Spokane Chef Jeremy Hansen Headed to Puerto Rico

James Beard nominee and local chef, Jeremy Hansen, will spend most of November in Puerto Rico, where he'll volunteer his time and talents to provide meals for victims of Hurricane Maria. Hansen, along with a small team of other local responders, will travel to the US territory later this month to join forces with internationally known chef Jose Andres' World Central Kitchen, which has been spearheading food relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Hansen and others involved in this outreach will assist chefs already in Puerto Rico who have been serving disaster stricken citizens at pop up restaurants and other locations since the September 20 hurricane decimated the island.

In preparation for what is a very personal project for the chef, Hansen and his wife, Kate, along with collaborators from around the region, will hold a fundraising dinner this Friday, October 27 at the Washington Cracker Building, 304 W Pacific. The Spokane relief team is inviting the public to take part by buying tickets to attend the dinner. Reservations for this Puerto Rican Family-style Steak Dinner can be made by calling 509-703-7907. Suggested minimum donation is $100 per seat; $1,000 for table of ten. Wine reception starts at 6:15pm, followed by dinner.

Delta Airlines is the presenting sponsor and has covered all the airfare for the team headed to Puerto Rico.

Jeremy and his wife Kate Hansen own and operate Sante Restaurant & Charcuterie, Inland Pacific Kitchen, Biscuit Wizard, Common Crumb Bakery and Hogwash Whiskey Den, all in Spokane.

Spokane Media Gal wins Influencer Award during National Conference

Stephanie Regalado was honored as the Top Social Media Influencer during the National Association of Women Business Owner's (NAWBO) National Women's Business Conference last week in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As the NAWBO-Northwest Chapter president, she joined more than 1,000 women business owners from across the U.S. along with representatives from more than 50 countries during the three-day leadership conference with headliners including Erin Brockovich and Gayle Lemmon.

Stephanie owns Business BirdSong, a boutique communication firm focused on content creation-social media, PR, web text, blogs, and is most widely recognized for her work in magazines, in particular her current role as Editor-in-chief of Spokane Coeur d'Alene Living magazine. "Most people don't realize Bozzi Media is my client, and my role as editor-in-chief falls under my own business. Like most business women I know, there is more to our professional story, and capacity, than most people realize," she says. Stephanie works with businesses of all sizes, employing talented writers to help manage the workload while providing the 'media magic' she has gained over the last 17 years in the industry.

Annual Bing Crosby House Museum Open House is Dec. 2

The fourth annual Holiday Open House at the Bing Crosby House Museum will be held on Saturday, December 2 from 1-4pm, hosted by the Bing Crosby Advocates. The museum at 508 E. Sharp Avenue on the campus of Gonzaga University will be decorated for the holidays, and hot cider and cookies will be served by the Bing Crosby Advocates, a nonprofit organization dedicated to maintaining the legacy of Bing Crosby. Admission is free to the public, with designated free parking directly behind the house.

Built in 1911, this is where the internationally famous star of film song, radio and more grew up and where he lived until leaving for Hollywood in 1925. And it's the very place where the singer of 'White Christmas' spent many youthful Christmases. More than 200 items are on display in the museum showing Bing Crosby's life and career. Visitors can see his gold and platinum records, the Oscar he won for the film Going My Way, pipes, trophies, photographs from his career and personal life and other items.

For information contact Stephanie Plowman at 509-313-3847 or plowman@gonzaga.edu.
