On SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 3PM TO 5 PM Alpha Kappa Alpha’s Annual Scholarship Fundraiser “Men Who Cook” is at the Fitchburg Community Center located on 5520 Lacy Road. Tickets are $15 in advance or can be purchased at the door the day of the event for $20.
Again, funds that are raised have been used to: Award scholarships to talented, minority high school seniors to help offset the cost of their first year in college; Award scholarships for elementary aged students to attend the African-American Ethnic Academy (AAEA); and to support local school and community arts programs (recently we have donated money to Lincoln Elementary Schools Strings program and are awarding money to Madison Creative and Performing Arts program to fund a scholarship for an African American child to attend a theatre camp).
So, please support us in this effort as we would like to do more!
This year we will have spoken work entertainment. A few of the featured cooks this year include:
Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz
MMSD School Board Member Juan Lopez
Madison Police Chief Noble Wray
Madison Police Officer Carlos Valentin
Andre Bernard and James Lynch (formerly and presently with Nehemiah Community Development Corp. and members at Fountain of Life Family Worship Center)
A few of the dishes you can look forward to sampling include:

“Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.” — John F. Kennedy (1917 – 1963)
