Last night, on Tuesday, January 5, 2016, the season premiere of Food Network’s hit show, “Chopped,” aired with the title, “Knife Strife.” Four talented chefs competed in the hour-long segment and chef Raffaele Ronca of Rafele Ristorante in New York City emerged as the winner.

Ronca, who was competing for the children of the St. Elizabeth Seton Children’s Foundation, donated his $10,000 prize to the Foundation. Ronca holds a special place in his heart for the children served by the Foundation who have complex medical, educational and rehabilitative needs. Ronca’s generous contribution will help better the lives of these very special children.

The John Coleman School, Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center, and Children’s Rehabilitation Center are sponsored ministries of the Sisters of Charity of New York.
