the bee foundation

For those of you who don’t already know, this is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts… On December 25, 2013, we said goodbye to a remarkable young woman who was taken from us too early. At the age of 27, Jennifer A. Sedney suffered a fatal brain aneurysm that ruptured with few warning signs. The Bee Foundation was created by Christine Kondra and Erin Kreszl to help raise awareness of brain aneurysms and increase funding for innovative research that changes lives. After only three years of dedicated perserverance, the foundation has raised over $750,000, lobbies on Capitol Hill, and continues to further the advancement of preventative brain aneurysm research with the help of their scientific advisory board. Please consider contributing to help support their committment!

sonoma strong

After experiencing wine country through the eyes of our fellow chefs, then seeing the complete devastation our dear friends endured, we were energized to start Sonoma Strong in October 2017. In just one month, we managed to orchestrate a momentum involving many culinary and vinicultural supporters, to raise over $40,000… but are still pushing to close the gap and reach our goal of $50,000. We’ve received relief requests and will be finalizing the donation distribution plan by January 31st, 2017, with the first funds being granted in February 2018.
Many thanks to everyone who’s contributed to this intiative so far! We appreciate your support in our continuing effort to provide direct relief to the families and farmers, in Sonoma County and the North Bay area of California, that were impacted by the wildfires of 2017… But we’re not done yet – There’s still time to make a difference.
