hen Grayson Lee and I met Lin Zheng in 8th grade, neither of us could have imagined what he would be faced with in just three short years. Back then, he was a friend and classmate struggling through geometry with us. He was a student, just like us. He was a typical teenager, just like us. Everything changed in the summer before eleventh grade. What was supposed to be a routine physical before summer camp quickly turned into a sledgehammer blow to the Memphis University School community. Lin, who had become a good friend of ours and an integral member of our high school class, was diagnosed with leukemia. He immediately began treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As soon as Grayson and I noticed what a difference Lin’s absence made in the next school year, we knew we had to act. We gathered a group of other MUS students and formulated the plans for the first St. Jude Race to Remission. The race would be held at MUS with all proceeds going to St. Jude in honor of Lin. Thanks to tremendous support from Lin’s friends and family, the race accumulated almost $50,000 for the hospital. But the race was about far more than raising money. We hadn’t reached our goal until after the event when Lin’s mother told us how much better Lin was responding to treatments after seeing how much support he had from the Memphis community. It was at this moment that Grayson and I knew

28 / 4Memphis

we had to expand our project. If the two of us could have this big of an impact on someone going through something so difficult, imagine what we could do if we came together with students from other schools to host an event in honor of more teenagers battling cancer. So that’s exactly what we did. We teamed up with students from schools across the city (Hutchison, St. George’s, Houston High School, St. Mary’s, Presbyterian Day School, Briarcrest, and many others) to plan the second St. Jude Race to Remission and Festival. With the support of so many schools, we were able to include Allie Allen of Houston High School and Adam Cruthirds of St. George’s as honored St. Jude patients as well. Because of our previous success, St. Jude/ALSAC agreed to make our project a sanctioned St. Jude event. With that change, we were able to produce official race t-shirts and wristbands using St. Jude’s logo and colors. Thanks to gear sales, donations from the generous Memphis community, and sponsorships from Pyro’s, Allenberg Cotton Co., Wunderlich Wealth Management, and dozens other companies, we were able to raise nearly $60,000 for St. Jude to recognize the great work they’ve done for our friends. Additionally, our friends’ stories were covered by WMC Action News 5, Choose901, Germantown News, and many other media outlets, generating awareness for the hospital and our upcoming event. Finally, the day of the race and festival arrived. On the morning of April 2, 2016, over 500 people gathered to run a 5k around the campus of MUS in the name of their friends and classmates

youthimpact WRITING SERIES

battling some of the toughest diseases on the planet. After the race, hundreds of teens and kids joined us for a festival including live music, inflatables, food trucks, Knockerball, face painting, a dunk tank, and more. Best of all, Allie and Adam were well enough to join us to share their thanks to everyone who has given them so much support. While Lin unfortunately could not make it to the race or festival, he is planning to return to school this year. The Race to Remission did have incredible success in terms of money, participation, and awareness raised, but none of those things was our ultimate goal. Grayson’s and my vision for the event would not have been fulfilled if we hadn’t made a difference in the lives of our friends fighting battles we could never imagine fighting. The whole point of putting on something like the Race to Remission is to show our friends that there is more support for them in this city than they know. We are blessed to be able to say that with the race and festival we accomplished just that. Grayson and I had a secondary goal for this event as well: to show teenagers around this city that they can make a big difference when they put their minds and talents into a project usually left to adults. We want our event to inspire other youth in Memphis to put their full heart into a cause the way Lin, Allie, and Adam inspired us to do the same. So, to those with a big idea... Dive in.

OF FALL with KenHall

Somehow the world comes back to life in September and builds to a crescendo through October. School is back in session, football weekends, the performing arts season kicks off, and, hopefully, the weather begins to get a tad cooler. Even in the arguably niche realm of the arts, there is simply more to do than any one person could possibly attempt. That’s my way of saying that the list below is not comprehensive, but hopefully representative. And I want to challenge you to pick one or two that are new to you and check them out!

