“Dave Thomas Celebrity Cookoff”




                    When you’re hot, you’re hot. And, celebrity chefs at the 10th anniversary of the Dave Thomas Celebrity Cookoff were hot — especially while dancing with knives, cooking tableside and captivating their guests.
    The dinner and auction held at Benihana raised about $70,000 for Northeast Ohio Adoption Services and Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
    The live auction featured a personalized comic strip by cartoonist Jenny Campbell that will run in 40 Sunday newspapers across the country, as well as art, resort vacations, and a football helmet signed by all four living Ohio State University Heisman Trophy winners. Celebrity chefs’ aprons, painted by local children and autographed by the celebrities, were auctioned off.
    Northeast Ohio Adoption Services has found and developed families for more than 1,200 Ohio children since 1978, according to Executive Director Cindy Deal.
    In 1992, the late Dave Thomas, an adoptee and founder of Wendy’s restaurants, founded the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. He often would say, “If just one child gets adopted and finds a loving home, all our efforts will be worthwhile.” The foundation has helped thousands of children find permanent homes with parents who opened their hearts.
