As part of the 42nd annual National Philanthropy Day, Sam “The Cooking Guy” Zien was named Outstanding Celebrity Philanthropist, and we couldn’t agree more.

For the past six years, Sam has dedicated time putting on shows to benefit Noah Homes residents, serving as auctioneer for our golf tournament, and most recently acting as master of ceremonies for our 30th anniversary celebration in partnership with Father Joe (video here).

As a committed supporter of Mama’s Kitchen, Sam has also helped build Mama’s Day into an extraordinary culinary evening and one of San Diego’s premier philanthropic events.

Sam has won 14 Emmy Awards for his show “Sam The Cooking Guy,” published three cookbooks and hosted more than 450 online episodes of “The Sam Livecast.”