Helping in More Ways than One

By Lesley Harris Colvett, photography by Mark O. Ramirez

Getting a good bargain feels great, and giving feels even better. A surefire way to give, and get a great bargain, is through local thrift shops. Memphis is home to some thrift stores that are not only providing an easy outlet for donating gently used items, but also a way to truly help the community. Or even better, score some great deals yourself. Over the last few years, a couple of unique thrift stores have opened in the Memphis area - Blues City Thrift at Quince Road and Kirby, and Helping People God’s Way Thrift Store in Cordova. These thrift stores are not only giving shoppers bargains on quality goods, but also supporting ministries throughout the city. “We give back to our city however we can help,” says Carol Choukalas, who started Helping People God’s Way Thrift Store with her husband Keith in October 2011. “I feel like God has called us to give back.” Since opening 5 years

ago, Helping People God’s Way has donated $250,000 to local ministries. They give monthly/every other month to ministries that have been established here in Memphis, and employ staff who are given a “second chance” at employment. “We support ministries in Memphis that touch every part of the city…and in addition to financial we give clothes as needed, and we support kids who go on mission trips,” Carol said. At Helping People God’s Way, shoppers are able to find fabulous items (clothing, beautiful and unique furniture,

and house goods) with bargains that you can’t find at department stores. “We have families who come in and shop for the great bargains, and when people purchase at Helping People God’s Way, they are truly helping people because the money they spend will directly benefit ministries that serve the Memphis community,” Carol added. Blues City Thrift, a 501© 3 non-profit, opened in 2013, says their mission is to use 100% of the profits from the sale of donated items to employ people and to support local, Memphis charities. “It’s goods for the greater good,” said Tom Frazier, who opened Blues City Thrift in 2013 and served as the director until January 2016. Harlon Walker serves as the current store manager. Since its founding, it has been the purpose and goal that 100% of the profits of Blues City Thrift go toward the support of local charitable organizations and ministries, among which are the following: First Congregation and First Presbyterian Church ministries to Memphis’ homeless; Eikon Ministry in Binghampton; The Church Health Center; Urban Tuition Assistance for Christian Education at Westminster Academy; and Youth Leadership of Memphis. “Everything we do within the store is an effort to help others. We hire workers from local ministries, giving them an opportunity to get back on their feet. We offer household treasures at affordable prices and we take every penny of profit and pour it back into local ministries such as The Church Health Center, charities that are on the front lines impacting Memphis,” Tom said. Blues City Thrift accepts lightly used household items such as furniture, household goods, clothing, jewelry and electronics. Don’t let hesitation stop you from sending in an item because Blues City Thrift has a

plan for those items that may not be in as great a condition. “We are sometimes offered items that we can’t accept because our standards are high. In those cases, we give dozens of bags of items to ministries all over town who serve the homeless. We recycle everything,” Tom said. “We are richly blessed with our donors and the quality of merchandise they tend to send our way. Many of the items we receive are new or like new, and, because of that, we are sometimes viewed as an “upscale” thrift store,” Harlon says. Carol agreed that at Helping People God’s Way they are given some amazing, quality items. “When you think of meeting the physical needs of people, after food and water, regardless of the time of year, clothing ranks highest. And, with the abundance of clothing we do receive, volunteers are always needed to prepare these items to be put out for sale.” Harlon said. Maybe you don’t have “things” to necessarily part with, but you may have “time”. For a person who is employed full-time, or a busy mother, donating several hours a week to a charity or organization may not be possible. As Tom believes, everyone has a skill - whether it be bookkeeping, arranging items on a shelf, or greeting people with a smile - and those skills and giving of your time can really make a big difference. Research show that helping others is good for us. Studies have linked helping others to a decreased mortality risk, especially when there is a social connection involved. Volunteering at thrift shops is an easy way to help. Fall is around the corner, and with a change in season comes a change in wardrobe. It’s a great time to clean out your closets and/or homes and assess some items that you may have moved on from.

