At the Chefs for Kids’ Cancer event in NYC in February, two dedicated Cookies for Kids’ Cancer supporters – Joel and Robin Globus – generously donated a week-long Carribbean getaway to their vacation home in Anguilla. The home, Tequila Sunrise Villa, is a little slice of paradise that comes complete with sweeping views of the bay, an infinity pool, and the cutest STUFFED billy goat mascot you’ve ever seen.
The winners of the week bought it in support of childhood cancer research and then booked their week in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary. The highlight of their trip was having meals specifically prepared each night in the kitchen at Tequila Sunrise Villa by notable chefs. NYC Chefs Marc Forgione, owner and executive chef of Restaurant Marc Forgione, American Cut, and Keh-Yo, and Alfred Portale, owner and executive chef of Gotham Bar & Grill, both flew to Anguilla to prepare dinners for the Simpsons. Three of the top restaurants in Anguilla generously volunteered their chefs for the remaining nights – Marc Alvarez of Straw Hat Restaurant, Carrie Bogar of Veya Restaurant, and Dale Carty of Tasty’s Restaurant jumped at the chance to support this worthy cause. The Good Cookies at CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa generously donated rooms and services for the visiting chefs.
Nori Evoy and her staff at Anguilla-Beaches.com were on hand taking photos each night and capturing the once-in-a-lifetime moments for the Simpson family. She has written a blog about the experiences each night. Click here to read more about these amazing Good Cookies!
