Anna’s Angels Foundation friend and supporter Lysa Stylski had always wanted to combine her love of cooking and entertaining to create a cookbook.

Stylski said her secret is not so much the recipe, but the cook. “You have to put a little love into it,” she said.

This year, however, the generous crowd, donors and the addition of a tennis tournament earlier in the day helped the organization raise $80,000 for Down syndrome and leukemia research — double what was raised last year.