HEALING BEAUTIFULLY

Art Not To Be Missed By Sandi Butler Hughes; photography by Mark Ramirez Sometimes you don’t know what you’re missing until you do, but a recent visit to an artist-friend’s midtown home and studio enlightened me to just such an epiphany. Suzanne Henley mentioned she had just put the finishing touches on her commissioned artwork for the newly opened Spence and Becky Wilson Baptist Children’s Hospital Pediatric ER waiting room. Naturally, I was curious (nosy?), and asked if I could have a sneak peek. When the blue tarp was pulled back, there was a marvelous, magical mosaic apple tree, destined for a public place that I most likely would never go. Iridescent tile pieces created the tree canopy and held several red apples of fairytale-perfection, all supported by a dimensional trunk crafted of antique wood salvaged from a Chinese junk. The trunk was complete with several little pockets woven into the design to embrace special intentions, prayers, or wishes to be written on slips of paper then tucked into the tree. My children are grown, and my trips to the pediatric ER are thankfully done. Most likely I would never have had the opportunity to see this incredible piece of art, if not for my well-timed visit to a talented friend, and I began to wonder just what other amazing pieces might I be missing. The Spence and Becky Wilson Baptist Children’s Hospital opened in January, 2015, and the 17,000 square foot emergency room is part of the Baptist Memorial Hospital for Women, where over 5,000 new babies are born each year. The artful experience begins just off the large rotunda entrance with a photographic gallery of exotic animals and smiling children from across the globe, photographed by Becky Wilson. Once inside the treatment bays of the ER, the walls are lined with 59 intricately quilted fabric squares featuring the Baptist’s pediatric mascots, P.D., Polly and Friends. The brightlycolored, creative pieces were designed and donated by the Uncommon Threads Quilt Guild. Also tucked withIn the women’s hospital complex is the expansive and evergrowing Hall of Legends. The large collection of original artwork is assembled in conjunction with the Women’s Foundation of Greater Memphis Legends Award. The annual Award Honorees are recognized through unique works of art and prose, created in their honor then displayed in the Hall of Legends. Another place I mercifully have not had cause to frequent

60 / 4Memphis

that boasts an abundant collection of beautiful and inspirational art is the West Cancer Center. The new East Campus clinic opened in late 2015, and is home to an array of original works by local and regional artists. Some of the art is soothing, while other pieces are whimsical, and all are as varied as the imaginations of the artists. Paintings, sculptures, glass, fabric pieces, and even a LEGO “painting” are installed with the intention of bringing hope to each person who enters the new stateof-the-art treatment facility. However, in the heart of the Midtown Medical District at the corner of Union and Cleveland is an art installation that is certainly hard to miss. Looming over the intersection on the exterior of the Union Centre office building are several “Blue Dog” murals by George Rodrigue. From patriotic to playful, the big Blue Dog paintings enliven the busy corridor near the Methodist University Hospital. An original Blue Dog painting hangs the nearby Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, another art-filled medical facility, which opened in 2010, and after my pediatric days of parenting. “Art has the power to become a distraction, to divert one’s eyes and mind so as to lessen the stress through distraction,” explains Linda Hill, Art Director for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. “In lots of cases it is therapeutic for a patient. The art gives a destination, a reason to take a walk for just a few feet or hospitalwide. Each floor has about 25 pieces of framed art, and we have a treasure hunt written for each floor. Through hints, patients can walk the floor looking at the art for the answers and getting therapy in the process.” Throughout the Methodist-Le Bonheur system, a visual experience is created by the placement of art and is a vital part of the patient’s well-being and healing process. Depending on your insurance plan, your doctor’s network, or exactly what malady you or a loved one is experiencing, some splendid pieces of art are “hiding” in very public spaces, should we have the opportunity or cause to see them. Most of all, we are so fortunate to have these fabulous medical facilities in our city, and that these organizations care enough to make them a beautiful place for healing...even if we might be missing it.

The Memphis Food & Wine Festival By Jennifer Chandler Mark your calendars! Memphis has a new event coming to town that you must attend! The Memphis Food and Wine Festival will be an evening dedicated to celebrating Memphis and its vibrant culinary scene. With over 75 participants, it’s shaping up to be this city’s biggest culinary showcase of the year. Over the past decade, Memphis has evolved from a town known primarily for its barbecue into a city that is home to some of the most talented chefs in not only the region … but the nation. This world-class celebration of the Mid-South’s culinary excellence and undeniable culture was created to put Memphis on the map as a culinary destination. “This event will mean so much for the positive image of Memphis and it’s a perfect way to showcase its culinary attributes and diversity. The culinary reputation that has already been established has helped the festival attract top chefs from across the nation and most definitely has attracted numerous award-winning wineries,” explained Sherry Chimenti, one of the founding event committee members. The first Memphis Food and Wine Festival will be a one-night event on Saturday, October 15 at The Live Garden at Memphis Botanic Garden. Over the course of the evening, attendees will have the chance to participate in exclusive wine and food tastings featuring 75 restaurants, artisans, chefs, and producers. “We have such great restaurants and culinary offerings 62 / 4Memphis

us to entertain our peers from different parts of the country and show them not only our food but our culture.”

