Westchester Mothers Kindness Dinner

Benjamin Steak House, White Plains

Inspired by NBC News’s Ann Curry and her tweet suggesting people do 26 kind acts (one for each person killed in the Newtown, Connecticut, shooting), 26 Westchester mothers attended a benefit dinner and vigil at Benjamin Steak House. The event raised $5,000 for the Sandy Hook victims; Benjamin Steak House donated 26 dinners. Curry attended the vigil and covered the story for a segment that aired on Rock Center with Brian Williams.
