Hooked on Healthy Benefits the Kaleidoscope Fund


Take 25 women and one man, add Ellen Mueller, teacher at Jungle Jim’s Cooking School,  and what do you get?  Answer:  an extraordinary evening of fun, food, laughter and a unique dining experience.

The group watched as Ellen created a Mediterranean menu capped off by apple cake with warm brandy sauce.  Yum!

The event benefited the Foundation’s Kaleidoscope Fund that provides scholarships for the “non-traditional” women student – one who returns to school after several years of absence.  The Fund is in its early stages and the scholarship will be presented at the November Annual Meeting and Kaleidoscope Event.

You can donate to the fund by contacting the Foundation office at 513-829-6355.

Bon Appetit!
