A Matter of Taste: ARC of Westchester Foundation will hold a dinner at the CV Rich Mansion in White Plains featuring signature cuisine prepared by the finest chefs in the area. Abigail Kirsch, An American Bistro, Eastchester Fish Gourmet, and Mima Vintoeca are just a few of the culinary partners who will be sampling their fare at the event. The Youth Partner Award will be given to Scarsdale Middle School student Sabrina Wirth. As part of her recent Bat Mitzvah preparation, Sabrina undertook a community service project to raise money for the Arc of Westchester, setting a goal of $5,000. Sabrina’s interest in the Arc of Westchester arose from her family friendship with Alex Masket, a 25 year old with severe autism who lives in one of Arc of Westchester’s supervised residences. Their special connection was forged through art—Sabrina and Alex are each talented artists and creating art is an important aspect of their lives.
Dinner is planned for Tuesday night October 30 beginning at 6:00 pm with the food and wine tasting to be followed by a silent and live auction.
Founded in 1949, Arc of Westchester is the oldest and largest agency in Westchester County serving children and adults who have developmental disabilities and their families. For more information, visit www.westchesterarc.org.
