An enthusiastic crowd of over 300 guests and media helped to create a memorable 8th Annual NYC Event. Some of New York City's most prestigious chefs provided an evening of culinary adventure in support of STREETS International.
Street Food Tasting Stations featured: Chefs Robert Danhi, Southeast Asian Specialist; Aaron Bludorn, Café Boulud; Daniel Holzman & Michael Chernow; The Meatball Shop; PJ Calapa, Ai Fiori; Wylie Dufresne, Alder; Leah Cohen, Pig & Khao; Ron Hsu, Le Colonial; James Briscione, Institute of Culinary Education; Thomas Chen, Tuome; Sam Mason, OddFellows; and Sweet Afton Mixologists Rob Mohally & Mike Di Tota.
An energetic live and silent auction featured a luxury 10-day Vietnam holiday, a glorious 5-day body, mind and soul retreat at Lapinha Spa in Brazil, and an inspiring 3-day getaway in old Quebec at Le Monastere des Augustines, with all proceeds going directly to support the disadvantaged youth whose lives STREETS will change forever.
