Wow, Chef Joseph’s First Year Anniversary Blow-out!

So many of our friends came out to see our Special Guest, Molly Meeker of Meeker Vineyards during the 1st night of our 1 year Anniversary weekend. It was great to have Michel Pascal, owner of Carol Company, along to help with the hosting duties!

We decided to use the special night as a thank you to the community for all their support, so Chef Joseph put together auction items ranging from Ice Cream to Jewelry, Tapas Dinners to very special Bottles of Wine all donated by dear friends. Molly Meeker even donated a dinner for 20 at Meeker Vineyards along with great quantities of wine! Chef Joseph played the part of Tasmanian Devil running around getting the courses of food out while Molly assisted as Hostess with the Mostess giving descriptions of her families wines and vineyards.

In typical fashion, Molly also told awesome stories from her days of working with the legendary Norman Lear, her husband Charlie, Academy Award Winning Director, producing such movies as Golden Child, Witness, Romeo and Juliet, Hitcher and only a couple dozen more, and Charlie’s unexpected purchase of the Winery. Molly and Chef played off each other as Chef auctioned the items.

Chef finished the evening thanking all of the staff for their hard work and of course those crazy boys from Table 34 at Chef’s past place for putting Chef Joseph’s at The Connoisseur Room together.

In the end, Chef and Molly working the room raised over $13,300 for Little Red Door Cancer Agency. Chef personally thanked every one from the bottom of his heart, had a couple glasses of wine with all his friends and closed the evening.
