“I’m thrilled to be an ambassador for this year’s Cultivate LA event; an incredible event calling on local chefs and special guests to come together to celebrate and support foster kids in our community. Funds raised from the annual food and wine event help the kids at United Friends of the Children put their best foot forward e.g. graduate from high school, earn a bachelor’s degree, learn valuable life skills, secure a job, and find their first apartment. We raised a whopping $400,000 last year – I hope you all have a blast and smash this impressive record in 2014!”
