On Wednesday, Weiser Family Farms will be hosting and donating produce for a gourmet dinner in order to raise money for the child of an employee: 2-year old Emily Rico, who suffers from neuroblastoma, a rare nerve cancer in her stomach. Emily has spent a month in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy and will soon have an operation to remove her tumor. For this worthy cause, Pasadena chef Claud Beltran of Noir Food and Wine will cook several courses, each paired with a high-quality wine. The event will be held at Maxwell House in Pasadena, with all proceeds going directly to the Rico family.
