Roberta Koz Wilson and her brother recording artist/ jazz musician Dave Koz started Cookies for a Koz four years ago to honor the memory of their mother Audrey. When Dave was starting his music career, Audrey, who designed a recipe for a one of a kind chocolate chip cookie, began sending cookies to every meeting and every performance. The jazz world fell in love with Dave and Audrey claimed that her cookies were largely responsible for his success.
When Audrey suddenly passed away in November 2005, Roberta felt compelled to carry on her mother’s legacy of spreading love and magic through her cookies. She started with Audrey’s concept, all the while making it her business to give back to this crazed world in which we are all trying to make a difference. 10% of all the proceeds goes to the Starlight Foundation, Audrey’s favorite cause. To date the company has donated over $30,000 to the charity. Dave Koz has been the Global Ambassador for the Foundation for the last 15 years.
