Here is the much anticipated "updated" on the Fraiche Fundraiser mentioned in our last post. This press release has been put on the wire and with hope will have some media coverage for the event!
FRAICHE RESTAURANT SANTA MONICA CREATES SPECIAL COCKTAIL FUNDRAISER FOR CONCERN FOUNDATION FOR CANCER RESEARCH/LA MARATHON ON THURSDAY, FEB 25 FROM 5:30PM ON....
On February 25, Olivia Fox, the 22-year-old model/actress who suffered devastating leg/bone cancer last year, will host, along with her father Keith, owner of Fraiche Santa Monica, a Cocktail Fundraiser to raise money for the Concern Foundation for Cancer Research/LA Marathon. In celebration of her miraculous recovery, Olivia will walk the LA Marathon 5K on March 20 (the day before the big race) to raise money for Concern and cancer research and to bring attention to the devastation Cancer causes.
To make this truly "healing" cocktail, Keith Fox brought in mixologist Ryan Quintana to create a signature cocktail called "OLIVIA'S CRUSH", which contains life enhancing ingredients including Organic Blackberries, Acai, House-made Ginger Syrup, Reishi, Mint, Vodka and Prosecco. Olivia and her dear friend actor Kevin Connolly, star of Entourage, will be "bartending" throughout the evening.
Fraiche will begin serving "Olivia's Crush" at 5:30pm throughout the evening. The cocktail will sell for $20, all of which goes directly to the Concern Foundation/LA Marathon fund. Fraiche has set up a comfortable new lounge and a DJ will play throughout the evening. People can stay, drink the healing cocktail, listen to cool music and feel good about raising money for Cancer research. The restaurant will also be serving its regular dinner menu during the evening for people who wish to stay for dinner.
Fraiche opened its first restaurant in Culver City in 1997 winning best new restaurant of the year from Angeleno and Los Angeles Magazine and was named one of the '10 Best New Restaurants" in the country by New York Times restaurant critic Frank Bruni. The Santa Monica team carries on in the same tradition of Tuscan osterias where simple, rustic dishes are crafted from ingredients obtained at local Village markets.
