Murphy Brothers

Greenwich residents Christopher and Sean Murphy, owners of Murphy Brothers Contracting, will prove they have “good taste” this fall by serving as co-chairs of the Food Bank for Westchester’s 23rd annual An Evening in Good Taste event.

The Food Bank for Westchester is the county’s emergency food distribution network which provides 95% of food to those who are hungry or at risk of being hungry. With the goal of ending childhood hunger in Westchester County, the organization’s signature event features food from 30 local restaurants, assistance from 100 volunteers and attracts 600 to 700 guests each year.

“We are thrilled that Chris and Sean Murphy are lending us their time and energy to co-chair An Evening in Good Taste, which is one of our highest-attendance events each year,” said Ellen Lynch, executive director of the Food Bank for Westchester. “Chris and Sean are a dynamic team and are dedicated to raising awareness and dollars for this cause. We know that with them involved, the event will be even more successful than ever before.”

Ms. Lynch noted that one in five residents of the county is hungry or at-risk of being hungry; of those almost 200,000 people, one-third are children.

The Murphy brothers are co-owners and operators of Mamaroneck-based Murphy Brothers Contracting, Inc., one of Westchester’s leading contracting companies. The company is a model in both the business and philanthropy communities, having worked in collaboration with diverse groups such as the Greenwich Riding Trail Association, Habitat for Humanity and Furniture Sharehouse.

“As long-time members of the business community here, we believe in giving back to our neighbors. We were shocked to find out how widespread hunger has become in Westchester, one of the wealthiest counties in the country,” said Christopher Murphy, president and construction director of Murphy Brothers Contracting. “We are committed to helping the Food Bank for Westchester raise awareness of this issue and look forward to a successful event.”

An Evening of Good Taste will take place Thursday, Oct. 17 at 1133 Westchester Avenue in White Plains, N.Y. The event features food stations by many of Westchester’s finest chefs, who donate their product, time and talent to make it a delicious evening.

Tickets are $200 per person and sponsorships are available. For information, call Katy Coppinger at 914-923-1100 or visit
