One organization is cooking up something different to help young children with cancer.
The Future Chef’s Cook Off heated up for the first time in Stamford on June 8. The event is sponsored by Go 4 the Goal, a non-profit organization that strives to cure pediatric cancer.
Funds raised at the cook off will benefit local children such as Eli Schwartz, who is battling leukemia.
The cook off raised more than $15,000 to support pediatric cancer patients. Well-known Chef Hunter Zampa hosted the event and celebrity chefs Aaron Sanchez and Missy Chase Lapine also supported the cause.
Money will also be donated to provide technology to Yale-New Haven’s pediatric oncology waiting room, infusion room and transplant unit.
