SHARE Raises ~$500K at the Annual Benefit

Last Monday’s event at Pier 60 brought together leading women of stove, stage, screen and publishing to help raise money for SHARE, a non-profit organization that offers free peer support to women with breast or ovarian cancer, their families and friends. All of SHARE’s services are free of charge and include helplines, educational programs, support groups, and public-health initiatives.

According to Beth Kling, SHARE’s communications director, the fundraiser raised close to half a million dollars — $496K to be more exact — enabling this organization to continue to support those affected by breast or ovarian cancer.

Below is the list of the chefs, their sous chefs and the foods attendees got to sample at SHARE.
