Philanthropy and Donor Relations

Every October Evangelical Community Hospital celebrates National Breast Cancer Awareness month with Cookin' Men. This event is widely anticipated each year by sponsors, participating chefs, and many members of the community. Unfortunately, an in-person event is not possible this year due to the pandemic. We are still focused on raising funds to support patients of the Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health and welcome you to the 2020 Cookin' Men Online Chef Challenge! All funds raised will be used to provide diagnostic and screening mammograms and ultrasounds for uninsured and underinsured patients. 

Thank you for joining us. We appreciate your support!

About the Cause

The Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health offers expert diagnostic services and care in a supportive, comfortable setting for women with healthy breasts as well as those who are experiencing breast-health issues. We understand that finding your way through the healthcare system can be challenging and stressful. That’s why our compassionate, caring team of healthcare professionals is with you every step of the way, from routine breast exams and screening mammograms to follow up testing, biopsies, surgery, treatment, and recovery.

Top Chef Contest

Vote for your favorite chef to help them win the honorary title of "Top Chef." The Cookin' Men chef(s) who raise the most in donations for Evangelical's Center for Breast Health will be named "Top Chef" and receive the coveted Pink Whisk Award. 

Last year, Eric John & Paul John, Jr. were named "Top Chef" for raising $7,400 for Evangelical's Center for Breast Health! 

Favorite Dish Award

Each year at the event, one chef is awarded the "Favorite Dish Award". Guests at the event vote for their favorite dish of the evening once they have sampled all the dishes they desire to.

Last year in 2021, Carl Chambers of Fulton Bank was awarded the "Favorite Dish Award" for his Lobster Bisque!
