Keep Eva in the United States!

Help us cover Eva's legal costs so that she can stay in the United States. Eva is part of our restaurant family, rising through the ranks at Brasserie Saison to become head chef at one of the best restaurants in the city. She then had the opportunity to help open the nearby Little Star as sous chef. Driven by her passion for food and her love for her family and her restaurant peers, Eva works 70+ hour weeks. She is her family's sole source of support, support that has been missing during her detention. Little Star is holding Eva's position, but we are hoping to get her back in the kitchen as soon as we can. Please consider a donation to help cover her court fees, legal costs, and to help support her family. Thank you.
