Shelters get fancy food thanks to Sandy
NEW YORK (AP) - November 7, 2012 (WPVI) -- You might not expect to see beef bourguignon on the menu at a shelter.
But folks displaced by Superstorm Sandy got to enjoy some gourmet grub yesterday.
The food was supposed to have been served at the New York Public Library's black-tie fundraiser.
But the gala was canceled in the wake of the massive storm.
So, the fancy vittles for about 600 people went to three shelters on hard-hit Staten Island.
Tickets for canceled gala went for $2,500.
Library officials say they haven't gotten requests for refunds.
