A Special Evening with Con and Linda Hewitt

NMRF Fundraiser DInner

We are grateful to NMRF Board of Director, Con Hewitt and his wife Linda for their wonderful generosity and hospitality! On Thursday, May 17, the couple hosted a special fundraiser dinner to support the important work of Dr. Marko Bodor and his team of highly dedicated researchers.

 

The evening raised critical funds through direct donations and an exclusive 2-lot auction including, “The Senator and a (Michelin) Star”, a dinner with California State Senator Bill Dodd and his wife Mary for 8 at La Toque as guests of Chef Ken Frank. Guests were also invited to “Drink in the History” by bidding on a small selection of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon wines including a magnum of 2014 Ghost Block offered by Dawne Dickenson and Andrew Hoxsey of Napa Wine Co., a fabulous vertical from Paradigm Winery, 2010 thru 2012, contributed by Ren and Marilyn Harris., and a magnum of Charles Sawyer’s exceptional 6.1.

 

Acclaimed global, luxury restaurant and hotel Executive Chef Tony Breeze flew in from Maryland to prepare an exceptional three-course meal. Magnums of Cabernet Sauvignon from Staglin Family Vineyard Estate, Stag’s Leap, and David Arthur provided by Michael Jackson, NMRF Chairman of the Board. The Hewitts shared Ghost Block Sauvignon Blanc and Elizabeth Rose Chardonnay before and during dinner courtesy of Napa Wine Co. Special thanks go to Tim and Carol Berg of Great Alaska Seafood for flying in rare White Alaskan King Salmon as one the evening’s entree choices.

 

The beautiful “Dinner Under the Stars” offered Director of Research, Dr. Marko Bodor an opportunity to share with guests some of the latest research he and his team are conducting, and their ability to reduce pain, increase mobility, and improve quality of life for people across our community.

 

If you are interested in hosting a lunch or dinner to support this important work, or would like to speak with us about becoming a Wine Sponsor for future events, please call Michelle Voss, Community Relations Manager (707) 492-0313.
