Real Men Cook Event
REAL MEN COOK is a family celebration, observed on Father's Day. It honors the entire family no matter the configuration. Women are delighted by the positive role models and take the opportunity to invite husbands, coached, teachers and others who positively contribute to the community or family. The celebration takes place beyond the events in the eleven cities, but new family and extended family traditions are growing from the spirit of REAL MEN COOK. Most men are helping with the family, getting the kids off to school and otherwise contributing to family harmony, but never get acknowledged for their contributions. Finally Father's Day is becoming meaningful and women and children are the beneficiaries.
Legacy Associates Foundation was one of the beneficiary non-profit organizations of
Real Men Cook Event held in Detroit, MI on Father's Day. Each year, the Men of Legacy volunteer as cooks at the event and help attract additional participants. For more information on Real Men Cook or our community activities contact: Legacy Associates Foundation at 313.309.3230, email or visit
