Maybe last week’s earthquake was a jolting reminder of Haiti? Yeah, Haiti fell off the radar for a lot of us. Put it back on your screen by joining chef Thomas McNaughton and author Ethan Casey on Friday November 11th at ~DEVIL’S GULCH RANCH~ in Nicasio for a fundraiser dinner and conversation with Casey about his upcoming new book, Bearing the Bruise: A Lifetime in Haiti.
Starting at 5pm, the dinner promises to feature culinary delights from guest chef Thomas McNaughton (Flour + Water), as well as stimulating conversation with Haiti Coffee (working collaboratively to rebuild the Haitian coffee industry), Mark Pasternak and Myriam Kaplan-Pasternak of Devil’s Gulch Ranch (working with Haitian agribusiness Makouti Agro Enterprise and USAID’s Partners of the Americas Farmer to Farmer program), and author Casey (veteran journalist, editor, and author).
Tickets are $200 each, all inclusive. Funds raised will directly support Casey’s book sponsorship program, and Devil’s Gulch Educational Services’ agricultural development work in Haiti. Email or call for more info, 415-826-1500.
