A terrific fundraiser for Real Medicine Foundation founded by Dr. Martina C. Fuchs hosted by TV Personality Jill Simonian at the beautiful Gallery 1927 at the Fine Arts Building, 811 West Seventh Ave.
When I heard that Jill Simonian was hosting I knew I wanted to cover this event.  I knew her about 14 years ago when she was still in college so it was very nice to reconnect with her and meet her husband Dr. Andre Panossian and it's been alot of fun seeing her interviews on TV - "go Jill!"  The Real Medicine Foundation was founded in May 2005 by lovely  Dr. Martina Fuchs whose heart is definitely in the right place.  The foundation provides humanitarian support to people living in disaster and poverty stricken areas around the world and continues to help after the world's spotlite has faded.  Jill Simonian is a new Mom and shared that she was drawn to host and support the cause because she can't imagine the struggle uninsured families go through in poverty stricken areas. Also on hand at the event was beautiful Academy Award Nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo whose agency CAA is a major supporter of the cause.  Please visit to learn more.  Being the foodie I am I have to mention the great food catered by ....  HH(:
