“For my charity, I have picked the Wind River Foundation. Donations go to the Wind River Reservation just north of Jackson, here in Wyoming.
I have chosen this charity because the growth and preservation of Native American culture are of great importance to me, and close to my heart. These donations are the absolute least we can do, but recognizing the need for our attention and donations is a start!” – Chef Cassina
