Second Saturdays Dinner- A Fun and Delicious Fundraiser!

The evening of Saturday, February 11th, family, friends and EnrichLA-ers gathered at the Los Feliz home of Tomas O’Grady for the first in our series of “Second Saturdays” dinner fundraisers!  Guests were treated to a gourmet dinner, yummy wine, and good conversation.  All of the proceeds from the dinner benefit the garden at Academic Leadership Community, where we will be installing an outdoor kitchen in the near future!

Beyond being able to raise funds for such an amazing cause, the evening was a great opportunity to meet other friends of school gardens.  Teachers from some of the gardens attended, some of our regular volunteers were there, and family members of the EnrichLA staff came together to celebrate making a positive change in LA schools.

Resident photographer Josh Walker uploaded photos from the Luther Burbank build earlier that day to show to the guests, and EnrichLA Nutrition Director Kelly Burke worked tirelessly in the kitchen to feed over 30 people.  It was truly a wonderful dinner, and we want to extend a huge thank you to everyone that joined us for such a meaningful event.
