Meet our 2019 Ribs for Kids MC


Rick Kantor

We thought we’d spice up this year’s Ribs for Kids Cook-Off by bringing in a Creativity Expert to Emcee- So get as wild and crazy as you want with those recipes and lets turn up the heat and the fun!

Rick Kantor can best be described as a serial entrepreneur and a guy who never knew there was a box to think outside of! In fact he has a Masters Degree in Creativity! His creative products and companies have included: an international Halloween Company, designing funny hats for those theme parks The Mouse built and for Cirque du Soleil; leading gift and novelty items; stationery and greeting cards. Rick ran a green build natural interior plaster and design showroom in Penngrove, and has produced a number of notable Broadway musicals. His greatest pleasure these days is teaching: Rick is a professor of Creativity and Innovation for Drexel University online, and along with Toastmaster colleague Cara Wasden teaches 11th-12th graders the “7 Keys to Crush your Interviews.” We know him as a guy who likes to have fun with a great sense of humor …so be prepared to take some ribbing while supporting a great cause.  He plans to arrive hungry.
