As a cancer survivor myself, I was beyond overjoyed to see so many Angelenos out and about this weekend to support the American Cancer Society at Cal Spirit 30 – hosted by award-winning chef Rocco DiSpirito of Extreme Weight Loss. Eating for a good cause?! – count me in!
Sony Pictures Studios was packed with foodies, philanthropists, and even Allison Janney of West Wing sampling bites from some of LA’s most noteworthy eateries. Grilled pork chops from Redbird, lobster rolls from Knuckle + Claw, and freshly baked donuts from ICDC were just a few of the scrumptious samplings from the evening – can you say YUM?! Not to mention, expertly crafted cocktails by renowed mixologist Julian Cox.
Snacking is one of my favorite pastimes, so getting the opportunity to try small bites from such a plethora of restaurants was such a great experience! I’ve definitely gotten the inspiration for lots of new summer recipes – stay tuned for those!
Needless to say, I left this event with a full belly – as well as a full heart! Check out all of my pictures below for more details on the event!
