CITY OF HOPE KICKOFF BREAKFAST: A NOSH WITH THE MOUTH OF THE SOUTH

City of Hope’s Spirit of Life kickoff event feting super-attorney Joel Katz, this year’s honoree, is set for 8/29 at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood. During the invitation-only breakfast, Sir Lucian Grainge and Irving Azoff will rise from their chairs and shower the universally adored Atlanta-based barrister with effusive praise.

The event marks the official start of the Spirit of Life campaign, which will culminate at a gala in L.A. on 11/10. Katz will receive City of Hope's highest honor in recognition of the impact of his work on the music, film and entertainment industries. Katz has played a profound role in spearheading philanthropic endeavors in education and in cancer research.

If you’re on this site, you’re likely aware of the fact that Katz is the Chair of the Global Entertainment and Media Practice of Greenberg Traurig, Katz—and legendary "Mouth of the South." His clients have included James Brown, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney and George Strait.
