Unlike many celebrity chefs, who treat cooking like some mystical and convoluted ritual, Ina Garten (The Barefoot Countessa) approaches each dish with the nonchalance of someone who could be doing something else. That’s because she could be. Between 1974 and 1978, Garten worked in the Office of Management and Budget at the White House; starting in 1976, she was responsible for the budget of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and for part of the Department of Energy’s. How Garten went from analyzing nuclear policy to overseeing her own cooking empire is one of the unlikelier stories of American reinvention.
The Miami Marlins, South Florida’s major league baseball team, will donate a portion of the proceeds from an upcoming game to LGBT youth.
On June 14, the Marlins will take on the St. Louis Cardinals at “You Can Play Night.” A portion of the proceeds from the $20 tickets will benefit youth organizations like Pridelines Youth Services, Safe Schools South Florida, the Pride Center, NVEEE, Sunserve, Youth Pride Band, and the Alliance for LGBTQ Youth.
“With the recent announcement of Jason Collins coming out as a pro athlete, the timing for You Can Play Night is perfect,” Justin Wyse, sales manager for South Florida Gay News, said in a statement. “The message the You Can Play Project makes to LGBT youth and their allies who are involved in sports is that locker rooms should be safe and sports venues should be free from homophobia. Athletes should be judged on talent, heart, and work ethic and not sexual orientation.”
So psyched to hear about this. You go, Marlins.
