This year it’s virtual!

Gifts from the Heart 2020
A virtual online event premiered

Thursday, October 22, 2020
8:30-9:30 AM

Now available on demand and free of charge!


Since we can’t have our cherished One from the Heart Awards Breakfast physically together on October 22nd, we held it virtually! Now this inspirational, fun, and supportive event is now available on demand and free of charge, while we all continue to shelter in place. Watch the video above to check out a special presentation which includes celebrity chef, humanitarian extraordinaire, and long-time Pathways supporter Jesse Cool!

You’ll also meet some of Pathways’ frontline Healthcare Heroes…who continue to provide home health, palliative, and hospice care wherever needed, COVID or not. Enjoy a rare glimpse at the big hearts under those blue masks! Hear the story of just one of the many hospice patients they have helped in unexpected ways—despite the challenges of providing the same excellent, compassionate healthcare as always during the coronavirus pandemic.

AND hear the news all our One from the Heart Awards Breakfast fans have been waiting for: the identity
of the superstar who will be the keynote speaker for our in-person breakfast next year.

And finally, our long-time friend and supporter, award-winning reporter Rita Williams, was with us again as emcee to keep things rolling. Enjoy our Gifts from the Heart presentation from the comfort of your own home!!! Grab a cup of coffee, click play and spend just under an hour of your morning with us, SAFELY!

We miss seeing you and look forward to gathering with all of you in person – safely. In the meantime, Pathways’ HEALTHCARE HEROES need your support now more than ever before!

Special Guest Presentation

Chef Jesse Cool

Jesse Ziff Cool has been dedicated to sustainable agriculture and healthy, organic, and delectable cuisine for more than four decades…way before it was “cool.” Jesse’s legendary Flea Street Café in Menlo Park continues to turn out awesome meals, via take-out for now. Founder of five restaurants, including Cool Café at Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center, she has helped Stanford and other hospitals provide healthy food for patients and staff. Author of seven cookbooks, she has taught eco-conscious food strategy, using her home garden and kitchen as a classroom. And she does it all with a big heart, giving of her time and resources to many projects and communities. Jesse and her staff are currently cooking “Meals of Gratitude” for frontline healthcare workers, firefighters, evacuees, and volunteers. Appropriately for our Gifts from the Heart virtual event, Jesse will share her time and knowledge in an exclusive peek at her at-home cooking for COVID times and beyond!
