Sorry all … family illness has temporarily put the Eat Well – Do Good Dinners on hold. I hope to bring them back before summer but next fall at the latest. In the meantime, those who know him will be happy to know that my dad has turned the corner (knock wood) and is finally making progress after four surgeries and eight months on antibiotics. My mom – the Libby in Team Libby – is now in the Alzheimer’s unit of our local nursing home. She is doing well, charming the staff and other patients. She inspires me everyday.
Good food, good company and good deeds.
What is it? Every month I welcome old friends, new friends and soon-to-be friends around my table for a special dinner. But it’s more than a party. By combining grassroots philanthropy with a fun and festive evening, these dinners raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.
Since 2010 generous diners and donors contributed more than $7,000. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Who benefits? Everyone.
There’s me. I get to spend a great evening with wonderful people and see donations funneled to an organization I believe in.
There’s you. You’ll enjoy great company, great food and the happy knowledge that you are helping a worthy cause.
There’s Alzheimer’s Association. They will receive funding they urgently need for a cure, patient care and caregiver and family support.
Why Alzheimer’s Association? My grandfather had it. Now my mother, along with 5.3 million Americans, suffers from it.
When is it happening? (With a few exceptions) the dinners are the first or second Sunday of the month.
How does it work? It’s easy to join the party. You just donate $25 (per person) to Alzheimer’s Association and bring along a bottle of wine (also per person) on the night of the dinner party. I donate the food and my time so 100% of your donation goes to Alzheimer’s Association. You even get the tax deduction! It is my way of saying thank you for supporting an organization which is near and dear to my heart and my family.
To reserve a spot(s), email me or call me at 603.526.7319. I’ll let you know if space is available. Reservations are first come/first serve. Next, make your donation; you can donate on-line or by check – but please do it quickly. To confirm your spot at the dinner you must send me proof of your donation.
The next dinner is in September … exact date TBD! To join the dinner you will need to make a minimum donation of $25 per person (feel free to donate more) to The Alzheimer’s Association. For on-line donations, visit the Team Libby HQ. Alternatively, you can donate by check. Make your check out to The Alzheimer’s Association and send it to me at PO Box 1875, New London, NH 03257. As soon as you confirm your donation, I’ll confirm your seat at the party.
What’s for Dinner? It’s a bit too early to decide but you can count on delightful bistro fare, a little homey and a just a tad elegant. (Please let me know when you sign up if you have any food allergies.)
I look forward to sharing my table with you. Many thanks and bon appétit!
