Dr. Michael Salem was gracious to open his beautiful home to the National Jewish trustees for their pre-meeting cocktail party. Dr. Salem's home is an historic 100-year-old house on Cheesman Park.

This was a real opportunity for attendees to get a taste of old architecture and excellent food. Whirled Peas Catering stopped at nothing to display their finest in treats. From the passed mini bison sliders to the giant platter of oysters, there was a real treat for everyone's taste buds.

This is the one time during the year when all of the National Jewish Board Members and Trustees have the opportunity to come together to meet each other. There wasn't a shortage of conversation during the evening, and everyone was excited for the Annual Board meeting which took place at National Jewish on the next day.
