Inspired by the hilariously funny movie “Girls Trip,” the 25th Annual Philly’s Men Are Cookin’ celebration kicks-off Mardi Gras a few months early on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 7 PM at the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum located at 6825 Norwich Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia. More than 1,000 men and women are expected to attend the city’s premier celebration of taste featuring great networking and fabulous entertainment. Philly’s Men Are Cookin’ is sponsored by the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Rho Theta Omega Chapter’s non-profit organization The Ivy Legacy Foundation, which uses proceeds from the annual fundraiser to award college scholarships and fund year-round mentoring programs.

Fox 29’s Alex Holley from Good Day Philadelphia and Quincy Harris host of the new Q Show will add star power and excitement as emcees for the event. Holley is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, and Harris has been a celebrity chef for Philly’s Men Are Cookin’ since the event started in 1992.

Brown’s Family ShopRite is a proud sponsor, and owner Jeff Brown will be on hand along with more than 200 of Philadelphia’s most recognizable men like Anzio Williams, Vice President of News for NBC; and Marcus Allen, President & CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters. The volunteer chefs will showcase their culinary talents preparing and serving signature dishes including Jambalaya-Cajun Creole, Spicy Trinidadian Wings, and Sweet Potato Cheesecake.

Philly’s Men Are Cookin’ is the city’s most anticipated event of the year full of glitz, glamour, good food, and it’s all for a great cause. “Philly’s Men Are Cookin’ is our signature fundraising event,” says Jacqueline Lynne Washington, President of The Ivy Legacy Foundation. “Money raised from this one night will literally fuel our engines for the upcoming year, and allow us to continue making a difference in the greater Philadelphia community through mentoring programs and scholarship distribution.” So far The Ivy Legacy Foundation has distributed more than $300,000 in scholarships to college-bound students in Greater Philadelphia.

The backdrop for Philly’s Men Are Cookin’ is one of the world’s greatest sports car collection at The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum where partygoers will be able to see nearly 100 rare, historic cars including Ferraris, Alfa Romeos, Bugattis, Bentleys, and Aston Martins.
