JASPER — Mentors for Youth and Crisis Connection were each awarded $25,000 from Old National Bank’s 100 Men Who Cook.

The awards were announced Wednesday.

This year’s 100 Men Who Cook in Jasper has been postponed due to COVID-19. But the committee decided to partially distribute the funds to the benefitting organizations with moneys that were raised from generous donors, a spokesperson said.

Mentors for Youth is dedicated to facilitating mutually beneficial relationships between youth and adults for the purpose of enhancing individual lives in Dubois County. Crisis Connection promotes individual accountability and respect to end domestic violence and sexual assault through confidential crisis intervention, victim advocacy, primary prevention education, and collaboration with community partners.

The 100 Men Who Cook event is hosted by Old National Bank in partnership with OFS Brands, Headquarters Inc, Memorial Hospital, Ruxer Ford Lincoln, Jasper Group, French Lick Resort, Best Home Furnishings, WITZ, Versteel, Jasper Engines and Transmissions, TrueScripts Management Services, Thermwood Corporation, and Norris, Blessinger, and Woebkenberg Orthopaedics & Spine.
