The American Cancer Society hosted its first ever Taste of Hope Comes to Broadway sponsored by Wells Fargo on Monday, July 24th at 318 West 47th Street, a new condominium by Halsted Property Development Marketing. The evening was a salute to Broadway and raised much needed funds for the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge NYC. Guests sipped on summer wines and enjoyed delicious tastes provided by Chef Michael Ferraro from Delicatessen and Chef Julian Medina from Toloache.

Special guests who supported the evening include: Jean Shafiroff (a past honoree of the American Cancer Society’s Taste of Hope), Brenda Vaccaro, Lawrence O’Donnell, Richard Kind, Derek Klena, Clarke Thorell, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, and Geneva Carr and other members of the Taste of Hope committee.

Attendees also had the opportunity to win some great raffle prizes such as tickets to

Jesus Hopped The “A” Train and Chef’s Table for four with wine pairing from Le Bernardin.

Tickets were $50 each and doors opened at 6:30pm. Tickets were made available at
