The H.O.P.E. Foundation

Logo_Hope There is no better feeling to experience than one the leaves an impact on someones life. This is what we have created with the H.O.P.E. Foundation, which is a 501c(3) non-profit that strives to “Help Others Pursue Education” in the culinary, visual and performing arts. Co-founded by Sweet Life Events President Monica Ulrich, and myself, where we strive to enhance the future of rising stars and young up-and-comers.

This is something I've been passionate about ever since I moved to the Big Apple six years ago! Check out my recent appearance on FOX Business – The Willis Report to learn more about the H.O.P.E. Foundation, and for some great recipes too! I have to say my re-imagined Gazpacho is a must to try! As we head into Fall, (which I'm absolutely loving!) check out my fall inspired recipes I featured on The Better Show. 

Save the Date: Wednesday October 29, 2014 for a Masquerade Black Tie Gala benefitting the H.O.P.E. Foundation. To learn more about H.O.P.E. and how you can get involved visit us at
