Good food, good company, good cause

NEWTON/WELLESLEY

A dinner with celebrity chef Ming Tsai, public radio host Robin Young, or Nobel-Prize winning MIT geneticist Phillip Sharp – how good is that?

The Second Step, a Newton-based program for survivors of domestic violence, is sponsoring gourmet dinners with a celebrity in 22 private homes, most in Newton, but also one each in Wellesley, Brookline, and Boston.

The Nov. 4 benefit, called Step Up to the Plate, will also feature Vivien Li, executive director of the Boston Harbor Association, legendary Boston restaurateur Michela Larson, and Sam Adams beer CEO Jim Koch. Last year’s event raised $130,000.

For a complete list of dinner parties, visit www.thesecondstep.org. Event tickets are $150. To purchase tickets, call 617-965-2026.
