For the last five years, Kait and I have donated our time to the dinners that are thrown each year in May to support the Heart's Delight events which benefit the American Heart Association. As someone who had a heart defect caught and operated on at age 30, I am a huge supporter of this cause.
Every year at least one of the events that we have photographed has been at the Bethesda home of J.D. and Genevieve Murphy. For the past four years the dinners were catered by chefs from both Marcel's and Brasserie Beck. This year, the chef was Christophe Marque of Cafe du Parc at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The food presentation was spectacular and the Murphy's are about the nicest hosts you could imagine. If Kait and I were not working, we would still be there as the guests enjoyed the fabulous food and wine that we have come to expect from this wonderful event each year.
