To raise money and awareness for kidney disease, Ohio and Kentucky's National Kidney Foundation is once again hosting Cooking with the Stars. This culinary event, held Thursday, June 23 at The Blackwell Hotel, involves local celebrities and chefs joining forces to make various small plates. Guests can sample food, take part in a live auction and listen to music by a local radio DJ. Tickets cost $100 at www.kidney.org.
