The Marco Island Men’s Cooking Club, aka the Gourmet Stud Muffins, announce that the club has raised a total of $28,458 for Harry Chapin Food Bank in 2019.
The Gourmet Stud Muffins meet several times each month at a member’s home to learn about food and preparation, cook and share a meal.
The accompanying photo shows the club at their holiday celebration, where they exchanged holiday cookies and finalized their fundraising effort in support of the food bank.
Harry Chapin Food Bank thanks the Gourmet Stud Muffins for creating their own fundraising recipe to help fight hunger. We appreciate their generous support!
