Throughout my career in banking, I've been fortunate to work with many talented and dedicated people in our community who invest countless volunteer hours to enrich the lives of those less fortunate. The volunteers and chefs who make the 100 Men Who Cook a premier fundraising event are no exception! I'm honored to be a part of this year's event. My love of baking started in elementary school where I competed each year at the Delaware County 4-H Fair for that coveted blue ribbon in baking. Crescent rolls and cakes were my favorite to make. Although I still bake crescent rolls every Thanksgiving for my family, I've selected Red Velvet Cupcakes for 100 Men Who Cook. The recipe comes from a former colleague of mine and insurance agent with PCE Insurance Agency. Thank you, Cathy Crabtree!
I'm very excited for this year's event -- and completely thrilled that my sous chef is Tara Smalstig, Attorney/Partner with Dennis, Wenger & Abrell. Her tireless commitment to our community, as well as to her clients, family, friends, church and faith are inspiring. Thank you, Tara, for helping us raise funds for programming, services and activities for Champions for a Safe Community.
