In fact, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation’s (ETAF) first grant of $150,000 was bestowed on the agency in 1992. She served as a Project Angel Food trustee for 22 years and was honored with her own Angel Award in 1999. “Elizabeth Taylor’s leadership for HIV/AIDS causes and Aileen Getty’s advocacy for the homeless echo a passionate commitment for helping the most vulnerable citizens of our community,” said Joel Goldman, Managing Director of ETAF.

Celebrity Chef Govind Armstrong Chef Govind Armstrong
Celebrity Chef Govind Armstrong has emerged as one of the nation’s brightest culinary stars, making headlines with his “Table 8″ restaurants in both Los Angeles and Miami. He has gone on to open the highly popular “8oz Burger Bar” currently located in several cities nationwide along with LA’s southern style “Post and Beam”. True to form and philosophy, Armstrong’s most recent venture anchored with restaurateur Brad Johnson is “Willie Jane” that features Armstrong’s take on Southern American cuisine now with an emphasis on low country coastal dishes and a selection of large format plates to be enjoyed family-style in the heart of Venice, CA.
