Join Chef Marcus Samuelsson, owner of Red Rooster Harlem and Food Republic co-founder, to support the victims of the tragic explosion and building collapse in East Harlem last week. Next Wednesday, April 2nd, Samuelsson, along with fellow chefs and friends Amanda Freitag, Aaron Sanchez and Jonathan Waxman will host an evening of food, cocktails and live auctions for hotel, restaurant and shopping packages donated from eateries and friends throughout NYC.

"Our incredible volunteers, employees and community partners are all “Everyday Heroes” who have demonstrated a tireless dedication to help those affected by this tragedy. During this time, we’ve seen the community at its best, pulling together to help our neighbors in need," said a spokesperson for the fund.
