Parties
Greenwich, CT

Over 250 guests attended the first annual Change the Future: Celebrating the Harvest event on November 12, 2013 at the Greenwich Country Club. The event, which supported the CT American Diabetes Association and included Celebrity Chef Jacques Pepin, featured Executive Chefs who came together to “Celebrate the Harvest” and prepare an elegant and delicious five course meal. The meal showcased a farm to table experience with all locally sourced ingredients. The featured Chefs: Keith Armstrong, Frederic Kieffer, Pietro Scotti, Bill Taibe, and Edward Varipapa all generously donated their time and ingredients to the event. The meal was paired with fine wines from Chamard Vineyards.

The event honored individuals who have had a large impact in the fight against diabetes. This year’s “STOP Diabetes Heroes” Awards went to long time ADA Volunteers, Pete and Linda Cummin of Greenwich, and Chef Michel Nischan, Sustainable Food Pioneer, Chef and Author of Fairfield.

The proceeds of the evening will benefit the American Diabetes Association’s mission to prevent and cure diabetes, and to improve the lives of the nearly 24 million children and adults in the United States who have diabetes. Diabetes is the fastest growing health epidemic in the United States and the world.
