The Children's Museum at La Habra presents its’ annual Gourmet Guys Raise "Bread" for Kids fundraiser at the La Habra Community Center on Sunday, October 15th. This unique event features favorite dishes prepared by more than 100 nonprofessional "chefs". Past “chefs” have included corporate executives, city officials, educators, and community leaders.

While guests are invited to sample delicious culinary creations, each dish is also judged by a team of professional chefs. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded for the most outstanding preparation and presentations in 14 categories. Fantastic food, tempting wines, an opportunity prize drawing and a silent auction combine to make this a truly memorable afternoon for our 300 anticipated attendees. 

All of the proceeds from Gourmet Guys Raise "Bread" for Kids benefit The Children's Museum at La Habra and the children and families that we serve.
