10th Day Before Thanksgiving Feast


Sadly, this year won’t be the celebration we’d planned. Nearly three years ago, our incomparable chef Cordelia began work on an event space in the Santa Monica mountains, Malibou Lake Lodge. We were so excited to move our Thanksgiving operations out there this year, but mother nature had other plans. Fortunately, the Lodge survived unscathed, but many surrounding neighbors in Malibou Lake have been devastated by the Woolsey fire. Thirty homes were lost. Cordelia will not be able to lead our kitchen efforts this year, but she will be cooking and serving  a Thanksgiving meal to her Malibou Lake neighbors, returning the Lodge to it's original purpose of a community gathering space. After all Cordelia has done for our Santa Monica community, we are honored to be able to step up and support her Malibou Lake neighbors by expanding our fundraising efforts to cover their meal.

Thankfully, we've already surpassed our goal for our annual meal, and recruited all the help we need. But WE HAVE UPPED OUR INITIAL GOAL to $3000. Thank you for stepping up this holiday season to support these efforts.

We're so grateful for all you do.

- Joy and Angelina
