Congratulations to Mario DiBiase of Aperitivo, who, along with Susanna Caliendo of Rolling Pin Productions, won the People’s Choice Award for the annual Gingerbread Extravaganza at Le Parker Meridien in Manhattan!

Their awesome gingerbread creation — a Coney Island landscape with Santa and his elves enjoying the rides — was one of several on display to raise money for City Harvest. In total, the event raised $12,000, enough to help feed over 16,000 hungry families across the city.

If you didn’t get a chance to see it in person, Amusing the Zillion has some great photos — and you can also always make a donation online to support the work of City Harvest.
