Volunteerism has been an important part of Max's identity for a long time. When I met him, he'd participated in two All Hands Disaster Response projects in and out of the United States and was strongly considering a career in disaster response. Since then, he's donated his time to Big Brothers Big Sisters and rarely turns down the opportunity to participate in a charity event.
Before Eden Hill even had it's space, I contacted the Queen Anne Helpline to see how we could help. The Helpline provides financial and other assistance to residents in Queen Anne, Magnolia, and South Lake Union. Coming off a year of case management, I know first hand how vital organizations like the Queen Anne Helpline are in the survival of our community.
That's how we got connected with the Taste of Queen Anne. An annual fundraiser, the Taste of Queen Anne brings together restaurants who've donated "bites" to showcase their restaurant. It's a great way for the Queen Anne community to come together, have a nice time, and raise money for a wonderful organization.
We're presenting a bite of our "Lick the Bowl" dessert -- a taste of foie gras cake batter atop a seared pound cake.
The Taste of Queen Anne is this Saturday, October 10, from 6:30-10pm. Tickets are still available by calling the Queen Anne Helpline office. Please join us in supporting our community.
