Mike Feist hosted a brunch in Briarcliff Manor honoring the Briarcliff Manor Fire Department as part of his work towards his Eagle Scout badge. The event, attended by approximately 60 fire and EMS personnel and guests (including Assemblywoman Sandra Galef, Superintendent of Briarcliff Schools James Kaishian, and Scoutmaster Dr. Robert Goldstein), was widely supported by Briarcliff community merchants and regional businesses, with more than 50 donations received for the event.
Mike, a senior at Briarcliff High School, will be attending the Napa Valley campus of The Culinary Institute of America this fall. As a culinary student and occasional Inside Chappaqua food stylist/photographer, Mike chose the project because it combined his interests while also honoring the service of those who selflessly act to keep our community safe. The event provided a wonderful meal for all–and a terrific way to say thank you to the BMFD volunteers.
