MOUNT KISCO. N.Y. --The Seventh Annual "Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening" fundraiser will be held Saturday to raise money for the Mt. Kisco Child Care Center.
The money raised will go towards the care center, a non-profit facility that caters to roughly 160 kids in its full-time and part-time care. Keri Reitman, the director of development, said the center is vital for members of the community who use it
Sixty percent of kids in our program receive scholarship, which means the cost of childcare is such that, said Reitman. Pending upon what the income levels are, those families cant afford it. But they need it desperately.
The scholarship number, said Reitman, is the highest percentage in the centers history.
"The need to raise funds for the center is the highest its ever been, she said. Its not just another benefit under a tent. This is about children, children who come from low income families to those who have means. And we have the full spectrum here.
Along with benefiting the Mount Kisco Child Care Center, the event will also be in honor of Leslie Lampert, owner of Ladle of Love and Café of Love, and Larry and Marian Cross, the owners and farmers of Amawalk Farm. They are being recognized for providing healthy food and educational opportunities for the community.
The fundraiser will be held Saturday at 6:30 PM at Ivanna Farms in Bedford Corners.
