One Night, One Heart Dinner

Last year I was honored to attend one of the Zen Hospice dinners during their annual ~ONE NIGHT, ONE HEART~ fundraiser. This year, I am even more honored to be invited back as an event co-chair, and host for one of the meals! This year, 250 people will gather around tables throughout the Bay Area for a collection of intimate dinner parties to support the innovative work of Zen Hospice Project as they commemorate their 21st anniversary.

The array of chefs, hosts, and locations is exciting, including chefs Dennis Leary of Canteen and the Sentinel, Jamie Lauren of Absinthe (and Top Chef contestant!), and the dinner with yours truly features a double play of Elizabeth Falkner (Orson, Citizen Cake) and Ryan Scott (Mission Beach Café), with wines from Murray Street Vineyards of the Barossa Valley in Australia.

You can view all the dinners and choices with this PDF link. $1,000 assures your first dinner choice, $500 assures one of your two dinner choices, and $275 assures one of your three dinner choices. Please respond by Monday October 27th for best dinner placement. You can print out the faxable reservation card from the website here.

Dinners are valued at $40 per ticket. Contributions in excess of that amount are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. This is an amazing organization that helps people in extraordinary ways—you can learn more, and even make a donation on their website at
