A Little Culture (Event #18): Phase One Foundation

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend Phase ONE’s 10th Annual event at The Bazaar restaurant located inside the SLS hotel. My dear friend, Meritt Elliott, invited me and I was absolutely honored to attend and support Phase ONE. Meritt became involved with Phase One because her late husband Kevin had brain cancer. Kevin was patient number eight for Phase ONE and they extended his life beyond expectation. The foundation gave Kevin and Meritt many years of happy marriage and the opportunity to conceive a beautiful little girl named Lyric…or as some of us call her, Lyrical the Miracle.

The night was filled with heart-warming stories of those who have encountered cancer, and most of all – hope. Hope that one day there will be a cure for this horrible disease. Hope that one day this awful affliction will stop taking the lives of those we love so dearly.

500 people came out to support Phase ONE, take in the beautiful atmosphere, and enjoy the amazing cuisine. Chef Jose Andres presented an amazing dinner served by the bite and accompanied by delicious libations and scrumptious desserts.
