WOW gala, plus Guy Fieri salsas and BBQ sauces

"Guy told 500 people at the Tocchini family’s 3rd Street Cinema theaters that WOW (Worth Our Weight) founder Evelyn Cheatham beat the odds by creating a high-quality training restaurant at which none of the staff is paid and the patrons receive no check, just an invitation to donate.

'I think the original name of it,' Guy said, 'was HOW?'"

So starts an article in Santa Rosa's Press Democrat.

$10,000 in tickets sales alone were raised for the organization. WOW apprentices served food at Sunday’s moviehouse gala and Guy previewed the “Diners, Drive-Ins and Drives” episode that he and Food Network produced on Worth Our Weight. The episode showed on TV for the first time Monday, January 17, 2011.

Guy Fieri's company donated a pretzle cart to WOW's organization.

Couldn't wait to taste Guy's new line at Fancy Food Show! Great taste, well presented on excellent pulled pork and awesome brisket. I love the regional sauces approach, especially the Kansas City one. Was very, VERY disappointed that I couldn't meet Guy. He was surrounded by a line of unsmiling halfback bouncers to ensure that he could meet undisturbed with his VIP accounts every 7 minutes. According to his handlers, he was not there for meet and greet or photo ops, no matter what the ad in Specialy News might imply. Bummer, HUGE bummer. Guess I'll head out to Santa Rosa.