Gutierrez and the event team have assembled an impressive line-up of talent.

In addition to the amazing bites that will be available for tasting, there will be an equally as amazing selection of wines. Each of the participating wineries have hand-picked the best wines from their portfolios for this event. “The quality of the wines we have coming is like no other event. Only the crème de la crème will be served,” explained Nancy Kistler, one of the event’s founding committee members. As each guest enters the festival, they will receive a souvenir Riedel crystal glass for their sipping and sampling.

Local chefs participating include the likes of Wally Joe of Acre, Patrick Reilly of The Majestic Grille, Ryan Trimm of Sweet Grass, Ben Smith of Tsunami, Jonathan Magallanes of Las Tortugas Deli Mexicana, Andreas Kisler of The Peabody Hotel, and Phillip Ashley Rix of Phillip Ashley Chocolates, to name a few. “Memphis has been good to me and I feel I should give back to Memphis,” explained Erling Jensen, chef & owner of his eponymous restaurant, when asked why he has chosen to participate. “I think our city will get a lot of good national press and attention thanks to this event.” In addition to all our hometown talent, Gutierrez has invited some spectacular guest chefs to take part in the festival. World renowned and Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten is the featured guest of honor. Also, on the guest list are PBS celebrity chef Vivian Howard of Chef & the Farmer in North Carolina, Dominic Orsini from Silver Oak Winery, French Master Chef Nico Romo from Fish Restaurant in Charleston, Deb Paquette from Etch in Nashville, James Boyce of Cotton Row Restaurant in Huntsville, Alabama, plus many others. “This event is a great way to show the rest of the country what we have going on here in Memphis,” offered Ryan Trimm of Sweet Grass. “As a restaurateur, I love to entertain. This event is a great chance for

This event is good for the belly … and good for the soul. The festival team is volunteering their time and their expertise to bring this festival to life to promote Memphis and to help give back to the community. “Having FedEx on board as our presenting sponsor has been invaluable. We are pleased to partner with FedEx to benefit the FedExFamilyHouse which offers compassion and comfort to the out-of-town families with children at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital,” added Chimenti. And you can’t have a Memphis festival without Memphis music! In addition to the food, wine, and a silent auction, the icing on the cake will be tunes from Memphis blues bands. So get ready, Memphis to eat, drink, and make merry at this spectacular new culinary event! For tickets and more information, visit www.memphisfoodwinefestival.org.

For the Love of Pasta Story & photos by Andrea LeTard

There are a few things on earth that make a person feel thrilled to be alive, and I am certain one of those is pasta. I put pasta in the same category as pizza and ice cream – the “show me a person who doesn’t like this food” category. So, maybe there’s some alien of a human out there who doesn’t like pasta, but there’s one thing no one can argue when it comes to this wonder food: it brings people together. As odd as it may sound, one of my favorite scenes on earth is a table full of family or friends - glasses clinking, stories being told, infinite laughter – surrounded by food. Watching people at their tables in a crowded restaurant or on a sunny patio amuses me greater than the undying beauty of any scenic ocean or mountaintop. Seeing pure and utter joy on every person’s face around a dinner table gives me life. It makes my heart flutter because that very sight is a perfectly painted picture of what brings people together in celebration and what makes me love life the very most – food. Each time I see this, I’m reminded that in a world of division and conflict we can all agree that food is the centerpiece to gathering, love, and happiness.

importance of a sit-down family meal actually is to the Italians. We were lucky enough to get a true Italian experience, staying with an Italian family outside of Florence and truffle hunting and homemaking gnocchi with another Italian family in Tuscany. What I learned from both of these families is a bowl of pasta – or gnocchi in this case – is a magical unifier. There’s something warm and welcoming about the causality of passing bowls of pasta around the table, making it the ideal dinner party food. I prefer making it from scratch and have been known to invite guests early to help. It’s fun to invite people not only to your dining table but also into your kitchen. And in my experience, friends and family who cook together stay together.

