Last night will be an unforgettable experience for one of our teens who was invited by Chef Brian Malarkey and Chef Joe Magnanelli to help prep for the menu preview of Animae – the highly anticipated Asian inspired restaurant that will open in Downtown San Diego!
Moments like these are true examples of how our youth are experiencing the joys of childhood and a sense of hope for a brighter future regardless of their struggles. We’re fortunate for people in our community who make such life-changing impact on our youth, such as Chef Malarkey and Chef Magnanelli. Not only were they generous in creating an experience of joy for our teen, but they also donated proceeds from an auction item to our Culinary Program!
A big thank you to the Chefs, everyone from Animae and Herb & Wood, and our very own Tina Reyes-Magnanelli, who oversees our Culinary and Life Skills programs.
