Event co-chairs Julie Nadel and Bobbie Rosenblatt joined the Board of Trustees and physicians of Sansum Clinic to host this unique affair at Isla Mar, the private and historic estate of Geoffrey Claflin Rusack and Alison Wrigley Rusack in Hope Ranch.
At each course of the luncheon, guests had an opportunity to speak with a variety of Sansum Clinic healthcare professionals who discussed the latest advancements in their own specialties. Wine Cask Executive Chef Brandon Hughes prepared the first course. Jamie West, executive chef at San Ysidro Ranch, prepared the entrée. Alberto Morello, chef/owner of Olio e Limone Ristorante and Olio Pizzeria, prepared dessert. All courses were paired with fine wine from Rusack Vineyards, personally selected by the Rusacks.
A boutique live auction raised over $300,000 and included sideline tickets to Super Bowl XLVI, the “Ultimate Dinner Party” with Wolfgang Puck cooking dinner in the comfort of the winning bidder’s home, and an afternoon sail on a Farr 60 Sailing Vessel. Guests had the opportunity to “fund a need”, including the community flu shot program, Camp Wheez for kids with asthma, and diagnostic testing for those without the means to pay.
“Sansum Clinic is so fortunate to have the energy and enthusiasm of Julie Nadel and Bobbie Rosenblatt to create an event like Eat Well & Stay Well. I haven’t heard of another occasion that brings together our local celebrity chefs and some of our community’s leading physicians – at one of the most picturesque estates in California – to inform guests about the latest advancements in medical care,” said Kurt N. Ransohoff, MD, CEO and President of Sansum Clinic.
Sansum Clinic is leading the way into the next 90 years with a commitment to deliver the best healthcare and services to our patients and our entire community. “Our longevity is due to our ongoing investment in the latest equipment and technology and our recruitment of the best and the brightest physicians from across the country and around the globe,” continued Dr. Ransohoff. “We have always worked to stay out in front of the community’s needs, advancing care in addition to responding to the challenges of the day.”
