THE CARTER BURDEN CENTER FOR THE AGING’S
 44th ANNIVERSARY GALA Overcoming Food Insecurity

 

On November 16, 2015, The Carter Burden Center for the Aging hosted its 44th Anniversary Gala, Overcoming Food Insecurity.  Jeffrey A. Bersh, Co-Founder and Co-Chief Investment Officer, Venor Capital Management, received the 2015 Business Leadership Award, and Filmmaker Lori Silverbush and Tom Colicchio, Chef and Food Policy Advocate, received the 2015 Humanitarian Award.  The Gala Co-Chairs were Jon Harris and Ted Seides, and the Vice Chairs were Susan Burden and William Goldman, Mr. and Mrs. A.J.C. Smith, and Stacey Gillis Weber and Jeffrey A. Weber.  The event, which was held at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Manhattan, welcomed 300 guests and raised over $765,608 for the nonprofit organization.

Jeffrey A. Bersh is a Co-Chief Investment Officer of Venor Capital Management, sharing the responsibility of managing the Firm’s investment program and risk management.  He has over 20 years of experience in principal investing and managing fixed income trading businesses in both high yield and distressed strategies. 

Lori Silverbush is an independent director and screenwriter who uses fiction and non-fiction film to ignite dialogue about critical issues of our day. Silverbush’s film, A Place at the Table, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, examines the shocking paradox of hunger in the wealthiest nation on earth. Since its release, A Place at the Table has become the launchpad for a national movement and media campaign called “Great Nations Eat,” centered on ending hunger and reforming food policy in the United States.

Tom Colicchio was awarded his first three stars from The New York Times as executive chef of Mondrian. Since then he has seen similar acclaim for Gramercy Tavern (with Danny Meyer), his signature venture Craft (2002), and Colicchio & Sons (2010), all in New York.  Following Craft and its casual sibling, Craftbar (2003), Colicchio opened Craftsteak at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas (2002), Craft in Los Angeles (2007), Colicchio & Sons and Riverpark in New York (2010) and Heritage Steak at The Mirage in Las Vegas (2013).  Since 2006, he has been the head judge in Bravo’s reality cooking series, the Emmy-winning “Top Chef.”  He is also hosting Bravo’s “Best New Restaurant.”  In an effort to broaden his long-standing social and political activism, Tom co-founded Food Policy Action in 2012 in collaboration with national food policy leaders, in order to hold legislators accountable on votes that have an effect on food and farming.

Overcoming Food Insecurity

The Carter Burden Center for the Aging has seen firsthand the increased number of seniors dealing with food insecurity.  More and more, seniors do not have enough money to buy groceries after rent is paid and medications are purchased.  Every day, seniors at the Carter Burden Luncheon Club & Senior Program on the Upper East Side, the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Senior Program and its satellite, Lehman Village Senior Center, both in East Harlem, gather for hot meals and socialization.  Last year, Carter Burden Center staff and volunteers served 264,446 restaurant quality meals, including daily breakfast and lunch, as well as weekend brunch and home delivered meals to seniors who are homebound.

            The Carter Burden Center for the Aging, Inc. is a non-profit agency established in 1971 by the late Carter Burden when he was a New York City Councilman.  The mission is to promote the well-being of seniors, 60 and older, through a continuum of services, advocacy and volunteer programs oriented to individual, family and community needs.  The Carter Burden Center is dedicated to supporting the efforts of older people to live safely and with dignity.  For more information, please visit  www.carterburdencenter.org
