The Mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs talks about Helping Youth Who Need Us Most. Please help by tipping to this event.

Sous Chef – Allison Kinzer is this year’s Sous Chef for Andrew Fitzpatrick, the Executive Vice President for Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County. She is also the 2017 Youth of the Year at the Elkhart Boys & Girls Club, in which this 100 Men That Cook Event is currently raising funds.
Allison has VOLUNTEERED to REPRESENT the Elkhart Boys & Girls Clubs so she can LEARN and CONTRIBUTE to RAISING FUNDS on behalf of her CLUB. Andrew will be recognizing Allison in her efforts and hopes you will join in and contribute to their goal or raising $3,500/Plus for their first experience at the 100 Men of Elkhart Event. Please read her brief bio for this event below and donate a minimum of $10.00. Anything more than this would be fantastic and your contribution will help provide GREAT Futures to all children at the Boys & Girls Club.
“My name is Allison Kinzer and I am the current Youth of the Year of the Elkhart Teen Center. I have been an active member since 3rd grade and am currently a freshman at Elkhart Memorial High School; I am a very dedicated individual. My education is highly important to me and I appreciate all subjects. However, physical education is my favorite. My family and basketball are also of high importance to me. Family is important to me because of my immediate family sticking together through thick and thin. With a three year long adoption process finally being complete, I can now say my grandfather, who is also my hero, is my legal guardian. While dealing with that process, I made it a priority to be more involved with the Boys and Girls Club. Being an active member is a positive impact on my life and I cannot wait to be in the new Brady Unit to continue my journey at the Club.
My goal at 100 Men Who Cook is to raise more than enough tips to provide the same opportunities or more, for members to create their own journey in Boys and Girls Club and receive a positive impact on their lives. Speaking for the members of the Elkhart Boys and Girls Club, we thank you in advance and your donation will be highly appreciated.”

Allison and I have a goal to raise $3,500 in tips. Hopefully more!!! We both share the vision to raise money that will help other members at the Boys & Girls Clubs in Elkhart, to have a positive impact on their lives.
For the event itself, we will make my signature dessert, Mandazi. This is an African dessert that is similar to an American donut. My wife Miriam, who is from Kenya Africa, has allowed me to use her recipe and will be assisting usJ!!!
Please “Tip to Great Futures” by clicking the TIP BUTTON on this page. You can tip in increments of $5.00 but we are asking if you can make a minimum tip/donation of $10.00. We definitely welcome anything higher and it would be a true blessing for the Club members.
We hope to see you at the event. General admission tickets can be purchased through the website.
