Welcome Letter

Greetings on behalf of The Ivy Legacy Foundation, the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Rho Theta Omega Chapter. This year, The Foundation is celebrating the 25th Annual Philly’s Men Are Cookin'®. 

We are writing to ask you to serve as a Chef for our 25th Philly’s Men Are Cookin’ (PMAC) celebration on Saturday, November 11, 2017.  This year, PMAC will return to the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum, near the Philadelphia airport.  For twenty-five years, Philadelphia’s best volunteer chefs have prepared exquisite dishes for a crowds of over 1000 people, who have gathered to raise money for scholarships and programs of service.  Since 1995, The Foundation has raised over $330,000 in scholarships for Philadelphia area high school students.  

All chefs are asked to prepare their favorite dish with enough food to serve samples to 100 people.  As a chef, you have the option to prepare an entrée, appetizer, or dessert. We ask that each chef arrive one hour prior to the start of the event to ensure readiness when guests arrive. Culinary creativity is welcome, but not required. In the spirit of fun and friendly competition, guests will have the opportunity to vote for the best dish of the evening and we will announce the winner at the end of the night. We encourage groups of friends and colleagues to register as chefs and we will work to have your stations next to each other during the event.  Leading up to the event we will host a happy hour and dinner to facilitate networking opportunities for registered chefs.  The cost of the event is complimentary for each chef and you will have the opportunity to purchase one additional discounted ticket for $35 for a guest or assistant chef.

Please complete the survey below to register as a chef for our 2017 event. Should you have questions or concerns, please reach out to us via email at pmac.chefs@gmail.com
