Boston Bites Back with tasty One Fund benefit

It was an orgy of food at Fenway Park Wednesday as some of the finest chefs from Boston and beyond gathered for a one-of-a-kind benefit for the One Fund. The event, which was dubbed Boston Bites Back by organizers Ken Oringer and Ming Tsai, was certainly the tastiest fund-raiser yet for the victims of the Marathon bombings. Guests paid between $100 and $1,000 to get in the door, where dozens of chefs were cooking and serving from behind concession stands and at tables set up throughout the ballpark.

Familiar faces in the crowd included Mayor Tom Menino, Police Commissioner Ed Davis, Fire Commissioner Roderick Fraser, comedian Lenny Clarke, “Person of Interest” costar Kevin Chapman, Stacey Lucchino, former Patriots Matt Light and Steve DeOssie, Boston spa magnate Gretta Mona­han, car king Herb Chambers, Big Night Entertainment’s Ed Kane, Back Bay realtor Beth Dickerson, “Footloose” actor Kenny Wormald, actor-rapper Slaine, developer Arthur Winn, State Room owner Jim Apteker, Union Oyster House owner Joe Milano, and former politico Marjorie Clapprood.
