It may look a little different this year, but the tradition continues! All of your favorites will still be there (except YOU have to DIY your international feast)!
We are excited to announce that this year's 2020 Local Hero Award recipient and Key Note speaker is Olympia Auset, Founder of SÜPRMARKT- - a low-cost, organic grocery that pops up weekly to provide 100% organic produce in areas with limited access to food. She is a LA Native and HU Grad and was featured by Wanderlust and Huffington Post for “Give Three Gifts,” a video about innovative kindness. She initiated the creation of the 100 ft. “Let’s Be Good To Each Other” mural at 54th/ Crenshaw in Los Angeles, and is actively engaged in birthing experiences, gatherings, and gifts to LA which make earth a better place to live.
The event program will also feature Peace Corps and RPCVLA updates, opportunity drawings/auction and more! And don't forget to wear your best outfit or Peace Corps t-shirt from your country of service for the costume parade.
We will then move into a virtual cocktail hour and socialization with break-out rooms and fun! We are still ironing out the details but we are excited to bring this event to you!
Event tickets are on sale NOW! There is a suggested donation of $10 with all profits going to benefit the Yamanaka Fund.
We are also asking everyone to submit their favorite recipe from their country of service (click here!) which we will compile into a cookbook to be sent following the event to everyone who purchases a ticket!
We will keep you updated as we formalize all the details soon! Start planning your feast now!
