In the swanky ambiance of Buckhead’s Chops Lobster Bar, Chris and Nicole Carlos and DeMarre and Iesha Carroll hosted the second annual PSC Dinner. PSC (primary sclerosing cholangitis), a disease of the bile ducts, has been a battle for both Nicole and DeMarre. In their fight against the debilitating condition, they developed the Carroll Family Foundation and the Carlos Jockisch PSC Foundation, the benefactors of the dinner event. The two organizations raise money for the Mayo Clinic, where extensive research takes places to create new innovations for fighting PSC. Among the 84 generous patrons who attended the upscale fundraiser were special guests Pano and Georgia Karatassos of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group and Atlanta Hawks players Paul Millsap, Mike Scott and Thabo Sefolosha. Dr. Sumera Rizvi of the Mayo Clinic was also in attendance, sharing with the crowd the extensive PSC research currently underway. The seated five-course dinner featured wild Oregon morel mushroom risotto, herb-crusted Charleston flounder and Japanese Miyazaki A5 Kobe filet. A live auction featured exclusive Atlanta Hawks and Toronto Raptors jerseys. The event raised $205,000 for the cause. – Jessica Wise
