Locally Grown X Redbird | Vibiana: Garden Party Benefiting LA’s BEST 2018
It was such an honor to host LA’s BEST Locally Grown Fundraiser in the Garden at Redbird | Vibiana on March 15th, 2018 with Senator Barbara Boxer. Thank you to Chef Michael Cimarusti of Providence, Connie & Ted’s and Il Pesce Cucina (at Eataly), Chef Ray Garcia of Broken Spanish & B.S. Taqueria, Chef Matt Molina of Everson Royce Bar and Triple Beam Pizza (new in Highland Park), Chef Christian Page of Cassell’s and Hotel Normandie, Chef Alice Waters of Chez Panisse from afar, plus a surprise visit from Chef Steve Samson of Sotto and Rossoblu, for their generosity and support.
LA’s BEST provides an after-school enrichment program to 25,000 elementary students ages five to twelve in 198 schools in the most economically distressed neighborhoods throughout LA. Our very own Chef Neal Fraser is a proud board member.
To offer additional post-event support, an auction was held with items including a dinner for 10 in a private home by Chef Neal. The auction closed on March 30th.
Also, listen to the ever-busy Barbara Boxer on her new podcast “Fighting Back with Barbara Boxer,” out now.
