DARIEN, Conn. -- CNBC Anchor Larry Kudlow will be the keynote speaker at the New Covenant House of Hospitality's Celebrity Breakfast Fundraiser in April in Darien.
The 10th annual event is set for 7:30 a.m. April 22 at Woodway Country Club in Darien. New Covenant House of Hospitality is a soup kitchen that serves lower Fairfield County. Funds raised during the breakfast fundraiser will support the efforts of the Stamford-based soup kitchen, which serves all of lower Fairfield County. Admission to the benefit is $200 per person.
Kudlow is a CNBC anchorman, nationally syndicated columnist, host of "The Larry Kudlow Show" and a contributing editor of National Review magazine. Past speakers at this event have included CBS News anchorman Scott Pelly, Indra Nooyi, chairperson and CEO of Pepsico and George Bodenheimer, executive chairman of ESPN.
“Money raised during the Celebrity Breakfast will help to feed the hungry," said Chairwoman Heide Moeller of Stamford. “By attending this breakfast, our supporters will share their generosity as well as help to raise awareness of our less fortunate neighbors here in lower Fairfield County.”
In a statement, Moeller said the depressed economy means the group will "need more help than ever."
New Covenant House of Hospitality in Stamford provides more than 700,000 meals annually through its Soup Kitchen and Pantry Program, representatives said. NCH’s After School Meal Program, conducted in partnership with The Yerwood Center and Inspirica Programs, serves 275 hot meals daily.
"For many children in the program, this may be their last hot meal of the day," a press release said.
The cost of the breakfast is $200 per seat. In addition, Corporate Sponsor Tables of 10 can be purchased at costs ranging from $3,000 to $10,000. Those who would like to attend or make a donation are asked to send checks payable to "New Covenant House Breakfast" to NCH, 90 Fairfield Ave., PO Box 10883, Stamford, CT 06902.
