A note from Chef George Mendes:
After completing two half marathons over the past few months, this November 6 I’ll be participating in my first full race: The TCS New York City Marathon. It was important to me to use this as an opportunity to give back what running has afforded me, which is why I’ll be running with Team for Kids. Team for Kids is a team of adult runners who raise funds for critical services provided by the New York Road Runners’ Youth Programs. These programs combat childhood obesity, and empower youth development via running and character-building programs across the country.
I’m asking for your support of their inspiring mission by helping me to reach my fundraising goal. Anyone who donates will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win:
First Prize – A five-course dinner for two at the Chef’s Counter at Aldea Restaurant. Chef Mendes and his team will personally cook a one-of-a-kind, off-menu tasting for the winner and a guest that evening
Second Prize – A special three-course dinner for two at Lupulo, personally cooked by Chef Mendes and his team
