REMEMBERING: This first annual event benefited Smith Farm Center for Healing and the Arts and celebrated the late Joan Hisaoka, founder and president of Hisaoka Public Relations. The Healing Arts Gallery at Smith Farm Center was named in memory of Joan because of her dedication to its shared mission to transform the experience of cancer patients through the arts.

BON APPÉTIT: Joan had a passion for food, and the specially crafted four-course menu with wine pairings by Chef Todd and Ellen Gray of Equinox restaurant were exquisite indeed. The night ended on a high note with music by Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals.

THE GUESTS: Richard and Bonnie Patterson, Jack Davies, Gary Nakamoto, Leah Gansler, Ken and Faye Morrissette, and Charles Mann.
