Tickets are nearly sold out for the October 19, 2017, event being held at the Rusty Rail Brewing Company, but a wait list is being filled, more information is available by calling 570-522-4850. Weis Markets is the grand sponsor of this year’s event.
Community members can still take part in the fun while supporting the Center for Breast Health by participating in the fan favorite contest. Prior to the event, individuals can visit www.evanhospital.com/cookinmen, and vote for their favorite chef. The chef who raises the most money will receive the honorary title of “Top Chef” at the event. All of the fan favorite funds and ticket proceeds will go to support healthcare navigation and the survivorship program for breast cancer patients and their families at The Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health. The top chef contest ends at noon on October 19, 2017.
In addition to the pre-event contest, attendees will get to vote for their favorite dish by sampling all of the options and casting their vote. An award will also be given to the chef who receives the most votes for representing the most pink enthusiasm at the event. The winners will be announced at the end of the evening.

BEVERLEY CONRAD TO ENTERTAIN WITH GHOST STORIES AND FIDDLE MUSIC
AT NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY OCTOBER 19 MEETING
As darkness descends on the Susquehanna River Valley on Thursday, October 19, Beverley Conrad, the fiddle-playing storyteller from Salem Swamp, will entertain those gathered at the Northumberland County Historical Society with ghost stories dealing with historic locales, accompanied by spooky fiddle music.
Conrad and her husband, Greg Burgess, have collected stories from the hills and hollows of Central Pennsylvania over the years as they’ve taken their musical talent on the road throughout the region. Several years ago, they assembled the stories into the book, “The Headless Dog and Other Stories.” She will share some of these stories and enhance them with her well known fiddle music. Following her presentation, members of the audience may purchase autographed copies of her book.
The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Society’s headquarters at 1150 N. Front Street in Sunbury and is open to the public and free of charge. A reception will follow the program. For more information, call 570-286-4083 or visit www.northumberlandcountyhistoricalsociety.org
