SABOR Hosts Dinner to Benefit Project We Own It

November 11, 2012

In case you haven’t heard, our beloved Co-op is in a sticky situation. The landlord has decided to sell the property they’ve been leasing for over 30 years, giving them 40 days to come up with a $200,000 down payment on a loan that will help them OWN the property for like, forever. The good news is that Project We Own It has already raised $114,000.

The even better news is that SABOR is hosting a 4-course benefit dinner this Sunday at Hana Kitchen. A $20 donation is requested by Friday to cover ingredient costs. All proceeds go to Project We Own It.
