Once again the Connecticut Chapter of the American Liver Foundation, located in North Haven, has outdone itself in this year’s “Flavors” event. Thirty-five chefs from all over the state came to the Aqua Turf recently to share their culinary talents, preparing a festive and gala meal for a table of twelve, five courses with wine pairings.
Setting a table with china and linens, the chefs gave their finest menu, cooking at their table, and serving each course personally, often with commentary. In addition to the delicious dinners, a silent and live auction were held as well as a special liver research funding opportunity.
Kudos to chapter coordinator Joanne Thompson and her staff and co-chairs Dr. and Mrs. Robert Leventhal for an outstanding evening of fun and funds, raising over $200,000 to find the answers to the more than 100 liver diseases that are currently labeled “no known cause and no known cure.” For further information, contact the chapter at 203-234-2022, 127 Washington Avenue, North Haven, CT 06473.
