I wanted to tell you about an ongoing benefit auction and upcoming event that is being organized by myself, Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich and Jim Lahey.

My name is Gina DePalma, and I am the Pastry Chef of Babbo. (I just won the Beard award last week after seven nominations!)

I have ovarian cancer, and my fondest desire is to find a cure – duh. So I am starting a foundation to raise funds and awareness of this form of cancer, which places all women at risk but could use a little PR help in getting the word out!

So, my bosses Mario and Joe and my dear friend Jim Lahey of Co. and Sullivan Street are throwing a benefit for my cause, next week.

Any help you can give me to spread the word, I would appreciate so much!
