Taste and Tribute and Other Things of Beauty

Hi guys, I’m back from a little birthday vacation and I’m so excited to share with you the best birthday present I could possibly imagine.

As you know, I love beautiful things, and I can think of plenty I’d like to have, from perfume or jewelry to clothes or cosmetics, but the gift I am most anticipating is attending the sure-to-be fabulous Taste and Tribute gala in San Francisco this Friday, November 16.

I cannot wait for this event, which benefits the Tibetan Aid Project. The Tibetan Aid Project is an organization dedicated to preserving the human rights, art and literacy of the Tibetan people, who are recognized for their quiet beauty. Unfortunately the people and their culture are in jeopardy due to their communist neighbor, China. It’s been a long and ugly struggle for these peaceful people.

The twelfth annual Taste and Tribute is held in the grand ballroom of the Four Seasons hotel, and features 22 top Bay Area chefs as they prepare four-course meals table-side for those in attendance.

Dinner is followed by both a live and silent auction with fabulous prizes, such as beautiful Tibetan art, or my dream prize: a trip for two to Italy with luxury accommodations.

Tickets are $350 a plate. I really hope you’ll join me for this selfless cause. For more information contact Judy Rasmussen, executive director of the Tibetan Aid Project at 510.848.4238.

If you can’t make it on Friday, consider sending a check made out to the Tibetan Aid Project. Their address is 2210 Harold Way, Berkeley, California, 94704.

It’s a noble way to contribute and another example of how beauty shall save the world.
