Best Cellars Dinner, I'm a co-host, is tomorrow.

Saturday’s Best Cellars Dinner, is a benefit for the T.J. Martell Foundation set for Saturday at the Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead.

I'm pleased to be a co-chair for the event along with Larry Beckwith, Robert Polay and David Kurzweil.

The foundation is a national nonprofit that raises funds and awareness for cancer, leukemia and HIV/AIDS research locally for Emory University’s Winship Cancer Institute. It hosts annual events in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Nashville and New York.

One of my favorite types of stories are the health stories where we get to announce to the viewer some type of breakthrough medical discovery, where you know someone’s life is going to improve because of it. It ticks me off some days that we don’t have a cure for so much of what our loved ones suffer with. But it’s good to know the T.J. Martell Foundation is funding some of the important work into leukemia, cancer and AIDS, and that as a result of being involved, you may be helping to write the eventual news story that such diseases are cured.
