Chef Sean Whittaker is leading a virtual cooking event to benefit children via Assistance League of the Columbia Pacific. Pictured with Whittaker are league board members Jane Cartwright, left, Shelby Mogenson and some stand-in young beneficiaries.

This month, a night full of cooking lessons from a local chef will mean helping clothe and provide services for local children.

Assistance League of the Columbia Pacific is hosting “Globe Trotting with Chef Sean” on Sunday. The event, which will take place online, offers participants the chance to join a Zoom cooking class where they will learn how to make multiple dishes from around the world.

Chef Sean Whittaker, chef at Finn’s Fish House and a former Iron Chef Goes Coastal winner, will lead the classes. All proceeds for the event will go toward programs directly benefiting children of Clatsop County.
