In 2013, we learned about Part of the Solution (POTS), a non-profit in the Bronx and a mainstay in the community which provides emergency food, social services, and legal representation to low-income families and individuals. In an interview with Executive Director Chris Bean, we learned how POTS got its start and also attended Harvest Dine-Around where we tasted delicious food from country clubs throughout Westchester County.
This year, we’re excited to attend Harvest Dine-Around again on Tuesday, November 10. Hosted by the Club Chefs of Westchester and taking place at the Hampshire Country Club, the event will feature this season’s specialty dishes, delicious wines, and scrumptious desserts. All proceeds will go towards programs and services at POTS.
In addition, this year the event will honor baseball great, restaurateur, and humanitarian Rusty Staub. Following his retirement from the Major League, Staub joined the Mets’ broadcasting team for 10 years. He established the New York Police and Fire Widow’s and Children’s Benefit Fund Foundation, Inc. in 1986 and serves as Chairman Emeritus. The Foundation has raised over $150 million for families of policemen, firefighters, emergency service, and port authority officers killed in the line of duty.
Staub is also the president of The Rusty Staub Foundation, Inc., which has raised over $17 million. In collaboration with Catholic Charities, the Foundation supports emergency pantries that serve more than 800,000 meals per year.
“On behalf of the staff and clients at POTS, we are so thankful to have the Club Chefs of Westchester, Baldor Specialty Foods, and Hampshire Country Club support our community. We depend on events like this so we can continue to help many of the 1.5 million New Yorkers living with food insecurity put food on the table,” Christopher A. Bean, POTS Executive Director said.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at harvestdinearound.eventbrite.com or at the door the night of the Harvest Dine-Around. We hope to see you there!Harvest Dine-Around Tuesday, November 12 Hampshire Country Club 1025 Cove Road Mamaroneck, NY 10543
