Kids, alongside chefs, served a “Recipe for a CURE Sunday Brunch”
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Local children diagnosed with cancer and sickle cell anemia teamed up with professional chefs to serve brunch at the 11th annual “Recipe for a CURE Sunday Brunch.” It is the largest fundraiser for C.U.R.E. Childhood Cancer Association, a Rochester-based nonprofit founded by parents who lost children to cancer.
During this year’s beach-themed event, C.U.R.E. kids paired with chefs from the American Culinary Federation/Rochester’s Professional Chefs and Cooks Association to learn culinary skills and cook a full brunch for more than 400 attendees.
In 2018, 65 children in the Rochester area were diagnosed with cancer or chronic blood disorder, and were supported by C.U.R.E. in some way, in addition to families that were already receiving services and support from the organization.
