This past weekend I had the pleasure and privilege of spending time with 3 amazingly talented friends. This was an offshoot of the celebrity golf tournament I work on that's held each January and these wonderful friends put together a "Mega Package" that earned $32,000 for our event so, of course, I wanted to be available for them in whatever capacity they needed.
Here are the players: Grammy-Award Nominee, Cindy Bullens; HGTV's Kelly Edge, formerly of "Decorating Cents" and Executive Chef, Lee Hillson, of T. Cook's restaurant at the Royal Palms Resort in Scottsdale, AZ, and of "Iron Chef America" fame.
My glamorous role? I took delivery of 150 lbs. of food and kept it all at a safe temperature until service. I also shoppped for a number of items beforehand, thus delivering about 200 lbs. of food on the first day. The rest of the weekend was spent in support of the event...airport runs, food pick-ups, and my crappy knife-skills! I was looking forward to spending time with Chef Lee and was so flattered about him allowing me into his kitchen. Still, these families delivered a great experience...thank you!!
