- ABOUT TOAST-
Started in 1995 by Children of Bellevue and Board Member Tom Colicchio, Chef/Owner of Craft Restaurants and Bravo Top Chef, Toast to the Children is Children of Bellevue’s largest fundraising event. Held annually, Toast to the Children raises funds for various children’s programs at Bellevue Hospital Center. In 2011, Toast to the Children raised over $240,000 dollars through ticket sales, journal advertisements, individual donations, and sale of silent auction items!
At Toast to the Children, guests sample signature dishes from some of New York’s finest restaurants and sip wines from around the world, as they mingle with celebrity chefs and fellow foodies. New York’s most celebrated chefs delighted guests with samples from their menus.

- ABOUT CHILDREN OF BELLEVUE -
For over 60 years, the Children of Bellevue has been dedicated to funding the development and sustainment of innovative programs that improve the health and well-being of our pediatric patients at Bellevue Hospital - America’s oldest public hospital.
Each year, more than 25,000 children and teens from all five boroughs of New York City pass through the doors of Bellevue Hospital. And while many families choose Bellevue for its exceptional medical staff and superior care standards, a great number of them come to Bellevue simply because it is a public hospital, and thanks to your support, they won't be turned away.
