Ahead of the brunch, Trina stopped by rolling out to dish out more details on the holiday event.
What is going on with this brunch you have coming up?
It’s actually chef Darryl Taylor’s [event]. And really, even though it’s a Mother’s Day Brunch, it’s also a fundraiser.
He has a very interesting story, and I don’t want to speak for him, but he’s undergone dialysis. He had kidney failure. He had a whole transplant. So he has a renal foundation. So that organization is raising money for other families who had other members that have renal failure.
My second husband actually passed away from Reno Cancer. So that’s pretty near and dear to me.
How did you end up partnering with Chef Darryl?
I’m hosting the event, but there are going to be other people there. There’s going to be a comedian there, there’s a spoken word artist. There’s a saxophonist, so it’s good. You’re going to be entertained.
It’s not just sit, eat, be bored and wait for someone to talk, it’s not that at all.
You’re definitely going to be entertained. Even if you can’t attend the event, you can go to Eventbrite to purchase tickets, or you can go to either chef Darryl Taylor’s Instagram or mine, and you can go ahead and scan
the flyer and make a donation.
It’s Mother’s Day. How will you balance family, work and being an event host this holdiay?
The great thing is my children are old.
I’m not old, my children are old.
My oldest son recently got married in December, so I can’t completely hold him. I have to share him with his wife’s family now. My youngest just turned 25, so it’s not like I have small children anymore. That gives me a really great balance. I’m actually at my mom’s place right now.
I’m in their little meeting area, so I had to come in and hug my mother’s neck because she’s not going to be home for Mother’s Day.