Italians are experts at this tableau and pasta is at the very core. While on a trip to Italy last summer, I discovered how true the

Another lesson learned from the Italians about pasta that I gleefully brought back to the US is that it’s ok to eat pasta every

Spicy Carbonara with Shaved Asparagus ANDREA LETARD

kosher salt 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 strips thick cut bacon, cut into small pieces 3 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed and discarded, tops

shaved with a vegetable peeler into thin strips ½ pound spaghetti 2 eggs 3/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated pepper 1 tablespoon butter parsley (optional)

In a large pot, bring water and a handful of salt to a boil for pasta. In a large saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat, add bacon and saute until crispy. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels. Turn the heat down to medium low, so the garlic doesn’t burn, then add garlic and red pepper flakes to the bacon fat. Cook for one minute or until fragrant. Add the shaved asparagus and sauté until soft. When the salty water comes to a boil, cook the spaghetti for about 6-7 minutes or until al dente. *Do not drain the spaghetti. You want to reserve the pasta water for the sauce, and the hot spaghetti will help cook the sauce. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, 2/3 cup of the parmesan, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. As soon as the spaghetti is done cooking, using tongs, immediately add the noodles into the asparagus mixture, take off the heat, and pour in the egg mixture. Stir the eggs into the pasta as fast as you can for several minutes. *You want the hot noodles to cook the eggs, but you don’t want the eggs to scramble. Add pan back to low heat, add 1/4-1/2 cup of the hot pasta water, depending on how thick you like your sauce. Stir in the butter and the bacon pieces. When ready to serve, top with the remaining parmesan and parsley, if desired.

day, and no, it’s not going to make you fat. I see it now, you’re shaking your head in disbelief, but hear me out. Americans worry too much about the calories and carbs that come with pasta, yet we still rank among the fattest countries. Italians are known to eat pasta daily and are ranked among the slimmest people in the world. So how do they do it? There are several explanations for this, but it boils down to two specific ways of life: small portions and fresh ingredients. A plate of pasta in Italy would be categorized to most folks in the US as tapas – especially Southerners. I can hear it now, “Well I got the short end of the stick. This is just enough to feed a mouse.” I’m certain I’ve said that exact phrase myself when being presented a small plate of food. What goes in their pasta is the real kicker. Italians have some of the freshest produce that exists and they use it. Their pastas are tossed with all-natural ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil, Heirloom and Roma tomatoes, and herbs such as fresh basil, parsley, oregano, rosemary, and thyme. Farm eggs are used to create creamy sauces such as Carbonara and fresh seafood such as shrimp, lobster, white fish, mussels, clams, and crab are used to enhance flavor without adding loads of calories. Of course, cheese – most popularly Parmigiano-Reggiano, Pecorino, Burrata, Mascarpone, Mozzarealla di Bufala, Ricotta Salata, Gorgonzola, and Asiago – will always be involved, but you see less heavy, buttery, cream-based pasta dishes than you see here in the States. Bottom line, pasta does not make you fat, the amount eaten or what goes in it does. That beloved scene around a dinner table is proof that food is in our hearts and souls. Next time you’re at a restaurant, take a look around. Try to find someone who looks miserable sitting with loved ones – or even colleagues – surrounded by food and wine. I bet you won’t see it. What I bet you will see is celebration, radiance, and the art of why we all love food – not just because it tastes good but because every meal has a story of love behind it. So I say, do as the Italians do – invite a group over to sit at that long, dining room table more than a few times a year, break out that nice bottle of wine you’ve been saving for a special occasion, and for crying out loud, eat more pasta. I promise, it won’t make you fat and you will love life a little more.


