Charity Cook-Offs

Charity Cook-Offs for a Cause

The beginning of March is really an amazing time. Winter is finally loosening its grip, and by the end of the month we will officially be enjoying Spring on the patio! It also marks the successful culmination of our annual Charity Cook-Offs here at The Ginger Man. Every year we have the pleasure of hosting Chili, Salsa, and One-Pot Cook-Offs to benefit some amazing local charities. This year’s events combined live music, raffles, silent auctions, a huge selection of beer and of course a bunch of delicious food prepared by the teams competing!

As much fun as all of those things are though, the real focus should be on the amazing work the charities do for those in need. So take a moment and check out each charity below. We’re honored to partner with each of them.

Ronald McDonald House

“Helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big enough emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. RMHC can help address those problems, whether they involve housing that’s near a hospitalized child, the expense of staying together in another city, or even getting basic medical and dental care in a vulnerable community.”
