Cook Restaurant Kicks Off Month-Long Fundraiser for Boston Children’s Hospital with Ben and Tonya Mezrich

Cook for Charity


Cook, the award-winning restaurant located in Newton, MA is kicking off its annual month-long holiday fundraiser for Boston Children’s Hospital with a special “Cook for Charity” event featuring New York Times best-selling author Ben Mezrich and fashion designer Tonya Mezrich. On Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 from 6:00PM – 8:00PM the husband and wife duo will roll up their sleeves and get cooking with Executive Chef/Owner Paul Turano where they’ll be serving up flatbreads for the nonprofit all evening long.

In addition to Cook’s signature menu items, the restaurant will be serving “The Mezrich” special, a Hawaiian flatbread with house smoked ham, bacon, pineapple, tomato sauce and mozzarella designed by The Mezrichs themselves. 100% of sales from each $15 “The Mezrich” flatbread will be donated to the Patient and Family Resource Room, a program that helps provide services to families whose children are being treated at Boston Children’s Hospital Oncology and Hematology Center.

Ben Mezrich has authored twelve books, including the wildly successful “Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions,” which spent sixty-three weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, and sold over 2 million copies in fifteen languages. The book was adapted into the movie The Social Network –written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher – and Golden Globes for best picture, best director, best adapted screenplay, best score, and was nominated for 8 Oscars, winning 3 including best Adapted Screenplay. Ben will have signed copies of his latest book,“SEVEN WONDERS,” available for purchase the evening of the event.

Tonya Mezrich is co-fashion designer for mike&ton, jewelry designer for her own label Jewel Design By Tonya and NECN‘s fashion expert. The Mezrichs have two small children and are regular supporters of Boston Children’s Hospital to which the event will help raise money and awareness.
