Chefs Cook Up Funds For A Friend

Another heartstring tug: A mother of four youngsters fights for her life, the family’s medical policies are defunct, and medical bills to battle the woman’s vicious cancer mound like the Great Pyramid.

Chef Daniel Porubiansky worked with my daughter Dakota at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead (Atlanta) under the direction of Chef Bruno Menard. Recently Chef Porubiansky accepted a position at Seeger’s in Atlanta. His medical coverage was in transition. A wicked ovarian cancer was discovered in his wife, Andrea. Boom! Medical coverage declined.

Now a group of all-star chefs, Dakota included, are gathering this weekend to cook up funds for their colleague, Chef Porubiansky. Click on this link for the full story.

Being blessed in so many ways is a gift of which I can never quit saying thank you. I know I can’t save the world, but I can gift back. It doesn’t kill me to give up shopping for the latest fashion that I may wear just once, and it surely doesn’t hurt to give up a good bottle of wine and let someone else drink from the fount.
