Oak-Leyden Developmental Services' 26th Annual Benefit, "We've Got Great Taste," offered a delectable dinner by Diamond Sponsor Cucina Paradiso, an open bar, a lively band, "Lost in Thought," a roving musician, tables of raffle and auction gifts to make every guest eager to get started that night on his holiday list.
Our culture has become so insensitive to the way of the hat that we've ceased to make a place for it. And when I say "hat," I mean a man's hat, I don't mean a baseball cap (good for playing baseball) or a stocking cap (guaranteed to make you look like the village idiot).
After Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the central Philippines last week many churches, non-profit organizations and restaurants held benefit events to donate food, clothing and money to help in relief efforts. On Tuesday, Nov. 26 Cucina Paradiso, 814 North Boulevard, will donate 15% of the evening's dine-in and carry-out sales to the Philippine Red Cross. Call 708.848.3434 to make reservations.
