They eat to fight hunger

Bruden United Way fundraise offers peek at ‘America’ By Juliette Fairley Variety Saturday’s fundraiser at the Sagaponack home of Susan Bruden not only raised coin for United Way but gave partygoers a sneak peek at the new docu “Hungry in America,” produced by Participant Media and Ryan Harrington. Julianne Moore co-hosted the evening garden party, dubbed “What’s on the Table,” with “Top Chef’s” Tom Colicchio and his wife, Lori Silverbush, who co-directed the docu with Kristi Jacobson. “Tom’s a Twitter master and he’s going to help us get the word out,” said Moore. “He has 250,000 followers, which is 200,000 more than I have!” In the backyard, chefs were stationed at booths representing five of Colicchio’s restaurants, and seen making the rounds were Christy Turlington and Edward Menicheschi of Vanity Fair, which sponsored the event. http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118041672
