Join us for an evening of toasted walnuts, sautéed apples, and equal amounts of butter and cheer. The United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley's Emerging Leaders group is hosting its first ever Friendraiser - a cooking class!
This evening will be a fun way to meet new friends, eat great food that you make yourself, and we might even have a few minutes to share a couple of low commitment ways you and your crew can share your time, energy, and skills to help out others in the Chippewa Valley.
At this event, you can look forward to learning a smattering of basic kitchen and cooking skills and then work to prepare and enjoy a carefully curated dinner that you can repeat in your own kitchen to convince your friends and family and you can "cook fancy" now. The class will be hosted by Clint Markin, CRPC®, CFP®, Financial Advisor, Markin Mickelson Financial Group of Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC. Former Chef at the St. Paul Grill in the historic St. Paul Hotel, Downtown St. Paul, MN.
