Hall High School’s Relay for Life Team, “Warriors for a Cure,” has been cooking up some new and creative ways to raise cancer awareness and funds during this pandemic.

As a club that usually depends on in-person fundraising events, it has been difficult finding new ways to raise money and show support to The American Cancer Society. But don’t worry, because they have come up with something delicious!

The Warriors for a Cure will host a virtual cooking event on Thursday evening, March 11, from 6-7 p.m. This event will be hosted by registered dietitian, nutritionist, and cookbook author, Dana White.

White currently works as a sports dietitian and is an associate clinical faculty member at Quinnipiac University. She has published eight cookbooks, on topics ranging from smoothies to air fryer recipes. Even though you are guaranteed to have a great thyme, everyone who signs up for the cooking class will also be eligible to win one of White’s cookbooks. You butter believe you are in good hands with Dana White.

So if you want to spice up your dinner, join us in making a cast iron skillet paella for dinner and a chocolate pantry bark for dessert, from the comfort of your own home. With an event this awesome, there is no margarine for error, so registrations can only be accepted until March 1.

You will receive confirmation from a Relay for Life member once your registration and donation have both been received.  On March 4, you will receive an ingredients list and the Zoom link for the cooking class.

You are also invited to make a donation by check or Venmo if you donut want to cook with us, but want to support the cause! All proceeds will go directly to the American Cancer Society.
