Gina DePalma lent her creative genius to Babbo for over a decade. As many of you know, she has been battling ovarian cancer for five years. Late last year, Gina left her post as Pastry Chef to focus on maintaining her health.
This week we hosted Gina’s Night, an incredibly successful event at OTTO, to thank Gina for her remarkable contribution to Babbo as well as to raise funds to help mitigate the expense of her battle with illness.
A special thank you to all of the leading NYC pastry chefs who graciously donated their beautiful works of art to our silent auction cake sale. Also a big thank you to Fishs Eddy for donating their one of a kind cake stands.
Lastly, thank you to everyone who came out to support our beloved lady of the evening. Whether at the event or on social media, your donations and overwhelming support have ensured that Gina feels the love always.
