COOK FOR A CURE

Oftentimes food is the centerpiece of great celebrations. Even though we can’t be together in person, this November the Cook for a Cure virtual event will bring us together through the shared experience of cooking!

This first-ever virtual event will begin with a segment of a popular St. Louis chef preparing their favorite meal. The ingredients and full menu will be shared with guests prior to the event so they can cook along with the chef. Throughout the rest of the night, speakers and celebrity guests can share the message of the mission while preparing their meals.

Please plan to join us virtually on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 7 p.m., for Cook for a Cure, Empowering Change for ALS. For more information, contact Elizabeth Roe at eroe@alsastl.org or call 314-432-7257 ext. 226.
