To our Sunday Suppers community,
I am writing to let you know that Sunday Suppers is now on hiatus. The January 21st dinner for The Conscious Kitchen has been rescheduled for March, as a new fundraiser hosted solely by Chez Panisse. There are a handful of tickets still available here. As things stand now, we will not be holding our originally scheduled March and May events.
Thank you for your support of this series over the past four years. Because of you, we have raised close to a quarter of a million dollars for our partners. Thank you to our amazing vendor partners for donating to support this series.
I am so proud of the work that Sunday Suppers has done to celebrate, support, and raise money for the small, local organizations that are tirelessly working on behalf of our East Bay community. However, we will not be holding the series in its current form with Charlie Hallowell at the helm.
As this complex, difficult process unfolds for the restaurants and the greater community, I stand with the women who have come forward and I hope that we can move through this time in a way that encourages true healing, repair of harm, compassion, rigor, and accountability.
Thank you for your understanding.
Lauren Greis, Event Coordinator
The East Bay fine dining scene joins local community organizations for our fourth season of the successful Sunday Suppers series. Launched in May 2014, this event now occurs every other month and brings together spectacular food and good company to raise money for a different East Bay organization working on behalf of the community. To date, we have raised almost $25oK for a number of great causes.
Tickets cost $60-100+ sliding scale per person, wine included, for a multicourse, prix-fixe meal.* The bar will be open throughout the evening for walk-ins to order drinks.
5:00pm Cocktail hour
5:30pm-7:30pm 1st Seating
8:00pm-10:00pm 2nd seating
10:00pm-11:00ish Cocktails continue
Representatives from the beneficiary organization will share information about their work, and we will be raising additional funds at the event. All proceeds, after costs, will be donated to the nonprofit organization. Signature cocktails may be ordered throughout the night at the cash bar – 100% of the proceeds will also be donated to the organization.
*A vegetarian option is offered at all Sunday Supper meals. During the ticket purchasing process, please answer the question to request this alternative.
We are so grateful for the donations provided by a growing list of farms, wineries, distilleries, and other local purveyors, including Blue Heron Farms, Say Hay Farms, Riverdog Farm, Feral Heart Farm, Mezcal La Palabra, California Olive Ranch, Ghost Town Brewing, Q Drinks, and more!
