Event Information

Back after a pandemic-enforced hiatus, The Center for Whitley County Youth’s 13th annual Cook-Off returns on April 21st at 6pm (Doors open at 5:30pm). All 3 cooking teams are made up of local restaurant and catering professionals competing for the votes of 400 hungry mouths. This year’s teams are:

Those sampling the 3-course meals will determine by ballot voting the winner of the 3 awards: “Best Appetizer", "Best Entree", and "Best Dessert". Complete with live music, great food, and plenty of social time with friends, neighbors, and family, it’s an event you don’t want to miss. Capacity fills up fast, so please RSVP below.

The Cook-Off also provides a unique opportunity (as this is the only fundraising event The Center conducts each year) to hear stories of students who have been impacted by The Center. The cost of the event is free thanks to our sponsors, but there will be an opportunity for a free-will donation. Each year's event has a large amount of matching funds available to increase the impact of any gift! Registration will open in early spring of 2022!

Note: Tables seat a MAXIMUM of 8 people. No childcare is provided.
