “enrich our children's lives through the exploration of science and technology.” These important funds not only help the Museum enhance our exhibits and programs, but they also support scholarship programs that provide free and reduced admission and program fees to children, families and school groups that are in need.

Since it opened its doors in 1988, the Terre Haute Children’s Museum has been a fun and exciting destination for area children and families – a place filled with hands-on exhibits and experiences that encourage learning through play. On Sept. 24, 2010, the Museum moved from a 3,000-square-foot building to a new 26,000-square-foot facility located at the corner of 8th Street and Wabash Avenue in downtown Terre Haute. The new building has three floors and a wide range of exhibits – including a two-story tree house, health exhibits, a water table, an agriculture exhibit, and a dinosaur dig. Of the approximately 50,000 people who visit us each year, nearly 12,000 of those visitors receive free or reduced admission fees thanks to the generosity of our donors. We are so very grateful for the community's support in helping us make our facility accessible to all.
