SYCAMORE – Big Brothers Big Sisters of DeKalb County presents its second annual Cooking For Kids Sake fundraiser on Saturday, Nov. 1, at St. Mary Hall in Sycamore.

Cooking for Kids’ Sake is a family-friendly event that features youth chefs from around the area. Community members are invited to try sample-sized portions of the chefs’ best dishes. All funds raised will go directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of DeKalb County. Tickets to the event are $15 for adults and $10 for children 10 and younger. There is also a family package (two adults and two children) for $40. The event will be held from 5-7 p.m.

There are three divisions: Middle School, High School and Family. Each cook is responsible for purchasing ingredients for their recipe they serve. If you are interested joining in on the fun and becoming a chef, contact Courtney at 815-758-8616.

Family Service Agency’s Big Brothers Big Sisters program has been providing the youth of DeKalb County with positive adult role models for more than 40 years. Big Brothers Big Sisters has a large part in helping children of DeKalb County stay positive with their everyday lives and out of trouble.
