SAVE the SPOT Vegan Vegetarian Restaurant

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Deanna. I've known Tonya Beaudet for over 20 years. In all the years I've known her she's been dedicated to two things, providing delicious, healthy food to Southern California, and raising her two daughters. The Spot in Hermosa Beach has been serving vegan & vegetarian since 1981 - before it was COOL. 
With the pandemic, the world-famous Spot Restaurant has suffered setbacks. Tonya's trying everything to keep the doors open - delivery, to go orders, social media advertising - you name it! Just now, when things are getting better - her utility bills, delayed during Covid by the city, are coming due. This could take the restaurant under. We can't let this historic vegetarian restaurant, that's been a part of the Southern California landscape for more than 40 years go away!

Tonya has always gone out of her way to provide food to the community, and to those who are homeless. Now it's our turn to support her. 
I know my favorite dish is the Savory Steamers. You have yours too. Please donate anything you can spare to Save the Spot! WE have just a few weeks to meet our goal. We can do it!
