There’s nothing like fantastic food (and lots of it) from top Los Angeles chefs and great California wines to get people excited about supporting a very good cause.
Founding partner of the iconic Beverly Hills eaterie Spago, Barbara Lazaroff, along with her ex-husband chef Wolfgang Puck and friend — former head of Paramount Studios head Sherry Lansing – hosted the 27th annual California Spirit Gourmet Gala on Sunday (Aug. 7) benefitting the American Cancer Society. The ACS is the nation’s largest private, non-profit source of funds for ongoing cancer research.
Hungry Angelino foodies and wine lovers (over 650 of them) had a field day at the event held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Everyone was tasting the scrumptious creations from the top-rated chefs in Los Angeles with an excellent array of California wines.
The honoree of the event was Margaret Loesch, the founding CEO and president of The Hub, the children’s network brand on the Discovery Channel.
