On Saturday, September 7, Chef Hanh Le Kent taught a Vietnamese Cooking Class for 12 at a private home in Oakland. The event was donated by Kent to benefit Family Sanity.  The menu consisted of Fresh Shrimp Rolls, Vietnamese Chicken Salad, Fried Rice with Pineapple and Shrimp, and Vietnamese Pork Chops.
The group was full of foodies who enjoyed themselves immensely. You might say it was a “delicious fundraiser”.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Another fun Family Sanity fundraiser took place on Saturday and Sunday, October 26 & 27.

It was a special Open Studio and Art Sale in the art studio of Lisa Scimens, Family Sanity Founder.

More than 30 new works were exhibited, as well as art cards and other creative offerings. It was a great opportunity to do some early holiday
shopping and support Family Sanity!
