Anne Saxelby, the downtown cheesemonger and promoter of American cheeses who died last year, has been remembered with a fund that offers monthlong paid apprenticeships for young adults to live on sustainable farms. Next month, that organization, the Anne Saxelby Legacy Fund, will host a fund-raiser at the Chelsea Market, featuring 60 of Ms. Saxelby’s favorite chefs, such as Riad Nasr and Lee Hanson of Frenchette, Michael Anthony of Gramercy Tavern, Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi of Carbone, Lena Ciardullo of Union Square Cafe and Max Ng of Momofuku. Ms. Saxelby, who opened Saxelby Cheesemongers in 2006 and later another store in the Chelsea Market, died in October of a heart condition. She was 40.
Anne Saxelby Legacy Fund Benefit; Sept. 14 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Chelsea Market, 75 Ninth Avenue; Tickets, $100 and up, are available on Eventbrite (search “Saxelby”).
