Help for Angelo & Mariko

Hi Everyone,

Our dear friend, Angelo has been working hard these last few month to open an amazing new restaurant in LA, Cal Mare. Since it is still the early weeks of debuting this project, Angelo has worked many late nights to make this all come to fruition. After another long day putting together amazing porchetta and the other ridiculously delicious things on the menu, Angelo was heading home to Mariko and was cutoff on his scooter by a car making a poorly timed left turn. After a terrifying night of not being able to find her husband when he did not make it home (every significant other's worst nightmare), Angelo was finally located in a hospital. 

Angelo's road to recovery will be long, but it looks like he is poised to make a full recovery. Mariko and Angelo have a hard journey ahead of them; emotionally, as well as, financially. Medical expenses will no doubt stretch out for months, coupled with the two of them most likely not being able to work for some time, making the normal expenses of life an intimidating thought. 

Those close to them know that these two people are amazing and have always been so generous with their time, love, and resources. From flying up after the Napa/Sonoma fires to cook for those first responders who were protecting the place they long called home, to donating to victims in the Venture/LA fires just before their own personal tragedy struck. They always seem to put others before themselves. Even through that first horrible night, Mariko was worried about how worried her friends were about them. 

If you could, we are asking for small donations to help these wonderful people through this very difficult time.  We all know, they would do the same for us in a heartbeat. Thank you in advance and please know that any amount is truly appreciated!
