"Fine Food For a Cause" Fundraiser to Fight Childhood Obesity

CTbites Team

Please help conquer an important battle that is being waged in our own backyard - the fight against childhood obesity and the critical need to teach local children and their families about the value of healthy eating and exercise.

On Monday, January 27, 2014 the Stamford Family YMCA will host more than 200 local supporters to help their fight against childhood obesity. The event, Fine Food For A Cause, will be held at the Palace Theatre in Stamford at 6:30PM. At this year’s event guests can sample a plethora of culinary creations provided by chefs of 10 outstanding well-known Stamford restaurants including: Barcelona, bartaco, Columbus Park Trattoria, Bar Q, Quattro Pazzi, Sushi Charlie, Tabuouli Grill, Sweet Lisa’s, Napa & Company, Forever Sweet Bakery and David’s Soundview Catering.

The evening will include dinner, music, live auction and a commemorative journal, with special guest, Chris Hansen, TV Journalist and NBC Dateline correspondent, serving as Master of Ceremonies 

Proceeds from the event will support the Stamford Family YMCA’s youth development and healthy living programs. A cornerstone of this effort will be the building of a youth and teen wing with a multi-purpose teaching kitchen at the Y, to deliver cooking skills and nutritional education to underserved local children and their families and the community at large.

Our Y Community Honorees include Madhu Mathur, MD, MPH and Thomas Sanseverino. Madhu Mathur has done exceptional work, both in the Stamford community and at the Y, seeking local solutions to the global problem of children with special healthcare needs and childhood obesity. Thomas Sanseverino is a business owner and president of CAMSAN, Inc. who has contributed extraordinary support of the Y and the community at large.
