Join Helen Bendix and John Kronstadt for a dinner of original Moosewood Cookbook favorites, spirited discussion and Big Red reminiscences in their beautiful Craftsman-style home in the Pacific Palisades. The Moosewood Cookbook has inspired generations to cook simple, healthy, and seasonal food. It was listed as one of the top ten best-selling cookbooks of all time by the New York Times.

Helen and John are both distinguished members of the L.A. legal community.  On April 25, 2011, former Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge John A. Kronstadt was sworn in as a federal district judge for the United States District Court, Central District of California. Judge Kronstadt was nominated by President Barack Obama on November 17, 2010, and re-nominated on January 5, 2011.  Judge Kronstadt received his undergraduate degree in government from Cornell University in 1973, graduating with distinction.  He obtained his law degree from Yale Law School in 1976.

Currently serving as Associate Justice, Helen I. Bendix was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown to the Court of Appeal, Second District, Division One, on April 17, 2018, after having served on the trial court for almost 21 years.   She attended Cornell University as a scholarship student.  She earned her law degree from Yale Law School.

How can you simultaneously have a wonderful meal, meet new Cornellians and help provide much-needed scholarships for deserving Los Angeles Cornell students?  The Club’s annual series of Scholarship Dinners & Events offers you a chance to have a great time while benefiting CCLA’s Scholarship Endowment.  

Over the past 25 years, scholarship dinners have been CCLA’s principal means of building our Scholarship Endowment. Our donations from this fund to help Los Angeles-area Cornell students over the years have totaled $265,000, all thanks to our dedicated alumni who attend these events. The University uses our annual donation to supplement the financial aid needs of about a dozen students from L.A.  

Note that 100 percent of all donations are going to the Endowment and your tax adviser can explain how your contribution may be deductible.
