Real Men Cook

Real Men Cook

Real Men Cook, Arts Outreach’s much anticipated annual fundraiser, combines over 50 amateur male chefs, 35 premier local vintners and brewers, live music and fantastic auction items to create the Santa Ynez Valley’s Party of the Year!

“Real Men Cook” is a fundraiser for the Santa Ynez Valley nonprofit arts organization, Arts Outreach, that is dedicated to “bringing art to life and life to art.” Activities include elementary school classroom workshops and on-going art curriculum led by artists-in-residence; summertime Arts and Drama programs; after school Arts; semi-monthly Elder Arts entertainment; and the annual Applause Young Artists program.
