Distinguished Male Cooks Event on June 25th! Get your tickets today!


On Sunday, June 25, 2017 the Urban League of Rochester will be hosting the 27th Annual Distinguished Male Cooks event, sponsored by the Urban League Guild. The event will be held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center, and will begin at 3:00pm and will feature 40 Male Cooks delivering samples of their signature dishes.

The event costs $25 for adults, $15 for youth.

Proceeds from this fun, family event benefit Urban League programs, such as Project Achieve and Project Ready, which are designed to prepare African-American students who are transitioning from middle school to high school and from high school to college. The programs engage students in curriculum that prepares them academically, socially, and culturally for higher education.

The event will also support the Black Scholars Endowment Fund, which provides financial assistance to Urban League Black Scholars who are pursuing higher education.

For tickets or to sponsor the event, call (585)325-6530 ext. 3002. For more comprehensive information about the Urban League, please visit www.ulrochester.org/events. We hope to see you on the 25th of June with full hearts and empty stomachs.

For some extra fun, purchase a Pre-Event Ticket (Male Cooks admission included) to the MAJESTIC DANCE PARTY that begins at 2pm. Pre-Event Passes are $10 each!
