Helping the Children in a Beautiful Setting...

Last night I went to a lovely charity event benefitting the Child Abuse Prevention Center of NY at the Kittle House in Chappaqua.  The Child Abuse Prevention Center is a not-for-profit organization whose aim is to reduce child abuse and neglect in Westchester County.

The Kittle House is a charming inn and restaurant, built in 1790, that serves amazing food and has one of the best, if not the best, wine lists in the COUNTRY!  Owner John Crabtree is a local resident who has been honored multiple times for his numerous contributions to the community.  The event was held outdoors in Amy's Garden, a garden in memory of John's wife who passed away in November, 2009 after a valiant battle with brain cancer.

Tasty still and sparkling wines were flowing and a special savory menu was presented.  30% of the proceeds of the evening went to the Center.  It was a delightful night with old friends and new supporting a very worthwhile cause.
