Hospital Hospitality House, SAVOR The White House 2011, Charity, Richmond, Virginia

Woah! Long time no see.  It has been quite some time since I have had time to sit down and make a new post.  It is about time!  We have been very busy here in the studio.  It is that time of the year for us where we are bustling around and preparing for the holiday season.  I wanted to take a minute and fill you in on the run in Beth and Wolfgang had with Bill and Hilary.  You know the ones!  THE Bill and Hilary.  A few weeks ago Beth and Wolfgang photographed the SAVOR The White House event at the Country Club of Virginia.  This annual event raises money for the Hospital Hospitality House organization.  This year approximately $150,000 was raised during this state dinner themed event.  Chef Roland Mesnier was the host and VIP of this great night.  Chef Roland served as the White House Executive Pastry Chef for 26 years.  He has presided over more than 600 state dinners.  As you will see in the photos below the meal Chef Roland  and his team created were out of this world!  The real icing on the cake for everyone was the special appearance by President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton with their security detail in tow.  Bill and Hilary entertained the crowd and helped raise some big money during the live auction.

We have been working with the HHH for several years now.  We know that staff well, have met several donors and those who at one time or another have stayed at the house.  Please take a moment to visit their website http://www.hhhrichmond.org/ and learn about how this organization helps and comforts families through times of medical crisis.

The guests of honor.

Chef Roland himself!

Some behind the scenes action of the amazing food.

All of the gold rimmed service plates were signed by Chef Roland and are replicas of the Eisenhower china.
