On Wednesday, May 18 80 of our closest LINC friends came together to hear from local entrepreneur Kathleen Day, owner of Katalina's, The Little Cafe with Lots of Local Goodness.
Guests first enjoyed a networking reception while sampling Katalina's famous Nutella-filled pancake balls. Then Kathleen shared her fascinating story from training as a cook in France to preparing a meal for No Doubt and eventually opening Katalina's Cafe. Whether the origin of her produce, the crop of a photo or a word in a tagline, obsessing over each ingredient is in Kathleen's DNA. That's what makes Katalina's what it is today--an award-winning cafe and her life's mission.
We wrapped up the evening with a kick off to our Stock the Shelves donation drive benefiting Student Success Stores. Guests were asked to visit our Amazon Wish List to donate basic needs items for students in three local, high-poverty schools where Student Success Stores is setting up free shops. To donate, select items from the Amazon Wish List and choose Student Success Stores as the shipping option.
