Dear East End House Friends and Supporters:

A huge thank you to all our contributors and guests for making the 10th anniversary of Cooking for a Cause a tremendous success! More than 600 guests enjoyed delicious food from some of the best chefs in the area and sipped wonderfully creative cocktails and magnificent wines and beers. The MIT Media Lab provided a beautiful new venue for the event as we brought Cooking to a Cause to our home city of Cambridge for the first time.

Thank you to our major sponsors and donors: this event, and the ongoing work of East End House, would not be possible without your generous support.

A special thank you to our esteemed chefs, bartenders, and specialty vendors. Your enthusiastic support, amazing dedication, and fabulous food and drink continue to make Cooking for a Cause a success year after year. We encourage all our friends and supporters to visit their restaurants, shops and bars and enjoy the best of Cambridge and Boston while thanking them for supporting East End House; web sites for all participants are linked to the participant list on the right and are also available at the Cooking for a Cause 2013 event page.

We also want to thank Biogen Idec and the Biogen Idec Foundation for their steadfast support. They were awarded the Outstanding Community Partner Award at the event in recognition of many years of exemplary leadership in sparking positive change in the lives of countless children, families and individuals.

Lastly, we want to extend a special thank you to the MIT Police who were present at the event. In the wake of our city's recent bombing tragedy and its direct impact on the MIT Police, we are reminded how grateful we are for their dedication and express our deepest condolences for their loss.

Thank you again to all those who worked tirelessly and gave generously to make this event possible. Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
