Rachael Cooks for 500 Friends at Annual Hometown Fundraiser

Every year for the last 13 years, Rachael’s annual fundraiser in her hometown of Lake George has sold out, and this year was no different. 

With more than 500 attendees (one of which drove more than 325 miles to come!), the event is always a blast. Some attendees have joined every year, and newcomers even included a couple who recently got engaged on The Rachael Ray Show

Rachael signs books, does a cooking demonstration, and loves the opportunity to meet and greet friends and fans from home. This year, everyone enjoyed noshing on her White Chili Turkey Tacos (pictured above) and watching her cook the following recipes, recently featured on The Rachael Ray Show.

Even if you couldn’t hang out with Rachael at home, you can cook along with her with these delectable dishes!

The fundraiser benefits the Lake George High School Alumni Association and the Lake George Central School District. The money raised goes to scholarships to students, student groups, and to fund individual Lake George Central School District projects. It’s even helped to fund and build a beautiful media center at the school.
