The Arts are alive and well thanks to the efforts of Joy Satterlee, Executive Director of the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, and her amazing team who presented the 16th Annual Cuisine for Art Wednesday May 22nd, 2013 at Seminole Hard Rock and Casino. The evening was everything it promised to be and more. The food, art, entertainment, and the celebrity waiters made the evening a memorable one and at the same time raised money and awareness for the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood. It was an amazing evening and we are already looking forward to next year’s extravaganza…It just keeps getting better and better!
