Middle Georgians can get a cooking lesson, eat a delicious meal and enjoy plenty of entertainment all while raising funds for charity at Cooking with Chef Audrey for a Cure on Saturday at the Wellness Center.
The event will benefit Macon-based Joshuas Wish, founded in 2009 in memory of 5-year-old Joshua Solomon, who died from an inoperable brain tumor that year.
Chef Audrey participated in Joshuas Walk in September, during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. She is a hoot, said Labrina Solomon, Joshua Solomons mother and founder of Joshuas Wish.
The chef and Christian comedian will prepare a mixed green salad with peach vinaigrette for the first course, followed by crab-stuffed beef tenderloin with potato Anna and garlic roasted asparagus with New Orleans-style bread pudding for dessert.
Guests will get to take home the recipes, and door prizes will be up for grabs as well.
In addition to financially assisting families of children who have cancer and raising awareness of childhood cancer, Joshuas Wish partners with AmStar Cinemas to treat sick children to a movie once a month and provides a snack box at Hope for Kids for children undergoing chemotherapy.
Registration for the event is available at www.joshuaswish.org.
