Mowat-Wilson Syndrome Foundation Awarded $10K, Food Network Chopped, Grand Holiday Prize


The Mowat-Wilson Syndrome Foundation was the grand winner on Food Network’s Chopped on its Grand Holiday episode aired on December 5th, 2017. Chef Adam Greenberg, a three-time winner on Chopped, won the battle over three other undefeated competitors. What a great show! Adam chose the MWS Foundation to receive the $10,000 grand prize.

Adam’s sister, Katie Fineberg, is a director of the MWS Foundation and mother of Zoe.


“Zoe is very special to me. She is one of four nieces and a nephew on this side of my family. Although Zoe has Mowat-Wilson Syndrome, she and I have a strong connection. I am inspired by her ability to love, laugh, and express how she feels with me. I’ve always spoken to Zoe as if she is just like everyone else I speak to, and she always knows how to get what she wants. As a family, we all wanted to learn about Zoe and understand what was ahead, and I think what we’ve all gotten back in return is far more valuable than anything we could have imagined. She is pure love.”

We want to congratulate Chef Adam for winning such an amazing challenge and thank him for choosing the MWS Foundation.
