She was a second mother to SO many of us. She brought home cooked holiday meals to the Frolic Room for 20+ years, knowing it would make the holidays better, it did. Gita was born in Romania, but luckily for us, she and her cousins settled in LA, where they remained very close. Over the years, she bartended at El Cholo, the White Horse and the Frolic Room, and was there for us in good times and bad! She was a fantastic bartender and was always there to listen and tell a great story.
She was a great friend to all and always gave more than she took… now it is our turn to give to her, by helping her family, daughter Abby and Schatzi, her husband for over 40 years. There are so many costs involved with a loved ones passing; the family really needs help.
PLEASE give anything you can, even $5., toward helping them get to their goal. Anything and everything will help, and if you are so fortunate and can give more, please do! No amount is too small!
Look at it like buying Gita a glass of wine to say thank you!!
AND PLEASE SHARE ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA, WE NEED TO SPREAD THE WORD!
