A charitable week

Just a quick post and shout out to a few organizations I adore-

I normally like to go home after a long day of taping and throw on my jammies, but last week I had the pleasure of going to two events that I look forward to all year. Both The Food Bank and City Harvest held fundraisers, which I was proud to attend as both of these organizations are partners of mine through Yum-o! One of our key missions at Yum-o! is to help fight hunger in American families, which both of these groups do exceedingly well through their brilliant programs.

The Food Bank Can Do Awards, hosted this year by Stanley Tucci and chaired by Michael Stipe (from REM), Mario Batali and his wife Susie Cahn. Here I am hanging with John and my pal Rocco DiSpirito, who I am hoping you will see soon on our site. How stuff, right?

Then on Wednesday night, I was an honoree at the City Harvest benefit (see above for a shot of me with the drivers, they were honored too). Rob Thomas gave us a private concert, which was amazing, especially when he sang one of my old favorties, Where or When.   There wasn’t a dry eye in the house that night.  You can learn more about City Harvest and all they are doing here.
