Ball Homes is again looking forward to one of our newer annual traditions, the fourth annual Ball Homes Night of Hope. It takes place Thursday, November 15th at 7pm, at the Lexington Opera House. This year's event, which is a fund-raiser for the Hope Center, features a much-touted speaker with an incredible story to tell: Chef Jeff Henderson.
A well-known executive chef at Caesar's Palace, and at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, he has also hosted the Food Network hit, The Chef Jeff Project. His newest television show, Beat the Chefs, premieres this month. His memoir was a New York Times best-seller and his follow-up book, The Power of Potential, will be released in Spring of 2013.
Jeff Henderson’s background, however, is what makes his story so remarkable. Jeff grew up in a rough inner city L.A. neighborhood. He became a drug dealer and at 24, he was arrested. While in prison, Jeff matured, got an education, and found his life's calling. With persistence, dedication, and a can-do attitude, he rose through the ranks to become the person he is today.
