Feed Me Fresh to Honor Kisco Community Leaders

This years honorees are Curtis Beusman, and Isi and Frances Albanese.

The founders of some of Mount Kisco's most prominent businesses will be honored Saturday at Mount Kisco Child Care Center's annual Feed Me Fresh gala.

The trio are: Curtis Beusman, founder of Curtis Instruments and Saw Mill Club, and Frances and Isi Albanese, who are best known for Bellizzi and Frannie's Goodie Shop.

Beusman, who's had several stints on the MKCCC board since 2000, described being honored as "truly exciting."

Of MKCCC, Beusman said, "It's a great organization and it's driven by a real sense of community on the board."

Beusman was also a fundraising chairman for MKCCC.

"We're just thrilled to be honored," Frances Albanese said. She also described MKCCC as being "all about family."

Support for MKCCC over the years has included donations, Isi Albanese explained. He said that he and his wife are proud to be part of the community and to help as much as they can.

The night will have a special emcee: actor and Katonah resident John Bedford Lloyd, whose biography includes films such as Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and The Bourne Supremacy.

"He's got some real credits," Beusman said.

The gala, which is the center's eighth annual, starts Saturday night, 7 p.m., at Ivanna Farms in Bedford.
