A 55-year resident of Mount Kisco, Curtis Beusman is actively involved in the community. In addition to founding Curtis Instruments, Inc. and the Saw Mill Club — two mainstays in Mount Kisco — Curtis served on the Chappaqua School Board for five years. Since 2002, he has served on MKCCC’s Board of Directors. He has provided continuous support through generous contributions to the Center.
“We are so thankful to Frances, Isidoro, and Curtis for their support over the years,” said Dottie Jordan, Executive Director, MKCCC. “Feed Me Fresh is an event we look forward to each year and we are delighted to share the opportunity to recognize these admirable friends of the Center.”
Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening, MKCCC’s largest fundraising event, will be held in a circus- sized tent and will feature tastings from a number of the best restaurants and farms in the area.
