Our second fundraiser was held on November 15, 2018 at De Gustibus Cooking School in New York City. It was an evening of preparation and dining with celebrity chef Alex Guarnaschelli, executive chef and owner of the NYC restaurant, Butter. Again, we chose to honor one of Matthew’s greatest passions, food. Matthew loved eating and watching all cooking shows on television. One of his favorites was Chopped, on which Alex was often a guest judge. What a perfect way to combine two of his loves! The evening was a huge success, raising over $7000 through admission sales and raffle tickets. There was a surprise guest appearance by the Desperate Housewives star, Teri Hatcher. It was a truly memorable evening. Special thanks to our good friends, Gary Portuesi and Sal Rizzo for hosting this amazing event.
