WEST AKRON — Summa Health System hosted its 13th annual Men Who Cook fundraising event that showcased the talent of local amateur chefs — everyone from Summa physicians to business leaders to police officers to athletic coaches and more.

The event, which took place April 26 at St. Joseph’s Family Center, raised $70,000 to support the Summa Screens program, according to Summa officials. The program provides free cancer screenings, including mammograms and prostate cancer education, for uninsured and underinsured individuals in the community, according to Summa officials.

The chefs cooked up some of their best dishes for event attendees and for a panel of female judges at the Hollywood-themed event, “Hooray for Hollywood.”

The winner’s of the People’s Choice Award went to John Nouse and Mike Schmidt, from the Akron Police Department, shown at right top from left.
