We are all part of a community and volunteering time or money or resources is always a wonderful way to make a difference in the world. I have been lucky enough to have participated in so many amazing organizations over the years.
Due to my personal involvement with ovarian cancer and MS, I definitely like to support the following organizations:
In addition, I have spent many years hosting events for the March of Dimes, Staten Island branch. So many advances in health care for premature babies and their families have occurred thanks to the money raised by this charitable organization.
And I host an annual event for World Cares Organization/September Space, an organization that provides disaster preparedness and long term recovery efforts. Each November, September Space has an annual Iron Chef cook-off between professional chefs and cooks from New York firehouses.
