A Birthday Party that Grew for 44 Years

This the story of a birthday party that grew for 44 years!  As a young member of the Oakland Athletic Club playing handball, exercising and meeting local business professionals, I had a locker-mate whose name was Lenny Gross, Esq.  One year, toward the end of the month of May, I saw that he was feeling down and he explained that he had recently lost his loving wife Barbara.

Jackie started working with Scott’s Restaurants 35 years ago. She… Continue reading Leaders at Scott’s Restaurants
