Benefiting the American Cancer Society – CALSPIRIT July 28th in the Summer of 2013 at Los Angeles Pacific Design Center


This is THE Event for chefs and foodies – and does so much good too – supporting the American Cancer Society – I am gathering cards of chefs there to introduce them to my cheeses! It is called CALSPIRIT and can be accessed at

For the 29th consecutive year, CALIFORNIA  SPIRIT, will bring together renowned chefs from Los Angeles’ best restaurants  to prepare their finest culinary creations and wine makers from California’s  premier wineries to serve their finest reserves.

CALIFORNIA SPIRIT 29 happens on Sunday, July 28th, 2013.  Originally  founded in 1984 by Master Chef Wolfgang Puck, Barbara Lazaroff and Sherry  Lansing, CALIFORNIA SPIRIT, has grown into a spectacular gourmet gala featuring  exquisite cuisine, premium California wines, live entertainment, and a  spectacular live and silent auction.CY13-Gala-LA_event1

To date, California Spirit has raised over $15  million for the American Cancer Society.

Great fun – and sooooo much food and wine! WOW – everyone who is important ( or who thinks they are) in LA is there – promoted by my friends Barbara Lazaroff – creator of the  designs of all Wolfgang Puck Restaurants –  (he is her former husband) and so much more – and Sherry Lansing – whose motion picture leadership and career was sterling and who now puts her energy into creating opportunities in math and science for high school kids by encouraging executives in STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to bring their talents on a part time basis to young ones in school – what a valuable deliverable to our youth! How could I not support such an event! You too can contribute to the American Cancer Society – just go to and donate on line. It’s an epidemic – how many people do you know who have been affected by cancer? My family has – our grand nephew ( 4 years old) has ALL ( cancer of the blood – Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia), my mother passed away at 61 from cancer and about 90% of my friends have had or still have breast cancer. There is no single family that is untouched and we CAN do something about it. You can donate in many ways – here are a list of links that will help you to make good things happen. And THANK YOU!

I thank you for making a difference.
