Il Ristorante Luce DeCristo
Tonight was one of our middle school's biggest outreach events of the school year - Restaurant Night. The idea was the families of middle schoolers invited other families to come to the Warehouse, where they would be served an Italian dinner. I don't know where they come up with these ideas... it was pretty awesome.
We only went because our youth admin/catalyst wanted all the youth staff and their families to come if they could. (I felt kind of funny about being there in general, but it was fun.) The food was great, they had totally transformed the Warehouse and there were tons of families there. Really fun.
It took over 100 volunteers to make the night happen, from cooking, decorating, clean up, etc. There is a whole Warehouse page dedicated to volunteers for the event, with very clear specific needs, instructions and contact information.
By the way, those are real 'fake' moustaches on those boys - not digitally enhanced...
