Few people have captured the heart and soul of California like Huell Howser and his “California’s Gold” television series. We invite you to honor that amazing accomplishment at a very special celebration, Friday, February 8, 2013, beginning at 2 p.m. at Chapman University in the City of Orange. This “Golden Legacy” event will include artwork and memorabilia from Huell’s life and rare footage of him talking about his career and legacy. You can also visit with folks featured on “California’s Gold” and enjoy replays of some of the memorable episodes.
