Chowdown to benefit youth mentors

Featuring 20 local amateur chefs grilling savory treats, the 2nd annual “Chowdown in Cheesetown” will be held Saturday, Sept. 12 at the Plymouth Arts Center from 5 to 9 p.m. The fundraiser will benefit the mission and programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sheboygan County.

With more than 20 local sponsors lending their support and products, the Chowdown in Cheesetown is a uniquely local event that supports a local cause. Last year’s inaugural event raised $21,000.

“Last year, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Sheboygan County served 427 children and increased the number of matches by 13 percent,” according to Tim Kaker, executive director of the non-profit organization. “The generosity of our local communities is much of the reason we could match 57 more mentors to children who need a little extra boost.”

Licensed food professionals will be onsite to ensure food safety and assist volunteer grill chefs.

“This is a very entertaining evening and sampling all the dishes and voting for your favorite chef is just the beginning of it,” says Dave Hoffman, event co-chair. “Our chefs are very creative in the dishes they make and really enjoy letting others experience their creations.”

The evening will also feature entertainment by Little Blues Machine and a silent auction. The cost is $60 per person and a cash bar is available. Reservations can be made at or by calling 458-0111.
