I really like this picture with designer Barbara Lazaroff, and co-owner of Spago Beverly Hills (currently closed for renovations). Thanks to her the old olive trees that were in the patio have been saved and will be replanted in a house of one of the charities she takes care of.

Barbara spends lots of her time raising money for charities. In fact, this photo was taken back in 2011 at “An Evening on the Beach”, a charity event supporting the mission of St. Vincent Meals on Wheels — the 2012 edition will be on July 26th. Come join us!
