Hope-Net President Gill Wagner’s smile could hardly have been bigger as she and Executive Director Douglas Ferraro accepted a check for $2,300 on behalf of Hope-Net.
Larchmont Grill owners Mark Donofrio and Sean Bates were delighted with the response to their Hope-Net Thursday night dinner benefit in February in which 20% of sales were donated to Hope Net. The restauranteurs are considering other opportunities for doing good which make us feel good too, so stay tuned!
Hope-Net provides food, shelter and self-help assistance to homeless individuals and families in Los Angeles. We heard about a recent birthday party in the neighborhood where the honoree asked that in lieu of presents, guests brought donations for Hope-Net. Now there’s another generous, and Hope-Full celebration.
And for you next evening at Larchmont Grill: Hancock Park: The Drink
