A Chance for Life—And Learning

Food is a great path peoples’ minds and hearts, and two recent events proved just that. Funds were raised along with awareness at least two great local events I was pleased to attend—one of which I’m happy to host with our Minnesota Monthly team on a monthly basis.


February 18, 2011 – Metropolitan Ballroom & Clubroom, Minneapolis, MN

Why: To raise funds for the Another Chance for Life Fund, which provides scholarships to individuals and families seeking treatment and recovery from gambling addictions.

Hosted by: Chef Larry D’Amico, Seth Bixby Daugherty, and me!

February 15, 2011 – Crave Restaurant Galleria
