Arrive at a home, be handed a fresh and fabulous Haitian- inspired cocktail and sit down to garden-fresh meal made from locally grown ingredients. The menu is a secret...but will include a signature cocktail, a few noshes and appropriate beverage pairings for each course.
It's just all about bringing together adventuresome people who love food and giving back to the community. Donations cover the cost of bringing great raw ingredients, the talented chef Manouschka Guerrier (Food Network's Private Chefs of Beverly Hills) http://singleservingbytes.com/ and two lucky organizations together.
The evening will begin with a signature cocktail and a few noshes. Then it it is on to a family-style feast lovingly prepared and curated by Chef Manouschka with appropriate beverage pairings.
The suggested donation for the evening is $100 per person. The portion of your contribution in excess of $45 is tax deductible.
Organizations benefiting from this event are:
Busted Foundation- grew out of the success of the 2004 Bowling For Boobies® created to support a friend while she was in her fight with breast cancer. She was in treatment to save her life only to find that her next battle would be financial. The event was such a success that year that we were all inspired to continue our efforts and reach out to more women in our local community. Since 2004, $250,000 in grants have been disbursed to local women battling cancer.
PPWC- Founded in 1925, the Pacific Palisades Woman's Club is a non-profit organization that brings together energetic and socially minded women in friendship to serve others and our community and to preserve the distinctive character of the Palisades. Our clubhouse, located at 901 Haverford Ave. was built with contributions from the community in 1951 and has served as the heart of many social, civic and educational events for many years. It's classic mid-century modern aesthetic is threatened by deferred maintenance and it requires much-needed updates to its engineering and infrastructure so that it may continue to serve our community.
