ABOUT THE EVENT
The Master Chef Celebration is an amazing opportunity to experience the cuisine of dozens of New York City’s most well-known chefs and restaurants. It will be an evening spent tasting signature dishes and fine wines, and includes a live and silent auction. For over 30 years, the Adaptive Sports Foundation has been providing sports and recreation opportunities to thousands of children and adults with both cognitive and physical disabilities. Considered one of the top adaptive sport programs in the country, the ASF has been on the cutting edge of adaptive sports programming and has provided what participants have often described as “life changing experiences”. In 2005, the
Foundation saw an opportunity to use its knowledge to serve our nation’s severely injured United States servicemen and women. The ASF is proud to have been one of the first programs in the country to offer sport programs to our wounded military personnel and in the past twelve years has served hundreds of wounded warriors and their families.
The evening will feature celebrity chef, Carla Hall, co-host of ABC’s The Chew, past Top Chef competitor, restaurateur, and author as the evening’s MC and host. Chef Carla’s approach to cooking blends her classic French training and Southern upbringing for a twist on traditional favorites. She is committed to health and balance in everyday living. Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen, the chef’s first restaurant, is now open in Brooklyn, New York.2017 Warriors in Motion Master Chefs Raphael Abrahante Thalassa Restaurant Julian Alonzo Hudson Garden Grill, Starr Group Gregg Azzollini Paul and Jimmy’s Ristorante Aaron Bashy Maloney & Porcelli Carol Becker William Greenberg Desserts Heather Bertinetti Rozzi Stella Artisan Italian Sherry Blockinger Sherry B Dessert Studio Anthony Bucco Restaurant Latour Paul Denamiel Le Rivage Brian DiMarco Barterhouse Wines and Spirits Walter Drobenko Caviarteria Michael Ferraro Delicatessen Adrienne Guttieri Trademark Taste + Grind Carla Hall Southern Kitchen Diane Henderiks Lior Lev Sercarz La Boite Maria Loi Loi Estiatorio Carlos Manansala Parlor Steak and Fish Sam Adams Boston Beer Company Julian Medina Toloache Dan Monteforte Swingbellys BBQ John Mooney Bell Book & Candle Harold Moore Bakesale Rick Quattrini A Taste of Tuscany Lucas Santos Caviarteria John Sarubbi FDNY – Marine 9 Ivy Stark Dos Caminos Telegraphe Cafe Hank Tibensky Hank’s Juicy Beef Jack Timmons Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Tito’s Handmade Vodka Sue Torres The Fairfield County Hunt Club Andrew Welch Asellina Denton Whyte Inside Park Event Committee Chef Carla Hall Stephan and Stacie Kiratsous Event Co-Chairs Phil and Susan Harris Honorary Co-Chairs Scott Alpaugh Shamus Barnes Moreen Carey Mike Carley Tim Delaney Eric Derector Karen Feldman Scott Feldman Carolyn Feller TJ Flaherty Brendan Gallagher Lee T.
