Resorts World Casino New York City announced Feb. 26 a $100,000 donation to City Harvest to fight hunger across the city, during the casino’s first annual Mid-Winter Taste event to benefit City Harvest, featuring food, wine, and cocktails from New York’s most popular eateries.

The $100,000 contribution came through Resorts World’s charitable giving program —Resorts World Gives — an organization committed to improving communities and helping those in need throughout the city.

City Harvest helps feed nearly two million New York City residents who face hunger each year by delivering food to more than 500 community programs across the five boroughs.

At the check presentation last week at Resorts World were Matthew Reich, vice president of operations at City Harvest, left, celebrity chef Ming Tsai; Miss USA Erin Brady; celebrity chefs Chris Santos and Todd English and Edward Farrell, president of Resorts World Casino New York City.

The event was also attended by celebrity chef Chris Nirsche, Olympic figure skating silver-medalist Sasha Cohen and Fox News’ Tom Murro.
