FOOD | Distinguished Male Cooks


More than 40 of Rochester's community leaders will be cooking and serving their signature dishes at the Urban League of Rochester's 25th Annual Distinguished Male Cooks event. This year's cooks will include former RIT professor William J. Daniels; Glen Jeter, the owner of the Upper Falls Boulevard McDonald's; and Michael Schwabl of Dixon Schwabl. The Rochester Urban League is an organization that supports business development, services for the developmentally disabled, education and youth programs, and family and children services. This year's event will also feature a fashion show organized by Sheila Vaughn of SV Styles, who's SV Style Excellence Scholarship is awarded to a graduating African American girl to help her pursue a higher education.

The Distinguished Male Cooks dinner is Sunday, June 28, starting at 3 p.m. at the Riverside Convention Center, 123 East Main Street. Tickets to the dinner are $25 for adults, $15 for children under 12.
