Cooking for healthy hearts

January 23, 1994|By SYLVIA BADGER

David Harper, Admiral Fell Inn; Robert Selig, Linwoods; Ron Andrews, Sheraton Inner Harbor; and Josef Gohring, Peerce's Plantation, were among the chefs who donated their time and expertise to raise money for the Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease.

Chicken Caesar salad, sour-mash-crusted chicken, island-spiced pork tenderloin and turkey wild-mushroom meatloaf were among the heart-healthful dishes they prepared at last weekend's Heartfest.

Special guest chef was Dr. William P. Castelli, medical director of the famous Framingham Heart Study, who showed the 700 or so guests at the Sheraton Inner Harbor that good food need not be bad for you.

The Ciccarone Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital is named for Henry A. Ciccarone, the Johns Hopkins University lacrosse coach, who died of a heart attack in 1988 at the age of 50. His widow, Sue, and their children Henry Jr., Steven, Brent and John, and their grandfather, Henry E. Sr., were among the guests at the third annual Heartfest.

Others at the party were Nancy and George Gephart, who worked hard to make the event a success; Dr. Roger Blumenthal, a former lacrosse player and one of the developers of the Ciccarone Center; Dr. Pascal Goldschmidt, center co-director, and his wife, Emily; and Dr. Simeon Margolis, center co-director, and his wife, Bebe; Ed and Marty Speno, he's chairman of the Ciccarone Executive Committee Board; Jerry and Tammy Schnydman, he's director of alumni relations at Hopkins, a former lacrosse player and close friend of Henry Ciccarone; Bob and Margo Scott, he's director of athletics at Hopkins; Dr. Kenneth Baughman, director of cardiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and his wife, Cheryl; WLIF-FM's Sloane Brown and her husband, Dr. Steve Sobleman; David and Helene Lowry, he's the clinical coordinator at the center; Judy and Tom Matte, ++ former Colts star; and Joseph and Ozzie Cowan, he's the owner of Key Transport and a former lacrosse and football star at Hopkins.


U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski will be awarded the Maryland Volunteer Network's first "Volunteer and Community Service Advancement Award" at its eighth Legislative Roundtable on Feb. 3. She's being recognized as the author of the National and Community Services Act of 1990, which created an opportunity for volunteers to earn credit toward college loans or to buy a first home in return for long-term volunteer commitments.

Sarah Hoit Whitman, deputy director of Americorps' Civilian Community Corps, will also speak at the continental-breakfast meeting, 8 a.m.-11 a.m., at the Maryland Inn in Annapolis. Tickets are $12.50 and may be reserved by calling Mary Hasler, (301) 372-1878, or Jacqueline Lampell, (410) 333-6773.


If you have cabin fever, hop in your car and head for the Hyatt Regency today for the annual Food for All, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets are $45 at the door and include dining on delicious New Orleans-style foods prepared by chefs from about 20 area hotels and restaurants, or dancing to music by In the Mood, or watching the playoff game in a football lounge. There will be a cash bar and a silent auction, but (good news) the parking is free in the Hyatt garage.

Dress is casual or in Mardi Gras theme, whichever suits your fancy. This is a fund-raiser for the Maryland Food Bank and the Maryland Food Committee.


The Maryland Federation of Business & Professional Women's Clubs has selected its 1994 inductees into the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame. Congratulations to Rep.
