Mt Kisco, NY – (September 14, 2018) – Mount Kisco Child Care Center (MKCCC) will host its 14th Annual Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening event on Saturday, September 22, 2018 beginning at 5:30pm. All money raised will benefit MKCCC’s need-based scholarship program. In its 47th year, MKCCC’s Scholarship Initiative, which is a combination of government subsidy, private, family and corporate foundation support, corporate and individual donations, and proceeds from special events, enables MKCCC to fulfill its mission of providing children with access to affordable, safe, high-quality early care and education.
This year, MKCCC is delighted to be honoring board member and dear friend, Doris Seidlitz. Since moving to Pound Ridge in 1971, Doris has dedicated her time to many local causes, including the Katonah Museum of Art, Caramoor, and the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. Mount Kisco Child Care Center has been Doris’ major volunteer interest for much of the past 10 years. Since 1977, Doris has enjoyed an active career in local real estate. The Center is also very happy to honor the Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce. Today and since its founding in 1965, the Chamber cultivates the unique relationship between commerce and community in our vibrant town. Additionally, MKCCC is pleased to recognize the many contributions of one of its Founding Members, Martha Nierenberg. MKCCC opened its doors in 1971 with just a handful of children and a very small staff in rented basement space in the United Methodist Church of Mount Kisco. Martha was there at the beginning and served as MKCCC Board Treasurer for the first 15 years. The Center’s current home on Radio Circle would not have been possible without the incredible generosity of the Nierenbergs. Martha has always been an active leader and volunteer in the Northern Westchester Community. She has served on numerous boards, including Westchester Community College, Visiting Nurse Association of Hudson Valley and Northern Westchester Hospital, to name a few.
Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening showcases delicious food from local restaurants that subscribe to the same culinary philosophy as MKCCC – serving locally grown and sourced food and supporting local agriculture. Through our very own Feed Me Fresh seed-to-table nutrition program, MKCCC has created a hands-on curriculum that builds a natural appreciation for fresh, whole food. Event guests will enjoy live music from renowned local band ‘The Shaves’, an open bar, fabulous live & silent auctions, and a ‘Raise the Paddle’ opportunity.
The event’s Orchard Sponsor for 2018 is Eric Hadar. Additional major sponsors, to date, include Curtis Instruments, Lincoln Mount Kisco, Nancy & Ken Stein, Lisa & John Bart, The Benefit Shop Foundation, Blakely & Marty Brodbeck, Daniele Churchill, Rebecca & Arthur Samberg, Beverley & Sabin Streeter, Toshiko & Joseph Tompkins, Twink & Jim Wood, Rebecca & Jeff Cerutti, Lisa & Tom Cohn, Becki & Ari Fleischer, Houlihan Lawrence Bedford/Pound Ridge Brokerage, Fran Osborne, Jessica & Adam Reinmann, Keira & Tim Treanor, Atlantic Westchester, Tom Coleman & Sarah Fashena, Muffin & James Dowdle, Nicole & Stuart Kovensky, Leigh & Geoffrey Pack, Roberta & Andrew Schwarz, and Kelly & Mike Slomsky.
