The Event

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), 100 Men Who Cook Go For The Gold has been temporarily postponed. Check back soon for a new date and more information.

As a nonprofit that receives very little city, state, or federal funding, we ask for your support. When the time is right for you and your family, we would appreciate it if you would consider making a donation to 100 Men Who Cook by tipping our chefs. The funds raised by this event are vital to operate and maintain the Terre Haute Children's Museum. From camp scholarships to new exhibits to building maintenance, these funds touch every aspect of the Museum.

We are sincerely grateful for all of you. Be well!


Collectively, more than $6.1 million has been raised through 57 different 100 Men Who Cook events across multiple Old National regions to benefit local organizations.

What makes the event so special? Imagine 100 of Terre Haute’s most notable men (bankers, attorneys, physicians, educators, and business leaders from every endeavor, or anyone who is well known to the public) retreating into their respective kitchens to concoct their favorite dish. After a careful and loving preparation, the chef creatively decorates his serving station, dons his favorite costume in an effort to entice the crowd of friends, family, and fellow community members to take a nibble of their specialty cuisine. The prize: The coveted title of “TOP CHEF” and bragging rights for the next year!

For $80 per person or $600 for a table of eight, guests at 100 Men Who Cook will be treated to music, dancing, cash bar, a silent auction, and all the usual offerings of a gala setting, but at this event they will also have 100 options for their tasting pleasure. They’ll also enjoy one of the most extraordinary social events of the year. And, it all benefits the Terre Haute Children’s Museum!
