On Monday, April 8, 2019 at The Crescent Beach Club in Bayville, NY, we honored Jeanine DiMenna, Executive Chef of The View Grill in Glen Cove, NY, at our annual Cooking for a Cure event. Chef DiMenna, a longtime friend of the Diabetes Research Institute and Foundation, has hosted this intimate event at her restaurant since 2004.

Over 200 guests enjoyed an evening of dinner, dancing, a fabulous assortment of prizes and exciting grand prize drawings and a special chef demonstration by Chef Bryan Naylor, creator of Birch Hill Brands, and Executive Chef of Birch Hill, Inc. The evening was a great success, raising more than $60,000 for the cure-focused work of the Diabetes Research Institute.

Warmest thanks to our co-chairs and wonderful committee, lead sponsors Roberta & Bruce Waller and The Peter and Jeri DeJana Foundartion; our gift-in-kind donors, and to all of the wonderful event partners and supporters who made the evening enjoyable and memorable.
