2018 Calendar of Events
100 Men Who Cook - 3/10
100 of Terre Haute’s most notable men (bankers, attorneys, physicians, educators, and business leaders from every endeavor, or anyone who is well known to the public), after a careful and loving preparation, the chef creatively decorates his serving station, dons his favorite costume in an effort to entice the crowd of 900 friends, family, and fellow community members to take a nibble of their specialty cuisine. The prize: the coveted title of “TOP CHEF” and bragging rights for the next year! It's one of the most extraordinary social events of the year. Guests at 100 Men Who Cook will be treated to music, dancing, cash bar, a silent auction, and a gala setting, but at this event they will also have 100 options for their tasting pleasure. And, best of all, it benefits the Terre Haute Children’s Museum
