* And most importantly, there were the numbers. The event raised an astounding $1.4 million, which can provide up to 7 million meals for hungry New Yorkers. A good portion of that money came from the live auction, which brought in $250,000, including a dinner cooked by Mario, Tom Colicchio and David Chang, which went for $100,000 and was labeled “The Three Tenors.” Although, hopefully none of them will sing at the dinner.
