Wine and Roses to Support the Newton Medical Center

Each year, Café Pierrot has the opportunity to be part of the Wine and Roses fundraiser for the Newton Medical Center. Many local businesses donate food, wine, and raffle prizes, and we were there with our mini cupcakes and desserts. 27 other local businesses were represented at the event.

Because of the culinary fine dining theme, the Newton Medical Center invites culinary celebrities to support them. This year, Tony Tantillo, The Fresh Grocer of CBS, and Chef Michael Colameco were present. During the VIP hour, Chef Colameco signed copies of his recent book, The Food Lover’s Guide to New York City.

In 2010, Newton Medical Center raised over $100,000 toward the renovation of the maternity department.  The Medical Center stated that this event shows the incredible community support for the local hospital. Supporters of the hospital and participants in the event hope to raise even more funds for the 2012 Capital Campaign.

The best part of the event was supporting a great cause and hearing how much our loyal customers enjoy our cupcakes. This is one of our favorite events and we look forward to participating next year!
