Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and 28 of his chefs and his management team recently visited the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health with Keep Memory Alive founder and chairman Larry Ruvo. Ruvo’s relationship with chef Nobu dates back to the second Keep Memory Alive dinner, the predecessor to the “Power of Love” Gala, where chef Wolfgang Puck brought Nobu and stated that Nobu was going to be a big deal someday.
Ruvo took the group on a tour to see the stunning architecture of the building, designed by Frank Gehry, where they walked through the clinical wing and were introduced to the doctors at the Center for Brain Health. The proceeds from Nobu’s first ever “Nobu United” at Caesars Palace on Wednesday, Oct. 9, where Nobu chefs from around the world collaborated on an extraordinary dinner, benefitted Keep Memory Alive.
The Center for Brain Health’s mission to fight brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s and dementia, is financially supported by donations made to its nonprofit fundraising arm, Keep Memory Alive.