Pasta Let’s Eat

SALUD! COOKING SCHOOL AT WHOLE FOODS POPLAR

Late Summer Carbonara

1 pound dry spaghetti 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 small onion, julienned 1 zucchini, small dice 1 small eggplant, small dice 1 carrot, julienned

½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved 2 large eggs 1 cup freshly grated parmigianoreggiano, plus more for serving Freshly ground black pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain the pasta well, reserving 1/2 cup of the starchy cooking water to use in the sauce if needed. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a deep skillet over medium flame. Add the onion, zucchini, eggplant and carrot to the pan and saute for about 3 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked through. Add in the cherry tomatoes, to warm through slightly. Add the hot, drained spaghetti to the pan and toss for 2 minutes to coat the strands in the vegetables and olive oil in the pan. Beat the eggs and parmesan together in a small bowl, stirring well to prevent lumps. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the egg/cheese mixture into the pasta, whisking quickly until the eggs thicken, but do not scramble (this is done off the heat to ensure this does not happen.) Thin out the sauce with a bit of the reserved pasta water, until it reaches desired consistency. Season the carbonara with several turns of freshly ground black pepper and taste for salt. Mound the spaghetti carbonara into warm serving bowls. Serve with additional parmesan cheese.

TIPS TO COOKING

Perfect Pasta Courtesy of Salud! Cooking School

Whether dried or fresh, there are a few tricks to making your pasta perfect every time. 1. Make sure that you are cooking the pasta in plenty of salted, boiling water. To accurately cook one pound of pasta, you need six quarts of water. This allows the pasta to easily move in the water and not stick to itself. And make sure to season the water well with salt – this is your chance to season the pasta itself, so don’t miss out! 2. Once you’ve added the pasta to the pot, use a pair of tongs or spoon to move the pasta in the water to help preventing it from sticking,and sure to stir occasionally during the cook time to prevent sticking. 3. Do not add oil to the pasta water. This creates an oil slick over the pasta so that when you toss the pasta in your desired sauce, rather than cling to the pasta it will slide right off! If you’re cooking the pasta in enough water, you’ll find that you don’t need the oil.

4. Taste for doneness. Sure, you can throw a piece against the wall and see if it sticks, but then you’ll be cleaning your walls as well as the pots and pans after dinner. Let your teeth be the guide. If it’s tender to the bite but not mushy, you’re there. That’s al dente and literally means “to the teeth/bite” and is the perfect consistency for cooked pasta. With filled and fresh pastas, once they’ve floated to the top of the water, you’re good to go. 5. Finally, save a bit of the pasta cooking water. There is a lot of starch in the water and sometimes a little bit can help give a minimalistic sauce more moisture, binding and richness.

HU DDL E UP

by Andy Savage, Highpoint Church, andysavage.com It’s football season. Whether or not you have a favorite team, you can’t help but get a little caught up in the hype! So, what does football have to do with your marriage? One essential element of football is often overlooked, the huddle. In the midst of the excitement and intensity of the game teams huddle up…and that’s what I suggest you do in your marriage!

The Marriage Huddle. Your marriage will rise and fall on your communication. It’s essential that couples take time to “huddle up” and coordinate life together. The huddle can be as simple as an intentional conversation where you turn your backs on the rest of the world and talk about your marriage. The huddle is the time when 3 key communications take place.

1) Encouragement. You need regular opportunities to encourage your spouse. Let them know that you see and appreciate them and the ways they work hard to make life better for you both. The huddle is a great place to celebrate with each other and recognize the contributions of each teammate. Your spouse needs encouragement far more than you realize. 2) Call the next play. Every couple needs time to huddle up and plan the future together. The future may be anything from plans for the weekend to dreams of retirement. In each case your marriage team needs to call the play together. This creates alignment. With each “play” you understand each other’s responsibilities and strengths and you map out success from there. Calling for plays in isolation

creates misalignment, confusion and resentment. 3) Vulnerability. The huddle is a safe place to admit weakness. None of us enjoys doing so, but when you do your teammate is able to say, “I’ve got your back!” Your marriage cannot move any better or faster than the current level of vulnerability you share. It may take some practice but learn to say, “I need you…” This is an invitation for your spouse to make adjustments, meet a need, or communicate love more effectively. Ready? Break!
