“When food pantries and soup kitchens have lost resources and are struggling to meet the need, Celebrity Dinner Series events help. We make it easier for family’s in need to keep food on the table,” said, Victoria Wells, the Events Organizer for the Dining Engagement Group.
The event also included a retrospective couture fashion show produced by NYC Fashion Runway and featuring designs by Berit. “Bringing the hottest talent to our table together makes these events a one of a kind experience while engaging hunger with a unique entertaining twist,” said Davina Reichman Schuck, Managing Director of NYC Fashion Runway.
The event also included appearances by Jaclyn Schwartz and Rachel Truehart of The Bachelor, and American Olympic boxer Eric Kelly.
Lucky attendees were also treated to a wonderful performance by the renowned jazz ensemble, the Angelo De Loreti Quintet.
“Top Chefs and friends, celebrity dinner parties…this is where food, fashion and entertainment collide,” said Nirschel. “Sunday dinner has never been better. We’re breaking traditions one city at a time.”
