Michele Ahouse, our nourishing Boston Marathon runner,
has broken all records and
raised over $7,000 for Community Cooks,
exceeding her original $5,000 goal.
Thank you Michele, for providing invaluable support for CC’s programs and inspiring us all! Thanks also to everyone who has given to her run — and to those who came out to Aeronaut last week for fun and fundraising.
Want to cheer Michele on in person at the race on April 20? Contact us to join our squad!

MARCH / APRIL 2015
GALA Going Strong!
The party has started! Thanks to generous sponsors and donors, our Virtual Ballroom is rapidly filling up. Dedicated Board members, Cooks and friends have been assembling their own special tables. These include a Founding Cooks Table (Cooks from our early 1990 years), one each for Cambridge and Somerville Elected Officials and a Private Party Room in honor of our Partner Agencies sponsored by loyal and caring supporters.
To see what’s cooking, check out our
newly uploaded Gala webpages!
