City Men Cook is gathering once again for the largest Sunday Dinner in North Texas. The Father’s Day event presented by A Taste of the South Charities, Inc. will be on June 18 at the African American Museum from 3 to 6 p.m. with a star-studded line-up of celebrity hosts, tasters and honored cooks delivering tasty dishes, live entertainment and youth friendly exercises.
This annual culinary event, deemed as one of the largest urban Father’s Day celebrations in the country, is moving forward with a new fun-filled line-up and additional community initiatives to celebrate Father’s Day, Hip Hop and Juneteenth.
“The men who cook meals for the charities our event supports are proud to do something they love to give back and connect to their communities. The event showcases men in a very positive light,” Ora Guy, City Men Cook volunteer logistics manager.
“We continue our commitment to fathers and father figures in our families and communities through this showcase of men, mentors and leaders and this year we are happy to have Oscar Joyner returning to cook with us. We are excited about the addition of NFL player, Trevis Gipson and his father, Thomas Gipson.”
Trevis Gipson, of the Chicago Bears will join City Men Cook 2023 along with his father, City Men Cook veteran cook, Thomas Gipson. The Chicago Bears front office shared that Trevis has had a remarkable season with the team. This season, he saw game action on both defense and special teams in the Week 1 victory vs. San Francisco, finishing the contest with three solo tackles, one QBH and one pass defense.
“Our mission is clear and what remains most important is that we are uplifting success stories that highlight leadership, fatherhood and mentoring through our culinary driven showcase of everyday men, mentors and leaders” said Terry Allen, Taste of the South inc., founder. “To celebrate our 24th year of existence and our 23rd event year, all returning cooks can register free and as we welcome the return of Oscar Joyner all youth tickets are free until June 5 online only.”
City Men Cook is entering its 23rd year of transforming the celebration of Father’s Day into a meaningful movement of the way the world views men in relationship to their families and community. High profile DFW leadership, celebrities, fathers, mentors, and families donate their name and time to the event. Mentors, Fathers, leaders and all men in the community cook their favorite dishes and all proceeds go to local charities in Dallas.
