Lakewood Shows Heart at Rozi's

Mimi Penick and Jim Marquard from Lakewood
A few years ago, while having lunch with my father at Kiwanis I met the publisher of the Lakewood Observer. After a brief conversation of what I liked (and a lot of what I didn’t like about the paper) he invited me to basically “put up or shut up”. So I have finally accepted the challenge. My goal in this column will be to introduce you, the reader, to a lighter, often happier, less complicated side of Lakewood. Introducing the people that live, work, and socialize here, to really amplify some of the more enjoyable aspects of this city that makes it great.

February 7th. I was invited to attend a wonderful fund raiser held at Rozis Wine House. The party was held to raise money and awareness for the Jordan Foundation. Over $10,000 was raised that evening for the foundation which supports research into congenital heart disease. More than 200 people attended this wine tasting and dinner. Matt Harlan, executive chief at Lolita’s provided lots of delicious food while Tom Rees from St. Supery in Napa introduced an array of wines. A heart felt thanks to Corey and Kara Rossen for a very enjoyable evening.
