I Hosted A Spring Luncheon And Garden Tour

Back in 2011, I received a philanthropy award from the Orthopaedic Foundation for Active Lifestyles (OFAL) during a gala in Manhattan.  Dr. Kevin Plancher,  a prominent orthopaedic surgeon, is the chairman of the board of the OFAL, a nonprofit he founded to help advance local training and research in orthopedic medicine.  Because of my honor, I wanted to contribute to Dr. Plancher’s foundation and I donated a lunch and personal tour of my gardens to his recent fundraiser.  Once again, I asked  Chef Pierre Schaedelin to prepare the food.  Dr. Plancher, himself, purchased my contribution and invited his parents to join him, knowing how much his mother would love it.  It was a very pleasant experience.
