Emeril Lagasse Golf Classic to support Johnson & Wales University

Nat Sherman was proud to be the exclusive cigar sponsor for the Annual Emeril Lagasse Golf Classic at the Newport Country Club in Newport, RI Sept 19th and 20th, to benefit Johnson & Wales University, Lagasse's alma mater.  It was a two-day affair beginning with a gala dinner on Monday Evening at Newport's Belle Mer.  The dinner featured well thought out dishes paired with one wine and one beer with each course.  Four students were awarded Emeril Lagasse Scholarships.  At the conclusion of dinner, guests were treated to Nat Sherman Cigars and Gossling's Rum.  (More Pictures to Come)

Nat Sherman at The Kahala Food and Wine Classic

The Kahala Hotel and Resort in Honolulu is "Hawaii’s reigning luxury resort."  And their Food and Wine Classics are the reigning food and wine events on the island.  These intimate events feature only one chef, one winemaker and one cigar brand, offering a wonderfully intimate experience allowing guests to connect personally with the hosts.  This past weekend's event was themed "Hollywood meets Honolulu" featuring Chef Carolynn Spence of L.A.'s Chateau Marmont, Rich Frank of Frank Family Vineyards and yours truly with Nat Sherman- the brand Hollywood has enjoyed for decades.
