Recap of Stir It 28: Haiti Fundraiser In Los Angeles

Published by at 7:34 pm under Foodie Events

What a wonderful feast we had at the Haiti Fundraiser on Sunday! There were plates and plates of delicious finger foods that were being passed around by our fellow food bloggers, as well as fancy cocktails being stirred up by Grey Goose and Natalie from The Liquid Muse. Chrystal Baker, our lovely hostess from The Duo Dishes, organized the event beautifully and Greg from Sippity Sup provided an amazing location for the party – a charming and lavish home in the Hollywood Hills.

We want to share with you some photos we took from the event so you can see all the hard work that everyone contributed to make this a successful fundraiser. To see full-sized images from other food bloggers, check out the Facebook photo album that Chrystal has put together.

Greg from Sippity Sup couldn't resist all the goodies!

The Grey Goose bar had some signature cocktails for us to enjoy - like the "Hearts for Haiti" and "Celery Delight."

My friend Nancy Goodman Iland was able to make it to the event with her son.

The food bloggers are working hard to prep their dishes in the kitchen.

Daniel passed around our Bacon-Wrapped Scallops with Chipotle Mayo Sauce. It didn't last very long!

Deviled Eggs by Patti Londre and Proscuitto-Wrapped Dates with Goat Cheese from Craig.

Lemon Bars and Mini Egg Salad Sandwiches were just some of the many great treats we had!

All in all, it was a stellar event and we had a great time eating, drinking, and most of all, mingling with our fellow food bloggers and guests. We didn’t get to chat with every single person there, but I’m sure there will be other foodie events in the future to meet again. Thank you for having us a part of this fantastic fundraiser! Cheers!

    I have seen the photos circulating and jealous that New Jersey has nothing like this, or the support of bloggers!

    Glad you have fun!

    Looks like a great event! We had a nice turnout in Atlanta, too. Lots of great people and fabulous food! The AJC (newspaper) was supposed to run a piece, but I have yet to see it. If they do, I will post a link on my blog.

    That was a lot of fun, and I’m glad I got 2 helpings of your bacon wrapped scallops. I knew it wouldn’t last long! :) BTW, maybe we should all get together for dinner or something along with Tammy! Let me know!
