On Monday, November 2nd, New York’s most charitable chefs joined forces with prominent television newscasters to present The 22nd Annual Feast, a food and wine tasting extravaganza benefiting the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC).

This year’s program celebrated CHC’s acclaimed pediatric services which teach babies who are deaf and hard of hearing to hear, speak, and thrive in every way. Feast presenters included kids past and present from the children’s program, and a video – Hear the Difference – highlighted the impact CHC’s services have on the lives of families currently receiving services.
