American Diabetes team in Greenwich raises more than $165,000

On Nov. 15, the American Diabetes Association presented their inaugural “Change the Future” chef event. Master Chefs prepared a unique and interactive multi-media culinary experience through a live video feed from the kitchen to the ballroom. Guests experienced a cooking adventure at the Greenwich Country Club.

Co-chairs Shelly Tretter Lynch, James Parker and Taylor Kearns welcomed more than 240 guests to a five-course dinner paired with wines specially selected by Val’s Putnam Wines & Liquor. All of it was guided by Emcee Victor Rallo, host of Eat! Drink! Italy!, Master Chefs Chef Rui Correia of Douro Restaurant, Chef Frederic Kieffer of l’escale, Chefs Lisa and Stephen Maronian of Sweet Lisa’s, Chef Conor Horton of The J House, Chef Edward Varipapa of Leon’s Restaurant, and Chef Marc Weber, of On the Marc.

More than $165,000 was raised at the event and more than $550,000 raised to date to support Camp Carefree, which serves more than 5,300 children with diabetes, research and wellness education.

The American Diabetes Association funds more than $14.5 million research dollars in the fight against diabetes in New England, along with their campaigns to raise awareness and educate those affected by the disease. More than 29 million Americans have diabetes, 350,000 in Connecticut and 60,000 here in Fairfield County.
