LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — If you don't feel like making dinner on Oct. 19, don't worry. There are 100 men who will.

Tickets are now on sale for Old National Bank's 100 Men Who Cook event. The chefs cook up their favorite dish to benefit the Lafayette Transitional Housing Center.

This year's theme is 'All-Sports Tailgate Party.' You can sample 100 different food options, as well as bid on a variety of auction items. At the end of the night, whoever has the most tips goes home 'Top Chef.'

Old National Bank Northwest Region President Bob Smith says nobody leaves hungry,

"We've seen everything from crawfish etouffee, if I'm saying that correctly, all the way to people who just make cookies," said Smith. "So, it's a broad range. There are people who take their cooking and grilling very, very seriously."

Over the past five years, the event has raised more than $450,000 for area nonprofit organizations. 

"It has a reputation of being a fun fundraiser, so that was a good fit for us," said LTHC Development Director Jennifer Shook. "That will be a huge contribution to our overall mission of ending homelessness in Greater Lafayette."

WLFI is a sponsor of the event. News 18's Trevor Peters and photojournalist Brandon Fulk are two of the chefs.

The event is Saturday, Oct. 19 at 6 p.m. at Legacy Courts, 2660 Schuyler Avenue, in Lafayette. For ticket information, click here.
