Barbara Balik - 21 st Culinary Evening with the California Winemasters
Pam Starr - Winemaker Crocker & Starr Wines
(One of the premier female winemakers in the world today) As the result of a lifetime love of fine wines, Pam Starr has been making some of the best wines in the Napa Valley for over 25 years. She honed her techniques while working at Sonoma-Cutrer, Edna Valley, Carmenet, and truly excelled at Spottswoode in the mid-'90s. Her current portfolio also includes cult favorites Gemstone, Adastra, and Garric Cellars. In 1997 Pam founded a partnership with Charlie Crocker with the goal of crafting a small production of exquisite wines. The three wines are: the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon "Stone Place", the Estate Cabernet Franc, and the Sauvignon Blanc. Sat 05/15/2010 6:00 PM - 10:30 PM Warner Bros.

We are very proud of this accomplishment and the fact that 91 cents out of every dollar raised goes directly into our research and care programs. In fact, a recent edition of Wall Street Journal’s SmartMoney recognized the Foundation as “the top charity in the health-research category.” Winemasters is the largest CFF fundraiser in Los Angeles raising close to $16 million for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation over 18 years. “Adding tomorrows every day” expresses the mission - and results - of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s steadfast efforts to continue extending the length and quality of life for people with CF.

Robin Doody - GM Northeastland Hotel - Presque Isle
(Side Note - Jack Roberts was on WEGP AM 1390 in Presque Isle, ME and he worked for the late Skip Carroll, a local car dealer doing afternoon drive 3-7 PM. He had a trade with the Northeastland Hotel and stayed there for almost a year (great breakfasts!!) (1973-1976) What is today one of the most prestigious Presque Isle hotels, now known as The Northeastland Hotel, originated as a wooden structure "house" aptly called The Presque Isle House. It was taken down by hand, stick by stick, in 1931. The brick structure that you see today was opened in 1932. The elevator, one of the first in Presque Isle, was built in 1950. The first tenant of The Northeastland Hotel was Vincent Baressi, who owned and operated his barbershop until the early 1970s. The Coffee Shop, formerly a jewelry store, opened for business in 1950 and is currently known as The Sidewalk Café, although to some it will be forever known as "The Coffee Shop."
