Fundraiser to honor Beverely & Sabin Streeter and Fran & Maarten Steenman, benefit MKCCC’s need-based scholarship program
Mount Kisco, NY – (September 18, 2015) – Mount Kisco Child Care Center (MKCCC) will host its 11th Annual Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening event on Saturday, September 26, 2015 beginning at 6:00pm. The signature annual fundraiser will once again be hosted by Eric Hadar at Ivanna Farms in Bedford Corners, NY. Honorary Co-Chairs are Twink and Jim Wood and Sara Weale and John Rudge. Kelly Sullivan, of Quaker Hill Tavern in Chappaqua, is the returning Event Chair.
The 11th Annual event will celebrate the long-time dedication of two MKCCC board and advisory board members, Beverley and Sabin Streeter. They have alternated service on the Board of Mount Kisco Child Care Center since 1992. They have supported and volunteered in many other community programs including the Chappaqua Summer Scholarship Program, the Horace Greeley Education Fund, and Blythedale. They share a special interest in education and the welfare of children. Sabin was instrumental in establishing the Peartree Preschool in Harlem. We also look forward to honoring our friends, neighbors and supporters, Fran and Maarten Steenman, owners of La Tulipe Desserts in Mt. Kisco. The Steenmans have been loyal friends to MKCCC for more than 15 years and have been participants in all 11 of our “Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening” annual events.
Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening showcases delicious food from local restaurants that subscribe to the same culinary philosophy as MKCCC – serving locally grown organic food and supporting local agriculture.

Featured restaurants at the event include: Bellizzi; Café of Love & Ladle of Love; Chappaqua LOCAL; Crabtree’s Kittle House; Cortlandt Colonial; Frannie’s Goodie Shop; La Tulipe Desserts; Le Jardin du Roi; Ben & Jerry’s Mt.
