Chefs serve fine food, wine at Fenway Park to raise money for Boston Marathon bombing victims

BOSTON – Dozens of top chefs have set up operations behind Fenway Park concession stands offering fine food and drinks in a project intended to raise money for Boston Marathon bombing victims.

Emergency workers, bombing victims and government officials turned out Wednesday for the Boston Bites Back event. They’ve dined on seared duck breast, oysters, spring seafood salad, hot dogs and pastrami sandwiches.

The project seeks to raise $1 million for One Fund Boston, a charity set up to help the bombing victims.

Five thousand tickets were available at $200 each, entitling people to eat and drink as much as they wished. An online auction featured dining experiences from top chefs and shopping with a fashion expert.

Bombing victim Lee Ann Yanni says it “means a lot” to her that people are willing to help the victims “get back to normal life.”
