Spring Soiree to Benefit WALDEN FAMILY SERVICES


In celebration of National Foster Care Month, Executive Chef Jeffrey Strauss hosted an intimate dinner at Pamplemousse Grille on May 7, 2019 to benefit Walden Family Services.

The event raised critically-needed funds for Walden’s wide-ranging programs on behalf of children and youth in foster care.

In keeping with the theme “An Evening with Jeffrey,” the night began with a private reception at Chef Strauss’s home, where guests were treated to an array of delicious bites before travelling to Pamplemousse Grille.
