The Addi and Cassi Fund Presents:
Moonlight Garden Gala
A benefit for Childhood Alzheimer’s (NP-C)

On Saturday, May 10, 2008, 1000 friends and family joined us for a sold out star-filled night at the new Downtown Reno Ballroom to help find a cure to “Childhood Alzheimer’s” (Niemann-Pick Type C), a rare, progressive and fatal neurological disease that is robbing children of all ages around the world of their ability to walk, talk, or even remember the name of their favorite stuffed animal.

The event was a mystical evening of hope, wonder and childhood dreams as we honored our four-year-old twins, Addi and Cassi Hempel, and children all over the world who suffer from Niemann Pick Tyep C.  Our guests will be treated to an elegant evening with a celebrity performance by Meilnda Doolittle and Terry Fator.  We held silent and live auctions, uplifting music in this enchanting atmosphere and transformed the ballroom into a beautiful moonlit garden, designed in the spirit of a child’s imagination, with tree-lined paths, twinkle lights, fireflies and a fountain of wishes.

November 16, 2007 by  
Filed under Recipe Submissions


1 large organic butternut squash, halved lengthwise
2 tablespoons olive oil (plus oil for baking squash)
1 onion, chopped
2 cinnamon sticks broken in half
2 bay leaves broken in half
1 teaspoon of coarse salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ cup Calvados (apple brandy) or brandy (optional)
28 – 32 oz Organic Vegetable Broth (amount depending on can or box)
6 oz. Soy Milk


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 1 large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Brush squash flesh with oil. Place on prepared baking sheet, cut side down. Roast squash until very tender, about 1 hour. Cool 20 minutes. Remove seeds. Scoop out squash pulp and transfer to large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons oil in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add onions, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, salt, and pepper. Sauté until onions are soft, about 10 minutes. Add Calvados and simmer until almost all of liquid evaporates, about 1 minute. Discard cinnamon stick pieces and bay leaves. Add mixture to squash in large bowl and stir to combine. Working in batches, puree squash mixture in blender with vegetable broth and soy milk until smooth. Bring soup to simmer. Ladle soup into bowls. Optional, garnish each with dollop of cinnamon cream and serve. OPTIONAL – Mix fat free sour cream, 1 tablespoon warm water, and ground cinnamon in medium bowl to blend.  (Soup and cinnamon cream can be prepared 1 day ahead.  Cool soup slightly, then cover and refrigerate. Cover and refrigerate cinnamon cream.)
