Chamber Chat: The recipe for 60 Men Who Cook

Published: Monday, April 7, 2014 10:27 p.m. CST • Updated: Wednesday, April 9, 2014 1:50 p.m. CST

Take:

• 1 Geneva History Center

• 1 Geneva Lions Club

• 1 Rotary Club of Geneva

• 1 Geneva Chamber of Commerce

Place these four nonprofits at the Prairie Events Center at the Kane County Fairgrounds on Friday. Toss in 60 local chefs. Parade them first at 5:30 p.m. At 6:15 p.m., have them serve up apps, sides, main dishes and desserts to a couple hundred people.

Before the evening ends, vote for a favorite chef/dish. For ease, four votes are included in the $35 price of the ticket. You might want to buy your ticket beforehand, as the price is $40 at the door. Add more votes by purchasing them that evening.

For a finishing touch, add a pinch of evening fun, blend in some goodwill and garnish with a satisfied palate.

A night of great fun, great food and great giving back.

For ticket information, call 630-232-6060 or stop by the Geneva Chamber of Commerce office at 8. S. Third St. in Geneva.

The past couple of months’ weather has certainly been frightful. Now, here is something delightful.

In case you hadn’t heard, the Geneva Chamber is hosting a City-Wide Garage Sale April 25 and 26. We will do all the advertising, marketing, signage and map creation, which will be available interactively online, or printed. You keep all your profits. 

Still unsure about participating? Read on.

• Community involvement: A portion of your registration fees will help in the cost of the 65th Grand Parade held the last day of Swedish Days presented by Cadence Health.

• It’s good for your wallet: Everyone appreciates a little extra cash. Put the money generated from your garage sale toward an unexpected treat.

• One person’s garbage is another person’s treasure: That old disco ball you bought in a moment of madness in 1979 and kept in your garage for 30-plus years? It could be garden art in someone else’s backyard.

• Get rid of clutter: Back to the disco ball in your garage – think about all the items you’ve purchased over the years that have been taking up space and collecting dust.  Free up that valuable real estate for other uses.

• It’s good for the environment: Remember the three R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle. By holding a garage sale, you’re diverting goods from landfills.

There still are two days left to be included with the early-bird price of just $25. Visit www.primegaragesales.com/geneva.html to sign up online. 

If you prefer to pay with cash or check in our office, download the form at genevachamber.com.

I don’t know if April showers will bring May flowers, but I do know that April brings three fun events from the Geneva Chamber of Commerce.
