The Event

Saturday, August 12 2017
WMU Bernhard Center 6pm


Imagine over 600 guests gathered together in the WMU Bernhard Center’s ballroom on Saturday August 12th 2017.  There are 100 chef stations around the perimeter of the room, all manned by local men – centers of influence in our community – serving their favorite dish and earning tips (donations) from all of those guests.  Cocktails are being served, a silent auction is taking place and everyone is having a great time raising money for the Boys and Girls Club of Kalamazoo.

Since 2009, “100 Men Who Cook” has been Old National Bank’s signature fundraising event, relying heavily on the volunteer efforts of ONB associates – and the collaborative spirit of our local communities – for its great success.  ONB has now hosted 44 of these events throughout our footprint, raising nearly $4 million for more than 30 charities and even winning a 2016 Community Commitment Award from the American Bankers Association.

Old National Bank and the Boys and Girls Club of Kalamazoo will host Michigan’s first 100 Men Who Cook event on August 12, 2017.  We are currently recruiting chefs and seeking corporate sponsorships for this inaugural event.

All proceeds from 100 Men Who Cook will benefit The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kalamazoo.
