First off, thank you so much for continuing to support our Cassia team throughout this pandemic. Whether you’ve joined us again for on-site dining or you’ve been ordering takeout, it brings us great joy to be feeding you and providing a safe environment to reunite with loved ones. It’s been a challenging year for so many, and while the world is starting to open up again, our city’s unsheltered community still desperately needs our help. In 2020, according to the Los Angeles Housing Authority Homeless Count, 75% of individuals experiencing homelessness in LA County were people of color.
Last summer, our annual LA Chefs for Human Rights (LACHR) dinner went virtual and raised a record $234,976 for The People Concern – one of L.A. County’s largest housing and social service agencies and the expert in connecting with people living on the streets, bringing them inside and then keeping them housed. If you’re not familiar with LACHR, Cassia Co-Owners Kim Luu-Ng and Bryant Ng founded this fundraising platform in 2016 to benefit and increase awareness of human rights causes that directly affect our community. They’ve gone on to raise a total of $734,000 for The People Concern and Program for Torture Victims!
Given the success of last year’s event, we’re going virtual again on Friday, June 4 at 7:00 p.m. for “Tonight! With The People Concern and LACHR.”
- The evening will include a virtual program with:
- A multi-course, family-style meal created by Chef Bryant Ng and the Cassia team, delivered straight to your door on the day of the event, along with curated beverages from our generous sponsors (see below).
- Access to the live, virtual program starting at 7 p.m.
- A post-event thank you gift.
Although COVID-19 has disrupted our day-day routines and changed our way of connecting, The People Concern’s staff, program participants and dedicated volunteers have shown tremendous resiliency and what it truly means to support and care for each other.
There are a variety of ticket and sponsorship packages available now until Thursday, May 27, or you can make a donation directly to The People Concern – every little bit counts! All ticket and sponsorship proceeds go directly to The People Concern.
