They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and the American Cancer Society in DUMBO is banking on it.

On June 5, the institution is hosting a foodie blowout fundraiser hosted by cookbook titan Rozanne Gold and radio gourmand Arthur Schwartz (pictured). Manning the stoves will be top-drawer local kitchen talent like Jacques Gautier of Palo Santo, Michael Ayoub of Fornino, Robert Weiner of Le Petit Marche, and Daniel Eardley, the chef at Chestnut in Carroll Gardens.

“I lost an aunt to cancer,” Gautier told GO Brooklyn, “so the event is very important to me.”

The menu promises to include Ayoub’s artisanal pizza, Gautier’s empanadas and plenty of donated wine. Tickets start at $75, but tax-deductible snacking? That’s priceless.

And if eating for a good cause isn’t enough for you, attendees do have a chance to win prizes like a day of beauty at Pilo Arts salon in Bay Ridge, a print from artist Barbara Danin or furniture from DUMBO loft-furnisher extraordinaire BoConcepts in a raffle run by Gold and Schwartz.

“Eat, Drink & Be Hopeful” will take place from 7–10 pm on June 5 at the powerHouse Arena (37 Main St., at Water Street in DUMBO) Tickets are $75 and up. For information, call (718) 237-7851 x9114.
