Not only did you have the chance to win fabulous items, but there were over 70 of NYC's best restaurants and chefs set up with tasting stations for booze and food. Some of the featured restaurants included Blue Hill, Craft, Landmarc, Tribeca Grill, and of course, Le Bernardin. You could see Miss USA 2011 (I didn't know pageant girls ate) walking amongst the crowd and talking to the chefs (Marc Murphy, Francois Payard, Daniel Boulud among them). The event was no doubt a smash success and an amazing opportunity for party-goers to mingle with and see the best chefs in action. Best of all? The loads of money raised goes to feed those in need. Touche, City Harvest!
City Harvest Feeds the Non-Needy to Feed the Needy

City Harvest, a non-profit that raises money to feed NYC's hungry folk, held its 17th Annual Bid Against Hunger benefit last Tuesday, October 18th. The event took place at the spacious Metropolitan Pavilion, but it was packed to the brim with Manhattan socialites who've got dough to spend. This year, the event raised over $1 mill (you go CH!)! Featuring a live and silent auction, this event had some of the best items to bid on. In the exciting live auction, some renowned prizes included a one of a kind American Chopper built by Orange County Choppers (sold for $20,000), an intimate wine class and party for 15 with wine director Aldo Sohn and Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin, which sold for $40,000. I think we can all agree...that dinner party better be good! Silent auction items included a range of goodies, including Mets tickets, chocolate baskets, dinners with Brooklynite chefs, and much more. But if you think that's all this event featured, then you are quite mistaken.
