OSSINING, N.Y. – The owners of Wobble Café in Ossining recently donated $10,000 to the new Westchester Children’s Museum in Rye.
Beylka Krupp and Rich Foshay, owners of the café, presented the check to museum officials on Monday in Rye.
Krupp won the first Neighborhood to Nation Recipe Contest. Her grand-prize winnings included $50,000, with the stipulation that $10,000 be given to a charity of her choice.
“I chose Westchester Children's Museum as the recipient because I think museums, especially ‘hands-on’ museums, are a great asset to any community and every family,” Krupp said in a press release.
“Hands-on museums provide families with quality time together where play and learning are combined.
“A quality museum like Westchester Children’s Museum brings tourism dollars from all over the country, which benefits the whole county.
“Its location next to Rye Playland and Rye Beach helps make a whole day of fun for tourists and people taking day trips out of New York City.”
The award-winning shrimp etouffee recipe is one of the dishes available for customers of Wobble Café.
“Our judges were wowed by Beylka’s mouthwatering shrimp etouffee recipe, and we were all truly inspired by her tireless commitment to her local community,” Danielle Benson, associate channel manager for General Mills Foodservice, said in a press release.
The Westchester Children’s Museum’s new location in the historic Rye Playland Boathouses is scheduled to open in May, and the donation will benefit that effort.
