PHILANTHROPY – a.k.a. “Giving Back”

I have been very blessed in my life and believe in giving back and helping others. Women's health, mental health and substance abuse disorders are topics that I’m passionate about.


Since 2015, I have been involved with SHARE as a celebrity chef for fundraising events and by making a donation to SHARE from each bottle of my olive oil.  


Join me this year at the 2019 A Second Helping of Life tasting event at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers in NYC.  I will be a celebrity sous chef working with NYC's TOP FEMALE Chefs! www.sharecancersupport.org


On November 6, 2019, I'll be appearing as the headliner celebrity chef at the annual Taste of Hope Gala in New York to benefit the CN Guidance Counseling Center. www.tasteofhopegala.com
